pH

A Significant Dental Caries Risk Factor

pH is a measurement of acidity. Pure water is said to be neutral with a pH 7, while solutions with a pH of less than 7 are said to be acidic; and solutions with a pH greater than 7 are said to be alkaline. Consumption of low pH acidic drinks and many general dental mouth rinses drive the oral pH down creating an environment that encourages the growth of cariogenic bacteria

All the CarFree dental health products have been specifically designed to elevate the oral pH and neutralize acid bacteria. Encourage the growth and development of a healthy non-cariogenic environment with use of the CariFree dental health products.
