A Low Oral pH is the Main Driving Force in the Development of Tooth Decay which to this Day Remains the Most Prevalent Disease in Adults and Children

Unlike other oral care products, sugar free BasicBites takes a multi-pronged microbiome approach to boost enamel health. Just two BasicBites a day nurtures and activates pH-raising oral bacteria, provides immediate and sustained neutralization of plaque acids, and supports remineralization and healthy pH-balanced microbial ecosystems on tooth surfaces.

Learn more about our breakthrough Microbiome Technology developed and tested by world renowned dental school scientists.

BasicBites Soft Chews –
Boosting enamel health by Unleashing the Power of the Oral Microbiome

Delicious sugar free BasicBites soft chews coat and replenish teeth with our breakthrough arginine bicarbonate, calcium carbonate microbiome technology. Just two BasicBites a day nourish and activate pH-raising commensal bacteria that are essential for enamel health. This prebiotic, postbiotic process provides immediate and sustained neutralization of plaque acids, creates an optimal oral environment that supports remineralization and a pH-balanced microbial ecosystem that favors oral homeostasis. This revolutionary microbiome enamel protecting technology was developed, tested and validated by world renowned dental school scientists who discovered the natural interaction between saliva and the oral microbiome.

Unlocking the Power of the Oral Microbiome

Delicious BasicBites boosts enamel health by coating and replenishing teeth with our nature inspired arginine bicarbonate, calcium carbonate prebiotic, postbiotic technology. The oral microbiome is a community of billions of bacteria and there are hundreds of species in the mouth. World renowned researchers in the Department of Oral Biology and Pathology at Stony Brook University School of Dental Medicine discovered beneficial pH-raising bacteria that coexist with the harmful acid generating bacteria in microbial ecosystems on tooth surfaces.

Arginine, an amino acid naturally found in saliva, was isolated as a key substrate that nurtures these protective or commensal arginolytic pH-raising bacteria– a prebiotic process.

When the beneficial bacteria breakdown arginine, they generate alkali (base) as a byproduct– a postbiotic process. These buffers provide immediate and sustained neutralization of harmful plaque acids that helps inhibit tooth demineralization. This postbiotic process also helps create a sustained pH balanced microbial ecosystem that favors oral homeostasis.

Conclusion: Evaluation in this study demonstrated that BasicBites, in contrast to its control, is a powerful oral care product that helps maintain healthy teeth by sustaining dental plaque pH levels at or near neutrality even after the introduction of sugar.

Maintaining Oral Homeostasis

By mimicking the protective benefits of saliva, BasicBites also contains calcium, bicarbonate and carbonate. When teeth are in an optimal neutral or alkaline pH environment, the calcium in BasicBites is available to enrich teeth and support the remineralization process. Bicarbonate and carbonate provide additional buffering and help support the acid neutralizing activity of arginine.

As an added benefit, delicious sugar free BasicBites also contain Maltitol Syrup and Xylitol. These sugar alcohols are excellent sweeteners as they are not considered fermentable by acidogenic oral bacteria and could have other tooth supporting benefits.

BasicBites do not kill bacteria or add new living microbes which may never adapt to the oral microbial ecosystem. Simply put, BasicBites provides extra enamel support by activating the mouth’s defenses the way nature intended and is backed by decades of research.

What Your Colleagues Are Saying About BasicBites

Updated headshot

“Through my personal experience with Sjögren’s Syndrome coupled with my dental hygiene background, I have become an expert on dry mouth (xerostomia) and methods to address its symptoms. BasicBites are a great and delicious tool to combat the effects dry mouth can have on your oral pH and your teeth. That’s why I use BasicBites as a part of my daily routine.” Brooke Crouch, RDH

Brooke Crouch is a registered dental hygienist, published author, national speaker, consultant, and Sjögren’s patient. She is the founder of Brooke Crouch Dental Consulting LLC.



“I really love BasicBites and can’t spread the word enough. BasicBites are the perfect product to simplify the critical task of balancing the oral pH environment. BasicBites contain the vital tooth protecting nutrients, arginine, calcium carbonate and bicarbonate, making this the perfect product of choice.” Sarah Clark, RDH, IPDH

Sarah Clark, RDH, IPDH is a clinician, past President the Maine Dental Hygienists’ Association, speaker, published author, adjunct clinical faculty member at Coastal Carolina Community College.


“Harmful microbes thrive in an acidic environment. Chewing BasicBites twice a day boosts the oral pH to neutral and creates a hostile environment for the acid trouble makers.” Anne Nugent Guignon, RDH, MPH, CSP

Anne Nugent Guignon, RDH, MPH, CSP is a highly sought-after international speaker, prolific author, and RDH Magazine feature writer. She is a recognized expert on the oral microbiome, ergonomics, salivary dysfunction, cariology and erosive tooth wear, and employment law.



“BasicBites saved my son’s teeth. Not only are they seriously delicious, but they work! The cutting edge science keeps the oral cavity’s pH healthy while coating the teeth with tooth supporting nutrients that help keep your mouth happy and healthy!” Shannon Nanne, RDH
