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
Finally – a dental laser “Made in Germany” that combines mobility and professionalism!

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.
