Elmex Junior Toothpaste Age 6-12 Duo
The eruption of the new permanent teeth begins at the age of six and ends at the age of about 12. The surface of the enamel of the new permanent teeth is still porous and inadequately mineralised. During their maturation process ‘secondary’ mineralisation with ions from the oral milieu takes place. They penetrate the enamel and make it more resistant to acid attack.
Long-term caries protection of new permanent teeth: Amine fluorides are rapidly distributed in the oral cavity. Owing to their surface activity and slightly acidic pH, amine fluorides promote the formation of a welladhering calcium fluoride precipitate. This supports remineralisation of the new permanent teeth by surrounding them with fluoride. It also serves as a fluoride deposit which protects the teeth against acid attack. elmex JUNIOR toothpaste with amine fluoride therefore helps to harden the enamel of the new permanent teeth and effectively protects them against caries.
Adapted fluoride content and taste: The fluoride content of 1400 ppm is adapted to the needs of new permanent teeth. elmex JUNIOR toothpaste has a pleasant mild taste, to encourage children in the age of 7 to 12 years to brush their teeth regularly.
For daily oral hygiene for children in the age of 6 to 12, to
-enhance mineralisation of the new permanent teeth
