A toothpaste that includes BioMinF that binds to the teeth and fills any holes and slowly release mix of calcium, phosphate and flouride that repairs teeth while sleeping is developed by a team led by Professor Robert Hill of Dental Physical Sciences at Queen Mary, University of London.
The said toothpaste repairs the teeth with this miracle ingredient BioMin that could be fired the damage teeth using air jets in a form of sandblasting to remove the damage and seal gaps.
It is believed that in the future, this miracle ingredient known as a bioactive glass will be used to make varnishes to protect children’s teeth.
The BioMinF also effectively reverses the damage caused by acidic drinks and other kinds of foods and drinks.
Laboratory tests show the product is more advanced than other re-mineralising toothpastes mostly sold in the market which includes soluble flouride.
The technology behind the breakthrough is licensed from Queen Mary University and the team will start selling the toothpaste which has a tag price of £4.99 for a 75ml tube.
Prof Hill said: ‘Using re-mineralising toothapste 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 flouride, are washed away and become ineffective less than two hours after brushing.’
Dr David Gillam, an expert in the management of dentine hypersensitivity and a consultant and co-founder of BioMin said that tooith sensitivity is caused by open tubules in the teeth that have access in the nerve receptors that affects the quality of life of persons when they eat, and drink hot and cold food and drink.
He also said that BioMin containing toothpastes are effective in sealing the tubules with acid resistant flourapatite that acts as a barrier to hot and cold that is being transmitted inside the tooth.
Prof Hill also said that the key ingredient in the toothpaste can also be used in many other products and treatments.
