The Protective Benefits of Fluoride

Fluoride protects teeth, drives the repair process and makes the tooth harder and more acid resistant

Is fluoride good or bad?

Small amounts of fluoride, released slowly over time, can have a therapeutic benefit of enhanced resistance to acid attack and decay.

Low-fluoride toothpaste : 60% less fluoride

BioMinF is a low fluoride toothpaste with 50-60% less fluoride than standard toothpaste. Whilst maintaining therapeutic levels of fluoride in the mouth for up to 12 hours

Quality over quantity. How less fluoride can actually be more

Fluoride within the bio-glass structure of BioMinF is used more effectively, therefore less is required.

Note:  In ANZ BioMinF is not approved to make sensitivity claims.

Remineralisation / Demineralisation :  Remineralization / Demineralization / Acid and Sugar Protection
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.

BioMinF remineralising toothpaste with active acid resistance

BioMinF remineralises the tooth’s surface and helps inhibit the demineralisation process.

Actively protect teeth against sugar and acid

When under acid attack or sugar attack BioMinF increases its protective benefits

BioMinF protects against sugars and acids
Bioactive glasses dissolve under acidic conditions to protect teeth.

When faced with an acid challenge BioMinF increases the rate dissolution, raising the pH to minimise demineralisation / damage.

Remineralising toothpaste – do the homemade recipes really work?

The food you eat has the biggest impact on the acidity of your saliva.

Benefits of fluorapatite

Fluorapatite is more resistant to acid than tooth enamel (hydroxyapatite) and hence gives greater protection against acid attack.

White marks on teeth : White Spots on teeth

White spots white marks on teeth are a sign of mineral deficiency and early decay. BioMinF can help replace those minerals and remove the white spots / white marks. Cause include braces, whitening treatments, acids & sugars.

How to reduce enamel loss, broken teeth and tooth decay

Enamel plays a very important role in protecting teeth from decay and sensitivity, so it is important to prevent damage and erosion. Enamel forms a strong barrier that shields the inner dentine layers of teeth from the effects of acids and plaque, and protects against sensitivity to hot and cold foods and beverages.

Open tubules before and after brushing with BioMinF
Exposed dentine & 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.
