nenedent®-baby toothpaste with fluoride provides your baby’s little teeth with effective all-round protection from caries and is especially gentle.
It contains 500 ppm sodium fluoride to reinforce the dental enamel, xylitol (13%) that has a proven caries-inhibiting effect, and a silica-gel abrasive with an especially mild abrasion value (RDA approx. 25) for the dental enamel of the freshly emerged little milk teeth that have not yet fully hardened. It further has a neutral pH value to protect the baby’s oral mucous membrane and can also be used during homoeopathic treatment as it does not contain any menthol or other essential oils at all.
Each tube of nenedent®-baby toothpaste additionally comes with a practical thimble toothbrush made of silicone. This thimble can be used to care for your baby’s teeth and, at the same time, gently massage the inflamed gums. By doing so, you can provide natural assistance for the eruption of further teeth.

Fluorides are mineral salts of the element fluorine and count as trace elements. They occur in nature in the form of numerous minerals, for example in water and foodstuffs. In the human body, they are needed to build up teeth and bones. Fluorides are employed in dental medicine to prevent caries. For this, their remineralising effect is used to reinforce the durability of the dental enamel.
In terms of taste, xylitol is very similar to household sugar and has virtually the same sweetness. When eaten, it brings about a cooling effect in the mouth as warmth is removed from its surroundings when it comes into contact with saliva. Various varieties of fruit and vegetables act as natural sources of xylitol, but it also occurs in larger quantities in birch bark. The caries-inhibiting effect of xylitol was discovered in the 1970s. It was proven to bring about a significant reduction in caries. In addition, xylitol stimulates saliva production and promotes remineralisation of the substance of the teeth.
Silica gel or silicic acid occurs in nature as opal and in the cell walls of rock algae. In toothcare products, it is used as a mineral abrasive for gentle and thorough cleaning.
