Before you get braces, you should use a remineralising toothpaste to repair your teeth!

BioMin toothpaste for braces and orthodontics helps prevent and repair enamel damage

Braces can damage your teeth the inability to easily brush and food becoming trapped increases the risk of decay. Before you get braces use an orthodontic toothpaste like BioMin to help prepare the enamel. BioMin then can be used during and after orthodontics to help prevent white spots (decay areas) that may form, and help repair any that do.

Many people have white spots on their teeth? Most of these lesions are actually the early stages of decay that can lead to holes developing. Orthodontics is highly likely to worsen the situation,  with research suggesting that up to 96% of orthodontics patients ending up with some form of decay (demineralisation) [ii].

The British Dental Journal[i] recommends that before braces/orthodontics are applied, patients should have an extremely high standard of oral hygiene. It is essential that all carious (decay) lesions are repaired prior to treatments commencing.

 

Good news, there is a natural repair process (remineralisation) to repair orthodontic damage. However, it is a very slow process, with some studies suggesting only a 30% success rate and taking up to 6 years.[iii].

BioMin drives the remineralisation process and can help repair white spots caused by braces with noticeable improvement in months. BioMin’s unique slow release mechanism delivers the enamels building blocks of calcium and phosphate to repair the demineralised (damage) area. BioMin F which also has fluoride helps strengthen the enamel and make it more acid resistant and resistant to future enamel erosion.

BioMin F was developed by  Professor Hill’s team at Queen Mary University of London, delivering calcium and phosphate to the tooth to drive a high remineralisation rate . BioMin F is Australia’s number 1 consumer rated toothpaste and dental product (ProductReview.com.au). BioMin C the fluoride free variant is the number 1 rated fluoride free toothpaste.
