What can cause tooth sensitivity?
Tooth sensitivity is due to the exposure of dentin, a physiologically sensitive supporting structure, because it contains tubules that contain nerve fibers. Dentin is normally covered by enamel and the gum, therefore it is not in contact with the oral environment. Due to abrasive traumatic factors (incorrect brushing), erosion (acidic substances in contact with the teeth) or disease (periodontal disease), dentin is no longer covered by enamel, or the gum at root level, and responds with pain in various types of stimuli (thermal, chemical and tactile). Pasta del Capitano Sensitive Teeth is the specific answer for tooth sensitivity due to the presence of Kalident®, an active ingredient which helps protect against tooth demineralization and potassium nitrate, a desensitizing substance.
What action can be taken with the problem of halitosis?
Halitosis or bad breath is a phenomenon associated with an alteration of normal oral bacterial flora that grows mainly in dental plaque, the gums and tongue. Substances that give the typical bad smell of halitosis are sulfur compounds which originate from food residues, a target for the bacteria in the plaque. You can keep your breath fresh by avoiding certain types of food and refraining from smoking, but the most important measure to be taken is choosing the right products and maintaining proper daily oral hygiene. Pasta del Capitano Fresh Breath is a great ally to combat the problems of halitosis due to the presence of lactate and Zinc Citrate and Parsley and Basil extracts in the formula which help prevent plaque and neutralize bad odors.
