Chemical active ingredients (pain relievers) in Dentinox® N gel

Dentinox® N gel contains two chemical active ingredients for pain relief: Lidocaine hydrochloride works quickly and for a short period of time whereas macrogol lauryl ether sets in with a time delay but its effects last longer. The distribution among several active ingredients makes it possible to keep the respective doses to a very low level. Even swallowing an entire tube is considered to be harmless from a medical perspective.

How do I tell whether my child is teething?

On its own, a baby can only indirectly point out that teething is about to begin. There are, however, a series of symptoms that provide an indication. The most common and most noticeable signs are red cheeks, severe dribbling, and reddened and swollen gums.

Can I give the children’s toothpaste to my baby, too?

We have developed a toothpaste with a lower abrasive value especially for babies; it is particularly gentle and is not capable of rubbing off the tooth enamel that has not yet fully hardened. For this reason, we recommend using our baby toothpastes for the first 12 months or so following the eruption of the first little teeth. Each of the five nenedent toothpastes is suitable for use over the entire milk teeth period until the age of 6.

What is the abrasive value (RDA)?

The “relative dentin abrasivity” (RDA) value states how much dentine is rubbed off in a laboratory experiment with the toothpaste in question. A higher RDA value offers a greater cleaning effect but it can also rub off the tooth enamel. The lower the RDA value, the gentler the toothpaste is on the substance of the teeth.
