ROSLYN HEIGHTS, N.Y., July 14, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Ortek Therapeutics, Inc. announced today that their BasicBites® soft chews were named a Top 100 product for 2015 by Dentistry Today, the nation's leading clinical news magazine for dentists. This award was based on the reader response of dental professionals.

Delicious BasicBites are breakthrough, sugar free, chocolate flavored soft chews that bathe teeth with a unique blend of nutrients that provide immediate and sustained support for maintaining enamel health. Two BasicBites a day are recommended for adults and children over six. They are essential for the millions of individuals with dry mouth and those with a sugary diet.

The revolutionary technology in BasicBites is now considered one of the biggest breakthroughs in oral care. This innovative and patented technology was developed in the Department of Oral Biology and Pathology at Stony Brook University School of Dental Medicine.

BasicBites contain vital nutrients (arginine bicarbonate and calcium carbonate) that are coordinated to nourish and support healthy teeth in several ways. Decades of research led to the discovery of beneficial bacteria living on tooth surfaces. These helpful bacteria favor and convert arginine, a common amino acid found in healthy saliva and in BasicBites, into alkali or base (buffers). This results in the immediate and sustained generation of buffers on tooth surfaces that can help keep teeth in their existing and healthy pH (acid/base) balance.

Like healthy saliva, BasicBites also contains a source of calcium. In a normal and favorable oral pH environment, calcium can return to the teeth - a process called remineralization.

Sugar free BasicBites are 20 calories each. As an added benefit, BasicBites are also an excellent source of calcium. BasicBites are available online at
