구강세정제에 함유된 산은 치아의 법랑질을 부식시켜
치아가 매우 시리게 된다

최근에 발표된 한 연구에 따르면 시중에서 판매되고 있는 구강세정제와 관련하여
놀라운 사실을 밝혀주고 있습니다. 당신은 시중에서 판매되고있는 구강세정제의
90% 이상이 식초와 비교될 정도의 산을 함유하고 있는 사실을 알고 계셨습니까 ?

식초로 입안을 헹구는 것을 상상할 수 있습니까 ? 그 맛이 어떨것인지까지 말씀드릴
필요야 없겠지만 이것이 치아에 어떤 영향을 줄지를 잠시 생각해보십시요 !

치아의 법랑질은 인체가 생산할 수 있는 가장 단단한 물질 중의 하나입니다. 반면에
산은 가장 부식력이 높은 자연 물질입니다. 아래에 인용된 연구보고서는 2001년
4월에 보고된 것으로 높은 농도의 산을 함유한 구강세정제로 입안을 헹구게 되면
치아의 법랑질이 급격히 손실되는 것을 보여주고 있습니다.

법랑질의 손실은 치아가 시린 것과 직접적인 상관관계가 있으며 치아의 법랑질이
부족한 사람들은 뜨거운 것과 찬 것에 치아가 훨씬 더 예민하게 시린 것을 느낌을
호소합니다.

아래 표에서 보듯이 시판되고 있는 거의 모든 구강세정제가 높은 산성을 띄고
있습니다. 하지만 TheraBreath 는 실제로 '제산성(산을 중화시키는)' 구강세정제
입니다 !

보고서의 조언 : 비산성 구강세정제를 사용하라.


건투를 빕니다,

The erosive effects of some mouthrinses on enamel. A study in situ.

BACKGROUND: There are both anecdotal clinical and laboratory experimental
ata suggesting that low pH mouthrinses cause dental erosion. This evidence is
particularly relevant to acidified sodium chlorite (ASC) formulations since they
have plaque inhibitory properties comparable to chlorhexidine but without
the well known local side effects.

AIM: Studies in situ and in vitro were planned to measure enamel erosion
by low pH mouthrinses. The study in situ measured enamel erosion by ASC,
essential oil and hexetidine mouthrinses over 15-day study periods. The study
was a 5 treatment, single blind cross over design involving 15 healthy subjects
using orange juice, as a drink, and water, as a rinse, as positive and negative
controls respectively. 2 enamel specimens from unerupted human third molar
teeth were placed in the palatal area of upper removable acrylic appliances
which were worn from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday to Friday for 3 weeks. Rinses
were used 2x daily and 250 ml volumes of orange juice were imbibed 4x daily.
Enamel loss was determined by profilometry on days 5, 10 and 15. The study
in vitro involved immersing specimens in the 4 test solutions together with a
reduced acid ASC formulation for a period of 4 h under constant stirring;
Enamel loss was measured by profilometry every hour.

RESULTS: Enamel loss was in situ progressive over time with the 3 rinses
and orange juice but negligible with water. ASC produced similar erosion
to orange juice and significantly more than the two proprietary rinses and
water. The essential oil and hexetidine rinses produced similar erosion and
significantly more than water. Enamel loss in vitro was progressive over time,
and the order from low to high erosion was reduced acid ASC, ASC, Essential
oil, and hexetidine mouthrinses and orange juice.

CONCLUSION: Based on the study in situ, it is recommended that low pH
mouthrinses should not be considered for long term or continuous use and
never as pre-brushing rinses. In view of the plaque inhibitory efficacy of ASC,
short- to medium-term applications similar to those of chlorhexidine would be
envisaged.
