Selective Microbial Metabolism Regulation Technology (SMMRT)®
Selective Microbial Metabolism Regulation Technology (SMMRT)® – To combat the carbohydrate-driven, microbial-dependent process to rehabilitate oral dysbiosis (bacterial imbalance), it is necessary to leverage an understanding of the importance of carbohydrate metabolic pathways, which gave way to the development of SMMRT® since 2008. This unique approach focuses on using metabolic influencers (nutrients) to re-engineer disease-causing bacterial biofilms into those that are health-promoting. The purpose being to decrease inflammation and to improve outcomes.
SMMRT® uses clinically-validated molecular nutrition to put oral bacteria on a Keto diet (switching them from eating carbohydrates and sugars to proteins and amino acids) – specifically designed to:
selectively favor the growth of beneficial microbes in the mouth (including under the gumline) and
to stop the growth of destructive bacteria and their toxic, smelly by-products that cause dental disease.
Because IT WORKS.
TEEF! is different from other dental care products. It empowers good bacteria + out-competes the bad bacteria for a naturally-balanced, healthier mouth.
Dr. Emily Stein, is a bacteria whisperer. She earned her PhD in microbiology at UC Berkeley and pursued a fellowship in Immunology and Rheumatology at Stanford University. In short, she's a super-geek with a unique understanding of how harmful oral bacteria can cause countless health issues in both humans and animals if not managed properly. .
She used that expertise to find a simple solution that improved the quality of life for her own dog (and all dogs) through better dental health. After screening hundreds of human-grade ingredients, she found a combination that naturally influences bacteria toward more health promoting behaviours that protect against decay and ease gum inflammation.
