Biomin™ F Toothpaste - Armour For Teeth
Fights tooth decay, protects enamel & combats sensitivity
BioMin™ F toothpaste incorporates a 5% bioactive glass, which is able to slowly release calcium, phosphate, and fluoride ions to form acid-resistant fluorapatite (Armour for Teeth) for up to 12 hours after brushing. It is a major breakthrough for oral care and is the result of over a decade of scientific research at Queen Mary University of London.
The very fine glass particles (5 microns average) adhere to the tooth surfaces in a similar manner to the adhesion of glass ionomers.
As Biomin™ F slowly releases an optimal level of fluoride over a long period of time, it only requires 530ppm, instead of the usual 1,450 of regular toothpastes.
10 times more resistant to acid attack 8 times longer fluoride protection Smaller particles to occlude tubules
How Biomin™ F Differs From NovaMin®
NovaMin® delivers calcium and phosphate in the bioactive glass structure to form hydroxyapatite.
BioMin™ F toothpaste incorporates calcium, phosphate and fluoride ions to form fluorapatite and this is 10 times more resistant to acid attack.
NovaMin® contains no fluoride in the glass and therefore requires the addition of a soluble fluoride in the formulation which dissolves and is therapeutically ineffective after approx. 1.5 hours.
BioMin™ F toothpaste incorporates fluoride within the bioactive glass structure and slowly releases onto the teeth surfaces for up to 12 hours after brushing.
The particle size of BioMin™ is also smaller than NovaMin® which allows greater physical occlusion of open dentine tubules and also to be less abrasive. Once the dentine tubules have been occluded, BioMin™ converts into acid resistant fluorapatite and most patients report a rapid reduction in sensitivity and improved quality of life!
