- What is Teeth Serum?
Dr Hisham’s Teeth Serums are a safe and healthy alternative to traditional toothpastes, made from all natural food-grade ingredients. These sophisticated non-toothpaste serums provide organic prebiotics that help to establish a positive balance of good bacteria in the mouth and protect the teeth and gums. The food-grade ingredients have been selected to create a healthy alkaline oral balance, promoting stronger teeth and gums.
Teeth serum is very effective in breaking down plaque, removing bad breath and encouraging good oral health. The serums are entirely colour-free to prevent staining your natural tooth colour and a healthy oral alkaline balance is instilled with every use.
- Why Dr Hisham’s Teeth Serum is NOT a Toothpaste
Dr Hisham’s oral care system is the first of its kind. While traditional toothpastes contain irritants, toxins, abrasives and detergents, the Dr Hisham’s range champions holistic oral care and overall human health.
Developed by leading laser cosmetic dental surgeon, Dr Hisham Abdalla, the Dr Hisham’s teeth serum was created as an oral care supplement that really cleans the teeth and gums, while also nurturing and protecting the mouth and oral microbiome.
Western societies are now beginning to grasp the dire consequences of the unpronounceable ingredients hidden in our food supply. And our morning and evening brushing routine is not exempt from this issue. The Global Burden of Disease Study 2019 estimated that oral diseases affect 3.5 billion people worldwide. Why? In the age of technological innovation and advanced medicines, we continue to struggle with basic bodily care and upkeep. Highly processed, hyper-palatable foods that are often loaded with sugar do not help the situation. This led Dr Hisham and his team to develop a new paradigm in oral care, via the natural and nurturing Dr Hisham’s teeth serum.
- Harmful detergents and abrasives
We have become accustomed to incredible chemical features such as foam, lather, shine and buff, and we deem this as “effective”. But, to what cost? Ultimately our health, and the health of our environment.
Triclosan (TCS) is an anti-microbial chemical found in various consumer products, including conventional soaps, hand sanitisers, toothpaste, and mouthwash. Numerous studies have raised concerns citing negative human health effects. Debates centred around whether this chemical is fuelling antibiotic resistance is rife. Marvin M. Lipman, M.D., Consumer Reports chief medical advisor, suggests: “there is evidence that exposure to triclosan interferes with the production and activity of hormones in the body, which could contribute to infertility, early puberty, obesity, and other problems,”. In response to the rising efforts against this triclosan, in September 2017, the Food and Drug Administration effectively banned TCS in the sale of antibacterial soaps and body washes after manufacturers failed to prove that the products’ active ingredients were safe and effective. This rule failed to ban its use in hand “sanitisers” or wipes or antibacterial products used in health care settings (including toothpaste and mouth wash).
Long-time exposure to harmful agents: detergents, surfactants, harsh abrasives, dangerous ingredients (triclosan, sodium lauryl sulphate (SLS), propylene glycol, artificial sweeteners, diethanolamine (DEA) parabens, plus many more, can lead to:
- Sensitive gums
- Damage to irreplaceable tooth enamel
- Demineralisation of teeth leading to a chalky-feel and spotty cosmetic damage
- Chronic toxicity (carcinogenic)
- Organ toxicity (heart, liver, lungs and brain, and causes damage), and
- Aquatic environmental toxicity.
- “Natural flavours” that aren’t always natural
Additionally, the cost of natural flavouring for your morning minty fresh breath may come with steep consequences. Conscious consumers are shying away from potentially harmful “flavourings and preservatives” and opting for “natural favours”. But, did you know, flavour manufacturers do not have to disclose their ingredients? They freely add synthetic solvents, preservatives, emulsifiers, carriers and other additives to a flavour that qualifies as “natural” under current regulations. In addition to flavours themselves, these mixtures can contain over 100 harmful chemicals* that have other functions. Alarmingly, solvents, emulsifiers, flavour modifiers and preservatives often make up 80 to 90 per cent of the mixture.
Dangerous chemical cocktails threaten healthy, normal oral regulation, and the drying effects of the petroleum-based chemicals may contribute to the problem. Saliva is necessary to moisten the mouth, neutralise acids produced by plaque, and wash away dead cells that accumulate on the tongue, gums, and cheeks. If not removed, these cells decompose and can cause bad breath.
- “Natural toothpastes” may not be much better
There are also a lot of so-called “natural” toothpastes out there that claim to clean your mouth, but at the expense of adding all these toxic irritants and chemicals that are not good for anything inside your mouth or your microbiome.
- “Health begins in the mouth”
What if oral care products were actually health supplements, physiologically protecting you and naturally nutritional to your body and your symbiotic microbiome? How can they be safe for us and our ecosystem, rather than detergents, abrasives, irritants, toxins and environmental hazards?
The oral microbiome seeds and feeds the gut microbiome.
Dr Hisham’s teeth serum lets you and your customers revel in self-care. Contains no nasty petroleum-based chemicals, artificial (or natural) flavourings or preservatives. Instead, Dr Hisham’s teeth serum feeds nurturing minerals that adhere to the mucosal tissues and supports vibrant populations of good bacteria. Goodbye, bad breath — hello, healthy mouth ecosystem!
It is a common misconception that teeth are the most essential part of the mouth. But, in reality, the gums, throat, and entire ecosystem plays an equally significant role in our health. Dr Hisham’s oral care system strives to:
- Support healthy oral microbiome
- Stimulate salivary glands
- Support metabolic signalling, and
- Stimulate mitochondria (energy-producing cells).
