DENTAL NEWS - BioMin® F first to receive FDA approval!
The only fluoride-containing bioactive glass toothpaste to be approved by the FDA for sale in the United States.
Trycare is delighted to announce that BioMin® F toothpaste, sold as Dr Collins BioMin Restore Plus in the USA, has received FDA 510K approval for relief of sensitivity. This is a significant achievement because BioMin® F is the only fluoride-containing bioactive glass toothpaste to be approved by the FDA for sale in the United States.
BioMin® F uniquely controls the release of calcium, phosphate and fluoride ions for many hours after brushing to develop acid-resistant fluorapatite on the tooth surface and inside exposed dentine tubules.
There are many causes of dentine hypersensitivity which means that previously no single toothpaste worked for everyone. One of the advantages of BioMin® F is that it provides a constant supply of low levels of fluoride, calcium and phosphate at the biofilm/saliva/dental interface, which allows fluorapatite to be deposited gradually. After brushing with BioMin® F, the active ingredient adheres to the tooth surface where its controlled release mechanism continuously deposits mineral on the tooth surface for up to 12 hours. This means BioMin® F is more effective at relieving sensitivity than conventional dentifrices, which are rinsed away in around an hour.
Studies around the world also confirm that the fluorapatite developed from BioMin® F penetrates deeply inside exposed dentine tubules, plugging them and preventing the fluid flow which causes dentine hypersensitivity.
BioMin® F has a fresh mint taste and leaves the mouth feeling clean and healthy. For those who prefer a fluoride-free alternative, there is BioMin® C, which is based on a calcium/phosphate bioglass. There is also fluoride-containing BioMin® F For Kids, which is available in Strawberry and Melon flavour.
