It’s the perfect go-to paste for tooth sensitivity and high proneness to decay.
With tooth decay being a common problem worldwide, even in highly developed nations, having products available on hand that help in keeping the teeth cavity-free is very important.
How does it work?
This new toothpaste, BioMinF Remineralization Toothpaste, is unlike toothpastes out there designed for tooth sensitivity and can be used for those who don’t want to use traditional sensitivity toothpastes.
This new product was developed by researchers at the Queen Mary University in London in hopes to fight against cavities and sensitivity across the world, completely changing the future for oral health.
This new paste contains properties to help build the enamel’s vital minerals, which in turn will fight against tooth decay and sensitivity.
Containing BioMin, this toothpaste releases calcium, fluoride, and phosphate ions and in turn helps form a tooth rebuilding, strengthening, and protectant for the teeth known as fluorapatite mineral.
This paste is helpful in making the teeth more resistant to deterioration and damage from acidic foods and beverages, stopping enamel damage before it’s already done, and even strengthening the enamel once damage has been completed.
BioMin, besides being used in toothpastes, can be added to other dental products such as polishing pastes and filling materials for cavities, for example.
In order to help tooth sensitivity in particular, the BioMinF toothpaste can help to seal up the openings to the teeth that expose the teeth’s nerves, which is what truly causes sensitivity, in order to allow the patient to feel relief whenever they consume hot, cold, or sugary foods or drinks.
According to Robert Hill, a professor at Queen Mary University of London, “Using remineralizing toothpaste makes teeth far more resistant to attack from acidic soft drinks like fruit juices and sodas.
It is also 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.”
Where can I purchase this toothpaste?
Right now, very few select dental specialists and online UK retailers have their hands on this new toothpaste, but by the end of 2016, it’s expected to be widely found in stores nationwide. A fluoride-free version of the paste is also being developed.
The developers of this dental product have goal to make this product readily available on the market in higher end retail stores for consumers as well as incorporated into professional dental offices for use on patients.
For now until the BioMinF toothpaste is released, other important ways to keep your enamel strong include the following:
- Use other tooth sensitivity toothpastes
- Drink fluoride-containing water
- Reduce sugary and acidic foods and beverages as much as possible
- Continue with your biannual dental checkups
- Don’t forget to brush, floss, and rinse with mouthwash twice a day
- Chew sugar-free gum
- Eat foods containing calcium to help build/strengthen tooth enamel
