Hello,

please could you tell me where the glycerin R.O.C.S. use, is derived from? (17. 05.17, Julia)

Hello,

Thank You for Your question.

The glycerin comes from a plant source.


Hi!

1) My question is how to best use your remineralizing gel for the treatment of white spot lesions (as a result of caries - not fluorosis): how many times a day, for how long, by brushing or with a mouth tray and so on - any tip that can help.

 

2) Another question concerns fluoride toothpastes: is it OK/advisable to use them during the gel treatment period or better avoid them until after the treatment (as I think I read somewhere but am not exactly sure)?

 

3) And finally, would it be fine to apply the gel to the teeth with a brush and THEN put a mouth tray on to avoid swallowing the gel before time (as opposed to putting the gel inside the tray and inserting in the mouth)? Will there be any difference in effectiveness? Thank you. (05.02.17, Sergei)

Dear Sergei,


1. The remineralization gel as a treatment for dental fluorosis should start being applied after professional hygiene procedure including microabrasion of tooth stains. The gel should be applied once a day, it can be put on in any convenient manner, after applying the gel it is advised to use mouthguard to screen the gel from being washed off with saliva. The gel may be used on a daily basis for one year.


2. During the remineralization course we advise to use toothpastes without fluorine, and further on it is also better not to use these products, toothpastes with minerals would be the adequate choice.


3. First, apply the gel, and then screen the teeth with mouthguard to protect the gel from being washed off with saliva.

Hello, I have had some white spots and also yellow plaque on my teeth for a couple of years now. I wanted to know if You have a toothpaste that would help? (09.08.16, Amanda)

first of all You should visit a dentist in order to determine the nature of white dots, as it can be either fluorosis or dental caries in the stage of white spot.

Hello, I have a question about the remineralizing medical gel, which I have just ordered and received. I am using it for enamel remineralization, as my enamel is becoming transparent (greyish). How long should I use the gel in order to see results? On your website it says 2-4 weeks, but on the notice it says up to 4 months for enamel problems. Please let me know if it's safe and recommended to use the product for more than 4 weeks if I don't see results. In addition, it says on the notice that one should leave the gel for 15 minutes, but it also says not to rinse. So does it mean that one should apply the gel and not rinse it at all? Also, is it recommended to apply the gel before going to bed and leave it for all night? Please let me know. (27.01.16, Aicha)

 

Hygienist:
After consulting with our scientists we are glad to inform you that it is safe to use the remineralizing medical gel for more than a month. There is no need to rinse after using the gel, thus before going to bed is the perfect time for applying it.


What is the difference between Sensation Whitening and Magic Whitening? Are they both for daily use or only for a prescribed amount of time? Thank you. (13.12.15, Mark)

 

Hygienist:
The difference between Sensation Whitening and Magic Whitening is in the colour of granules and flavouring composition. Like any whitening toothpastes these should be alternated with toothpaste for regular daily oral care.


Is R.O.C.S. mineral gel only meant to be used at night? Can I use it in the morning or in the afternoon? Can I use R.O.C.S. mineral gel throughout the year? Can it stop tooth decay? (04.12.15, Anna)

 

Hygienist:
R.O.C.S. mineral gel can be used at any time of the day, whenever suits you best. It can be used throughout the year, however the standard recommended approach is 2 weeks of usage followed by a 6 months pause. The gel helps to reduce the risk of carious and non-carious lesions of dental hard tissues.

Hi! On the sensitive teeth toothpaste, recommended use is stated to be 4 weeks. Would I put myself in danger using this product all year long? I very much prefer the taste and mouthfeel, and would very much rather use this product all the time. Would you advice against doing so? (31.03.15, Dan S.)


Hygienist:

Hello! Our toothpaste Mango and Banana for sensitive teeth contains a special component that reduces painful sensitivity (for hot, cold and sour). If after a month of use this painful sensitivity does not pass - this is a sign of more serious problems in the oral cavity. In this case we recommend you to consult the dentist. That's why we recommend not to use this toothpaste all the time and take a break after one month.


 

Good afternoon! I would like to know if your products contain Glycerin?

(08.10.12, André Noack)

 

Hygienist:

Good afternoon and thank you for your question! Yes, the products can contain Glycerin because it is a classic humectant. However, in some cases Glycerin can be replaced by Sorbitol.


 

Hello! My child is 7 years and 6 months old. What kind of toothpaste should I choose: from 4 to 7 years or from 8 to 18 years? The enamel is weak and not formed yet. With or without fluoride? Thank you. (Lily)

Hi Lily! Your child can safely use Teens toothpaste from 8 to 18, that includes amino-fluoride formula and does not only strengthens the weak enamel, but also forms a protective film on its surface to protect it!



Do ROCS toothpastes contain fluoride? (Hermann Spraul)

 

Hygienist:

No, ROCS toothpastes for adults do not contain fluoride.


Good afternoon! I am pregnant, and I use ROCS Mouthwash Double Mint. Please advice, if it is safe to use it during pregnancy? (Veronica)


Hygienist:

Hello, Veronica! It is not only safe but very useful to use ROCS Mouthwash Double Mint, because it includes Laminaria extract, which has anti-inflammatory and wound-healing properties. Minerals and xylitol saturate the hard tissues of teeth, increase their resistance; mouthwashes do not contain alcohol, sodium lauryl sulfate, antiseptics, and fluoride (this is especially important for people living in areas of excess fluoride in the water).
