£19.95 for 5 x 30 Mints
5 packs x 30 mints
Normally your dentist will tell you to stop eating sweets as they will damage your teeth… but not these!
Actually developed by two dentists these truly ‘Remarkable Mints’ actually protect your teeth from decay, stops harmful bacteria from building up in the mouth and actually repairs the teeth on the go.
The unique formula includes green tea extract, calcium phosphate, xylitol and natural peppermint oil which actively repairs your teeth, while you enjoy the refreshing taste.
Dr. Heff’s mints have been successfully tested in scientific studies at the Dental School of the University of Illinois, the University of Zurich and the University of Birmingham to prove they are truly effective in combating tooth decay. They are also endorsed by Toothfriendly International.
These extraordinary mints reduce the acidity levels in your mouth more quickly by increasing the production of saliva, creating the right conditions for remineralisation to occur.
Secondly, the use of calcium phosphate in these mints helps to provide the calcium and phosphate ‘building blocks’ that repair your teeth during remineralisation.
Thirdly, the use of a specific green tea extract helps to preserve the collagen structure of your tooth, strengthening the ‘scaffolding’ that provides the structure for remineralisation to take place.
This three stage protection and repair process led to researchers at the University of Illinois stating that Dr. Heff’s Remarkable Mints created a significant reduction in the decay of the tooth samples.
These really are the mints your dentist would love you to try!
Each pack contains 19.8g of mints (30 mints)
The creators of these ‘Remarkable Mints’ are two practicing dentists – Dr Heffernan and Dr Toby Edwards-Lunn.
As frontline dentists, they could see the damage our diets and lifestyles were having on our teeth.
The dentistry profession is often focussed on curing ills, rather than preventing them from occurring in the first place, and this is what set Mike and Toby off on their journey.
They took four years to develop the mints, and say that they could especially benefit those who are at risk of the root decay that occurs when gums recede, exposing the root, which lacks a tough, protective covering.
“As dentists, we believe that prevention is key to having clean, healthy teeth. Our message is that everyone’s dental health is ultimately in their own hands.
“This is why we invented Dr. Heff’s Remarkable Mints: to help you take better care of your teeth throughout the day, save money on expensive dental treatments and enjoy the feeling of having fresh breath and a happy, healthy mouth.”
Dr Heff’s ‘Remarkable Mints’ are remarkable because they are the only mint scientifically proven to reverse tooth decay and tooth erosion.
As the World Health Organisation points out, oral health is a key indicator of overall health, well-being and quality of life.
The Global Burden of Disease Study 2017 estimated that oral diseases affect 3.5 BILLION people worldwide, with untreated dental caries being among the most prevalent non-communicable diseases around.
According to the International Agency for Research on Cancer, the incidence of oral cancer was within the top three of all cancers in many regions around the world.
There is also a proven relationship between oral and general health, including diabetes and conditions like obesity and Alzheimer’s.
Both were adamant that the product had to be made of only natural ingredients – and had to be effective in other areas too (eg freshens breath).
Anyone can take them over the age of 3 years. Consumer research conducted by Dr Heff’s has found consistently high levels of appeal by consumers of ALL demographics.
While anyone can take them (and everyone should!) there are certain groups of people who may find the benefits even greater than everyone else.
Those who travel a lot and don’t have the chance to regularly brush their teeth after meals, anyone who has existing mouth or tooth infections and those of an older generation whose gums may be receding… all will benefit significantly.
The major health benefits are as follows;
Green Tea: Green tea extract protects collagen, which is an essential part of your teeth. Scientists have discovered that a component of green tea called epigallocatechin gallate (eGCG) protects your teeth by inhibiting the enzymes that break down collagen.
Green tea extract also has antimicrobial properties which help to combat bad breath. For Dr. Heff’s mints, a green tea extract is used that contains no caffeine, so everyone can enjoy its health benefits.
Xylitol: Xylitol is a natural sweetener found in fruits and vegetables. Your teeth rely on essential minerals and when they lose them, it can be the first sign of decay. Luckily, in the early stages of decay, these minerals can be replaced and the tooth repaired in a process called ‘remineralisation’.
These mints use xylitol instead of sugar to help remineralise your teeth. Xylitol also neutralises plaque acids, making it harder for harmful bacteria to stick to your teeth.
Calcium Phosphate: Calcium and phosphate are important parts of the building blocks from which your teeth and bones are built. As the surface of your teeth is attacked by bacteria, the calcium and phosphate building blocks are stripped away.
That’s why calcium phosphate is included in this unique formula. It helps to repair teeth that have been damaged by tooth decay through the amazing process called remineralisation.
Natural Peppermint Oil: Whilst Xylitol is an excellent base ingredient for Dr. Heff’s Remarkable Mints because it is naturally sweet, helping the mints to taste great. However, it was felt that, on its own, even xylitol doesn’t do enough to protect your teeth.
So this unique formula combines xylitol with natural peppermint oil. In this way, Dr. Heff’s Remarkable Mints use peppermint oil to tackle bad breath – and to keep your mouth feeling minty and fresh throughout the day.
