BioMin™ is an alternative to Apagard Premio toothpaste.
BioMin C and BioMin F are remineralising toothpaste and are alternatives to Apagard Premio. All products add back enamel / ‘apatite’ to the tooth’s surface and can help repair early decay. In simple terms the main differences between BioMin toothpaste and Apagard Premio is the mechanism by which they deliver apatite to the tooth’s surface.
When you brush with BioMin C a thin coating of BioMin is placed on to the tooth’s surface. This coating dissolves across the day delivering the essential minerals of calcium and phosphate and an acid neutralising hydroxyl ion. The calcium and phosphate combine to form hydroxyapatite the analogous form of enamel which through the natural remineralisation process helps fill in the microscopic defects and repair early decay.
BioMin F benefits by delivering fluoride in addition to calcium and phosphate to form fluorapatite which is 10 times more acid resistant than hydroxyapatite and by deemed scientists the preferred tooth’s enamel mineral.
Apagard Premio contains hydroxyapatite in nano molecular form at a size of 2 microns. This hydroxyapatite helps fill the microscopic defects of the tooth’s surface to help remineralise the enamel from early decay.
Performance comparison BioMin F vs Apagard Premio toothpaste
A research team compared the remineralising rate of BioMin F (calcium fluoro phosphosilicate) and Apagard Premio (nano-hydroxyapatite). BioMin F (3.6 +/- 0.5 vs 3.4 +/- 0.52) showed to have a slightly higher remineralisation rate than Apagard Premio. The difference in results were not statistically significant. source article
The rate of remineralisation is a single measure which is available other measures may be required for a broader comparison.
BioMin and Apagard Premio both have the capability to remineralise at a subsurface level. No comparison between the two products is available or implied.
Treatment of sensitive teeth
BioMin and Apagard Premio both have the capability to enter the tubules and occlude or seal from within. BioMin F has the significant advantage of creating the 10 times more acid resistant fluorapatite seal compared to Apagard which is hydroxyapatite. A head to head comparison of the two products is not available.

Key benefits of BioMin vs Apagard Premio
Price : BioMin F RRP $11.95 BioMin C RRP $12.95 vs GC Tooth Mousse approx. $29.95 to $39.95.
Don’t let price fool you as an indicator of performance. BioMin has been priced to be affordable to a larger proportion of people. Dental care can be expensive, with many people missing treatment due to cost. We have made a socially responsible decision to make BioMin a more affordable treatment.
BioMin F creates a 10 times more acid resistant enamel.
As discussed above Apagard Premio and BioMin C repair and remineralise the tooth with hydroxyapatite an analogous version of enamel. BioMin F includes fluoride which forms fluorapatite which is 10 times more acid resistant the hydroxyapatite.
BioMin F is locally supplied by LAZARK Medical for online orders and is also available at select pharmacies. 94% of orders are dispatched from our Sydney warehouse within 24 hours order placement.
