Fast food, alcohol and fizzy drinks; it’s fair to say our modern day diets are not always conducive to healthy teeth. In fact, tooth decay is the most common health condition in the world today, affecting an estimated 3.5 billion people.
But what if we told you there was a simple solution, coming in the form of a small packet of mints?
Dr.Heff’s Remarkable Mints, described as “an oral health supplement developed by dentists” are clinically proven to reverse tooth decay. The company’s mission statement is clear: “we want to help you take better care of your teeth throughout the day, save money on expensive dental treatments and enjoy the feeling of having fresh breath and a happy, healthy mouth.”
This amazing new product was developed by two highly qualified UK dentists, Dr Mike Hefferman who runs a practice in Brighton and Dr.Toby Edwards-Lunn who runs a practice in Eastbourne, and could revolutionise everyday oral health for millions of people worldwide – a pack of 30 mints costs just £3.49.
“The thing is, dentistry today is all about ‘cure’”, the company’s Managing Director, Tom Fender says. “Whilst working in their practices, Dr.Mike and Dr.Toby realised that they were seeing so many people with the same issues, day in day out, and most of the time the problem would have something to do with tooth decay.”
“So around about 6 years ago, they started to think about how tooth decay could be prevented and decided to invest a lot of time and money in developing a product that could combat it.”
The result of their hard work was a mint containing a unique blend of collagen protecting green tea extract, remineralising calcium phosphate and xylitol, and bad-breath tackling natural peppermint oil. Together, these ingredients have the power to repair your teeth and keep your mouth healthy.
But don’t just take their word for it, the mints have been rigorously tested in 3 university laboratories across the world, where scientists confirmed that Dr.Heff’s mints do exactly what they say on the tin. The mints also come endorsed by Toothfriendly International, the global non-profit organisation dedicated to improving oral health.
The team at Brighton Journal was very impressed with the mints sample we were sent. The packaging is stylish and appealing, featuring a resealable top to help keep your mints extra fresh. The subtle peppermint flavour tastes great too, and when you take into account all the health benefits, this really is a product to get excited about.
“Maintaining a good level of oral hygiene is so important,” Tom says, “because oral health is so closely linked to overall health – it can help ward off so many medical disorders. As well as repairing your teeth, our mints clean your whole mouth out. Most people like to have one after they eat, but really you can take them as often as you like.”
Tom tells me Dr.Heff’s is committed to being a “high values company that is a force for good”, and as such will not be rushing into contracts with large supermarkets who might put pressure on the company to compromise these values at this early stage of their development. As such, you’ll be more likely to find the mints being sold at your local pharmacist or dental surgery rather than Sainsburys or Tesco. They can also be ordered directly from the company’s website.
