Hydroxy-what? Hydroxyapatite: The Secret Ingredient That Will Transform Your Oral Health

Hydroxy-what? Hydroxyapatite: The Secret Ingredient That Will Transform Your Oral Health

This article was updated on 1/28/2024.

Hydroxyapatite (HAp) is a relatively new ingredient that is taking traditional and holistic dentistry by storm. This powerful ingredient is naturally produced by the body and makes up 97% of the calcium found in your enamel.

So, if you want to have strong, healthy enamel that protects your smile from dental issues such as cavities, sensitive teeth, a yellow appearance, or even gingivitis… it only makes sense to use hydroxyapatite in your daily oral care routine! 

What is Hydroxyapatite? 

Hydroxyapatite (HAp) is an inorganic mineral present in human bone and teeth. It plays a role in the structural strength of bone and in bone regeneration.

Tooth Structure: 

Each tooth is made up of four layers, including the enamel, dentin, pulp cavity, and root canals. 

Understanding enamel is crucial for maintaining healthy teeth. Enamel is composed of tightly packed oblong crystals, approximately 1,000 times smaller in width than a human hair. These small crystallites are primarily made up of hydroxyapatite, a mineral based on calcium and phosphate. Additionally, enamel includes other elements such as magnesium, fluorine, and sodium.

Enamel serves as the protector of your teeth and your oral health. When the enamel is weakened, and plaque builds up, your tooth begins to decay. When the tooth begins to decay, your mouth becomes threatened by cavities and other dental illnesses. 

Understanding How Cavities And Other Dental Issues Form

Cavities are typically caused by a mineral deficiency in the mouth. This means there is a lack of minerals present in the mouth, leading to weakened enamel due to an excess build-up of acid. This condition eventually progresses to tooth decay and the formation of cavities.


Various factors contribute to the development of cavities and other dental problems, including your diet, the pH level of your saliva, and your dental hygiene practices.

Understanding the significance of enamel and the role of minerals in tooth structure emphasizes the importance of incorporating Hydroxyapatite (HAp) into your dental routine.

Brushing With Hydroxyapatite

Brushing with hydroxyapatite is a game-changer for your oral health. Not only does it play a vital role in preserving and, in many cases, reversing dental issues such as cavities, but it also offers a range of additional benefits.

These benefits include remineralization, strengthening enamel, and restoring the natural whiteness of your teeth. When you brush with hydroxyapatite, your teeth retain the essential minerals they're made of, promoting remineralization and fortifying enamel with the nutrients it needs.

The result? Whiter and stronger teeth. Ever seen someone with seemingly white teeth but a brittle appearance? This often indicates sensitivity and susceptibility to cavities. Remember, how you treat your enamel doesn't just impact your teeth—it influences your overall well-being.

How Primal Life Uses Hydroxyapatite

While fluoride has long been touted as a cavity-preventing superhero in toothpaste, recent studies challenge its effectiveness, showing it prevents only a mere 33% of cavities, far from the 100% prevention deemed achievable by the ADA.

In addition to leading to 90% of the population suffering from cavities, fluoride is also a proven neurotoxin that poses a potential threat to your body. Once fluoride enters your system, it immediately disrupts your natural biochemistry in significant ways. 

Our solution? Nano-hydroxyapatite.

Unlike fluoride, nano-hydroxyapatite is completely safe, as it is a mineral that naturally occurs in your teeth. It operates at a molecular level, ensuring absorption by your tooth's enamel. It's a game-changer because your enamel comprises tiny crystallites of Hydroxyapatite.

Why did we opt for nano-hydroxyapatite? The answer lies in the details – size matters when it comes to remineralizing your teeth effectively. Unlike some other natural toothpaste brands that use hydroxyapatite, we specifically chose the nano-sized variant.

Why does this matter? Because nano-hydroxyapatite operates at a molecular level, mirroring the tiny crystallites that compose your tooth's enamel. This precise mimicry ensures optimal absorption, reaching where it matters most.

But the story doesn't end there. Maximizing the effectiveness of nano-hydroxyapatite requires maintaining an alkaline oral environment. Our products, featuring aluminum-free baking soda, act as a green light, not only supporting remineralization but also signaling our commitment to fostering an oral alkaline environment.
