Moira Crawford talks to hygienists who have had astonishing results and are keen to share their experiences with colleagues.
In practice, BioMin F has been available for over a year, and hygienists in the UK and elsewhere have been astonished by the results they have seen both in their own families and their most problematic patients.
Sam Davidson, a dental hygienist who works in practices across Kent and the South East of England, has been recommending BioMin F to patients with sensitivity who have had no success with the major sensitivity brands. She trialled it first on herself, having developed sensitivity to cold air after starting whitening treatment. ‘After 14 days of using BioMin F the sensitivity had gone and I could continue with the whitening,’ she said. She then handed samples to 30 patients and all gave positive feedback. Most have continued to buy BioMin™ F.

Bio-Glass Tooth Strengthening
A while ago I was asked to do a TV advert for Sensodyne. I liked their “Repair and Protect” toothpaste because it contains a bio-glass that sticks to surface like a protective layer and helps stop tooth sensitivity. However, there is now a new toothpaste containing an even more beneficial bio-glass called Biomin.
Traditionally, to try and strengthen teeth and protect against decay with a toothpaste, fluoride is used in quite high concentrations. Most adult toothpastes have 1,450 parts per million (ppm) and one that has to be prescribed contains 5,000ppm. That’s a lot of fluoride! This is soluble fluoride so it washes away quite quickly and has to be used correctly and not swallowed.
Research shows that you benefit more from low doses of fluoride with a sustained release than from a high dose that washes away.
"It is not the amount of fluoride that counts but the length of time it is in contact with the teeth".
It's not by chance that Estelite SQ has been voted 'Best Universal Composite' by the Dental Advisor magazine for the past 9 years. Two technological breakthroughs make it so very different to other composites and give so many benefits!
Tokuyama Is Made With “Aesthetic Pearl Fillers” Where Others Are Made With “Broken Rocks”!
Supra-nano Spherical Filler is produced using the Sol-Gel method. This allows Tokuyama to grow spheres of specific translucency, colour, size and refractive index for optimal optical and physical performance.
Other composites are made from blocks of filler that are randomly ground thereby compromising the product.
RAP Accelerated Curing gives Extended Working Time with 10 second light cure!
In conventional light curing, Camphorquinone (CQ) catalyst generates one energised Monomer each reactive cycle. Tokuyama’s innovative initiator system energizes several Monomer molecules each reactive cycle. The benefit is that less CQ gives a longer working time and the ability to energise lots of Monomer with a short cure time.
The Kerator Overdenture system is a popular choice amongst clinicians as it provides improved system componentry at the point of ordering and can be placed clinically across both implant abutments & components and also into roots of endodontically treated teeth.
Kerator abutments are compatible with all implant systems* including Adin, Nobel Biocare, Starumann, 3I, Astra, Straumann, Ankylos, Biohorizon, Biolok, Bicon, Camlog, Endopore, Frialit-2 & Xive, Lifecore, Zimmer (Calcitek, Paragon, Swissplus), Uniti, Pitt-Easy, Osstem, Dentium, Dio, Dentis, Megagen, Cowell Medi, Warantec and many more.
If your implant system is not listed or you are unsure which abutment you need, please visit our Kerator abutment website and choose the relevant implant manufacturer. After selecting the implant type, the correct abutment will then be shown to you. Should your implant system not be listed, please call us on 01274 885544.
Kerator components and instruments are also available individually.
Understanding Adin Implant’s Success And Appeal
Israel has more scientists and engineers per capita than any other country in the world. A well-educated workforce available for staffing high technology enterprises such as Adin.
"The technology sector is what makes Israel’s economy so successful and the human factor is the most important link in the process of value creation”.
It is this drive for optimal performance that is the driving force behind Adin Implants. Israel has the largest implant market in the world in proportion to its population. There are 400 implants for every 10,000 people while in the United States for example, there are only 50 implants per 10,000 people.
Opposite graph illustrates that of the major brands tested by New York University, Adin proved effective. Download the full study here.
How BioMin F toothpaste provides arguably the best protection against acid erosion
Biomin F toothpaste incorporates a 5% bioactive glass, which is able to slowly release calcium, phosphate, and fluoride ions to form acid-resistant fluorapatite 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 to tooth surfaces.
The encapsulation of fluoride in a bioglass of Biomin F is a completely different delivery system to traditional
soluble fluoride toothpastes and is not subject to salivary clearance. Studies at QMUL have also identified that
when salivary fluoride concentration is above 45ppm, calcium fluorite rather than fluorapatite is precipitated

Toothpaste alone does not prevent dental erosion, new research suggests.
After analysing nine fluoridated toothpastes that are available throughout Europe, including Colgate Caries Protection and Sensodyne Rapid Relief, Swiss researchers found enamel loss still occurs to some extent despite regular brushing.
Although none of the toothpastes studied prevent dental erosion, Blend-a-Med Pro Expert and Regenerate were found to be the least effective, while Sensodyne Pronamel and Elmex Erosion Protection are no better than saliva.
We're doubling our warehouse space due to rapid growth and are building capacity to increase our product range!
The dental sector continues to evolve but it seems Trycare's message is going further afield.
Trycare CEO, Phil Mathers says, "We've been investing heavily in new technology over the past year to streamline the whole operation as well as investing in our people so they are fully aware of our cutting edge products. The record sales we're seeing is a testament that we're getting things right. The Trycare Way has been instilled in the team and new recruits tell me that everyone in the sector can see that Trycare are the ones to watch. This really pleases me because we try so hard to care for customers. I'm so proud of all my team but we're not complacent either. There's plenty more for us to do and customers will continue to feel the benefits of working with us on their bottom line. It's working. 'To rest is not to conquer' continues to be my favourite saying".
The Trycare team are handling 50% more orders than last year, so we're doubling our warehouse space! The product range is growing too so this extra space will not only allow us to take on more lines, but also to continue our growth in 2018.
"We've been investing heavily in new technology over the past year to streamline the whole operation, but the real investment we've made to produce these record sales is in our people", says Trycare CEO, Phil Mathers. The Trycare Way has been instilled throughout the team and new recruits recently joining us tell me that everyone in the sector can see it. This really pleases me because we try so hard to get things right and it seems word is now getting round. I'm so proud of all my team but there's always plenty to do. To rest is not to conquer continues to be my favourite saying".

That's the mantra of Trycare CEO, Phil Mathers taking on the 3 Yorkshire Peaks as well as his mission of preparing the company for further growth
Phil climbed the 3 Peaks in September 2016 as a personal goal and to "blow away a few cobwebs and to do it all within 12 hours - that's the famous challenge", said Phil.
"I've completed them before , but not for some time so with such lovely weather planned, I just had to seize the moment and hope I could still do it".
He was accompanied by David Robertson-Brown, Trycare's Digital Marketing Manager.
The trip was taken as Trycare makes numerous internal changes, the restructuring of teams and the creation of new systems to better compete with much larger companies.
"It was good to go and get some fresh thinking time away from the hustle and bustle of a normal working day. Everyone in the company is working so hard, dealing with customers and all doing a fantastic job. I'm so proud of them. We're challenging every way we do things, exploring lots of new innovations and simply making things better. It's a very exciting time in our history" said Phil. "And I keep thinking of the saying 'To Rest Is Not To Conquer' and this pushes me on to getting things done and to somehow getting up these mountains!", he continued.
"The photograph shows Phil on top of the trig point of Whernside, the 2nd peak & the highest point in Yorkshire!"
Trycare sponsor a team of local horse riders that raised over £1,100 for Cancer Research as part of the national "Ride For Research" Campaign
This campaign was set up to help cancer patient Karen Lane raise money for the Peter Andre cancer fund. Karen Lane, who lives in London, has been fighting bowel, liver and now lung cancer.
In total, the nationwide “Ride For Research” event which took part on Saturday 20th August, raised £71,452.
Trycare employee Joanne Hurrell, organised a team of riders to take part in the ride and Trycare were happy to be able to support her in this event. The team, named “The Pink Stampede" rode an 11km ride around the Bradford & Halifax area, and they also came 3rd in the nationwide competition for the largest ride, with a staggering 26 riders.
A Summer hamper of footcare goodies is on its way to Wendy Hilliard in Aylesbury to support her efforts in treating the feet of the homeless
Wendy, a professional podiatrist, is also a volunteer at The Vineyard Centre, Aylesbury which is part of a wider network across the UK and the world. Wendy gives up her time and expertise helping people who wouldn’t normally access NHS support and certainly not the private treatment she provides to others.
"It’s essential we don’t lose sight that we are a people-focused business"
It’s been smiles all round since the introduction of BioMinF toothpaste to the UK consumer & professional markets
BioMinF puts back the lost minerals from tooth enamel and helps prevent decay and treats sensitivity.
Thousands of tubes of the toothpaste were sold within a few weeks of launching the product in the UK and the feedback received from customers has been “overwhelmingly positive”, says Richard Whatley, CEO of Biomin Technologies Ltd.
"The potential of this toothpaste is massive"
That’s the verdict of the customer services team!
Charlie Bird, Head of Operations who oversaw the building work and manages the team said “This refit is part of a wider investment into our head office property in Bradford. Also included is the new staff canteen, training room and broadband fibre line into the property. We’ve created a much better working environment as you would expect for a modern, growing company and it seems to have got approval from everyone. It’s been a team effort with most people involved and coming up with ideas and solutions of how best to lay things out. It’s always good to have a happy team!”.
"The company is going from strength to strength with fantastic opportunities opening up to us"
