Referring to other toothpastes
'...after around only 100 minutes the amount of fluoride that remains is below therapeutic levels'.
'A further drawback is that high concentrations of fluoride form calcium fluoride (also known as fluorite) instead of fluorapatite, which is what is required for effective remineralisation.'
Referring to BioMinF
'Because the fluoride in BiominF is incorporated within the structure of the glass, it is delivered gradually as the glass dissolves, and therefore a lower concentration (approximately equivalent to 500ppm) is required, yet is actually more effective'.
...the fluoride contained within the glass structure of Biomin F is released slowly over around 12 hours and is therefore used more effectively'.
