BioMinF Armour for teeth: Remineralising and occluding toothpaste

BioMinF is a breakthrough innovation that could significantly reduce dental decay. Professor Hill

BioMinF’s unique slow release technology rebuilds, strengthens and protects teeth

  • A 24/7 fluorapatite shield helps protect enamel against sugar, acids and tooth decay. When under sugar / acid attack BioMin F uniquely increases its rate of protection.

  • null

    Advanced remineralisation with balanced calcium and phosphate helps repair and rebuild enamel.

  • null

    With aging the gum line recedes, BioMinF can help internally occlude (seal) the exposed tooth.

  • Low fluoride formula up to 60% less fluoride than regular toothpastes

How does fluoride prevent tooth decay
  1. Fluoride promotes remineralisation – tooth rebuilding and repair.
  2. Fluoride hardens the tooth and forms fluorapatite.

Slow-release fluoride a breakthrough in protective performance.

A 24/7 fluorapatite armour protects enamel against sugars and acids

BioMinF’s patented technology turns the tables on traditional toothpaste.  Normally when you wash your teeth the level of available fluoride decreases quite rapidly 2 due to rinsing,  salivary secretion, and swallowing.  BioMinF’s patented technology significantly increases the level of therapeutically available fluoride for up to 12 hours after brushing.

The availability of fluoride, calcium and phosphate creates a fluorapatite armour on the tooth’s enamel surface.  The fluorapatite armour helps protect the tooth against decay (caries), and helps shield against modern sugar-laden diets.  When the tooth comes under attack BioMinF releases more fluoride to help further protect the tooth.

Technically, BioMinF releases fluoride, calcium and phosphate in essential proportions to create fluorapatite. An effective armour coating, which is twice as strong as the tooth’s enamel.  A constant supply of low levels of fluoride in biofilm / saliva / dental interface is considered beneficial in preventing dental decay. 

For fluoride to be beneficial for longer than the time of brushing, fluoride needs to be deposited and slowly released.

BioMinF remineralising toothpaste with active acid resistance

 

Remineralisation

For the remineralisation process to take place calcium and phosphate must be available within saliva. The addition of fluoride drives the remineralisation process and also hardens the tooth.

 

BioMinF shows a higher remineralisation rate

BioMinF shows a higher remineralisation rate than many retail remineralising kinds of toothpaste and dental products. Scientists beleive that the slow release of fluoride, calcium and phosphate of BioMinF is the reason for the high remineralisation rate.

BioMinF retards demineralisation with active acid resistance

Acids in the mouth cause demineralisation, decay and cavities. BioMinFs breakthrough technology releases additional essential minerals when under attack from acids. This helps retard demineralisation in 2 ways:

    1. The release of minerals helps neutralise the acids.
    2. A fluorapatite armour coating is formed. This coating hardens the tooth and is more acid resistant.

Combats sugar & acid attack

Modern diets are full of sugar. BioMinF works harder when under attack.

Modern diets are full of sugars, bacteria in the mouth turns these sugars into acid. Acids attack teeth leading to decay (caries). BioMinF has a unique breakthrough mechanism to combat acid attack.  When under acid attack, BioMinF releases additional fluoride ions. These fluoride ions help defend the tooth against decay.

Protects against the signs of ageing :

Internal occlusion of dental tubules with acid resistance

With ageing, the gum line can recede exposing dentinal tubules. New technology has enabled a portion of the BioMinF particles to be small enough to enter the tubules. BioMinF’s unique formula helps create a preferential fluorapatite seal from within, for greater resilience to acid attack. Fluorapatite is created on the surface of the tooth and also preferentially on the appetite rich walls of the dentine tubules. This fluorapatite seal exhibits a high-level reduction in hydraulic conductance.

Less than 1/2 the fluoride of regular toothpaste

Lower fluoride content reduces the risk of fluorosis

BioMinF Armour for Teeth® uses less than half* the fluoride levels of regular toothpaste, and lasts up to 6 times longer3.  BioMinF Armour for Teeth®   patented long release formula delivers therapeutically beneficial levels of cavity fighting fluoride for up to 12 hours.

* BioMinF Armour for Teeth® available fluoride content when packed 600 ppm. Standard toothpaste is generally 1400 to 1500 ppm.

Healthier teeth for longer

The health of your teeth is fundamental to your quality of life. If you look after them properly it is possible to still have a full set of teeth into your nineties. To achieve this you need to have good oral hygiene all the way from childhood through to old age and also visit your dentist regularly.

24/7 BioMinF shield
Enamel, Demineralisation and Remineralisation

The BioMinF molecule is able to slowly release fluoride, calcium and phosphate ions over a period of 8 to 12 hours. Effectively reducing demineralisation and help to increase remineralisation of the tooth and fight decay.

Exposed dentine and tubule occlusion

In healthy teeth or for those people generally less than 40 years of age the tooth’s enamel protects the underlying layer of dentine. However, if the enamel becomes worn, cracked or the gum starts to recede with ageing the dentine (dentin) can become exposed.
