Reduced fluoride concentration and longer protection with BioMinF toothpaste
COLOGNE, Germany: Visitors to the International Dental Show (IDS) in Cologne in Germany will have the opportunity to learn more about a major breakthrough in toothpaste technology. BioMinF allows the slow release of low-level fluoride for up to 12 hours, which, together with calcium and phosphate, gives increased protection to tooth surfaces. BioMinF helps replace lost minerals from tooth enamel, prevent the early stages of dental caries and provide effective occlusion of exposed dentinal tubules.
BioMinF toothpaste was launched in mid-2016 and is the result of many years of scientific research by Prof. Robert Hill and his team in the Dental Physical Sciences unit at Queen Mary University of London in the UK.
According to Hill, “BioMinF makes teeth far more resistant to attack from acidic beverages like fruit juices and fizzy drinks and is much more effective than conventional toothpastes where the active ingredients, such as soluble fluoride, are washed away and become ineffective less than two hours after brushing.”
While clinical trials are ongoing, early consumer trials indicate considerable reduction in sensitivity, with good acceptance of taste and texture of the toothpaste.
Samples of BioMinF toothpaste will be available to IDS visitors at BioMin Technologies’ booth (E35) in Hall 11.3. BioMin is sharing a stand with Cera Dynamics, the manufacturer of the bioactive glass contained in the toothpaste.
