What is Hydroxyapatite Tooth Powder?


Have you ever heard of hydroxyapatite tooth powder

If not, it’s time that you have!

Hydroxyapatite tooth powder is a natural and effective way to keep your teeth and gums healthy WITHOUT fluoride or other harmful dental materials. Not only is it made with found-in-your-teeth substances… 

…but it also helps remove plaque and bacteria and keep your teeth squeaky clean, while naturally whitening your teeth.

This article will explain what hydroxyapatite tooth powder is, how it works, and why you should consider using it for optimal dental health.

What Is Hydroxyapatite Tooth Powder and How Does It Work?

Hydroxyapatite tooth powder is a natural tooth cleaner composed of powerful minerals and substances that are naturally found in tooth enamel, such as calcium and phosphate, combined with other natural ingredients. 

It is a replacement for toothpaste…  

It works by removing plaque and bacteria from the surface of the teeth and filling in any demineralized areas or weak spots.  It ALSO helps to lower levels of acidity in the mouth which leads to a lower risk of cavities.  

When used on the teeth, it coats each tooth with a layer of protective minerals that help prevent tooth decay and gum disease. Hydroxyapatite tooth powder is also highly absorbent…

…which means it is able to penetrate the enamel on your teeth more effectively than other products…

…and as a result, it can help your teeth remineralize and reverse tooth decay.

What is Hydroxyapatite?

Hydroxyapatite is a natural mineral that occurs widely in nature and is the major component of tooth enamel and the mineral part of bone.

Synthetic hydroxyapatite has been developed to be used in dental applications such as implants, fillings, crowns, and restorations for years. This hydroxyapatite is very small and can fill in pores and weak spots in the tooth. 

Our hydroxyapatite tooth powder uses a particle slightly larger than a nanoparticle… 

…which brings all the benefits of remineralization –  without the concern of nanoparticles!  

Using a toothpowder with hydroxyapatite leads to a slippery, easy to clean surface on the tooth that the gums attach to naturally, but the bacteria slide right off.

The Advantages of Using Hydroxyapatite Tooth Powder

A major advantage of hydroxyapatite tooth powder is that it protects the teeth from dental decay and remineralizes the teeth without the use of fluoride

Its ingredients are natural and are a healthier alternative to fluoride toothpastes. 

The body recognizes hydroxyapatite so there are no concerns about chemical sensitivity or reactions elsewhere in the body. 

The Science Behind Hydroxyapatite Tooth Powder

Research has demonstrated that hydroxyapatite helps reduce acidity levels in the mouth, which can help lower risk of tooth decay and gum disease. 

In addition to its absorbent nature, hydroxyapatite is also believed to have antibacterial properties due to its slightly acidic makeup…

This ensures that any plaque or bacteria left behind after brushing will be quickly dealt with by the tooth powder’s active ingredients. 

Additionally, using hydroxyapatite can help remineralize damaged teeth surfaces by providing necessary minerals for healthy enamel formation and repair.

How to Use Hydroxyapatite Tooth Powder

Here are some tips for using hydroxyapatite tooth powder correctly:

  1. Start Slowly: When first using hydroxyapatite tooth powder, start with a small amount as the taste and texture can be a little different for some people. Gradually increase your use of it as you become more accustomed to its texture.


  1. Mix With Water: Make sure to mix the powder with a few drops of water before brushing your teeth in order to create a paste-like consistency that will ensure better coverage on your teeth.


  1. 3. Brush Gently: Since the powder is highly absorbent, make sure to brush gently, paying extra attention to areas between the teeth and along the gum line where plaque tends to build up most often. Also, take care not to swallow a lot of the powder as it can cause stomach discomfort if ingested in large amounts.


  1. Don’t Rinse: Take extra care to leave the hydroxyapatite on the teeth or gums for 10-15 minutes after using.  Spit the excess out but don’t rinse. 

Follow these tips and you’ll soon find yourself reaping all of the benefits that come from using hydroxyapatite tooth powder for your oral health needs!
