Oral Health Foundation gives first-ever approval of toothpaste for sensitive teeth
LONDON, UK: Tooth sensitivity is an issue that affects more than 40 per cent of adults at some stage of their life, according to recent research. BioMin F, a toothpaste specifically developed for sensitivity reduction and tooth remineralisation, has become the first toothpaste to receive accreditation from the Oral Health Foundation for these purposes.
BioMin F works by slowly releasing calcium, phosphate and fluoride ions, which together form a protective layer of fluorapatite on the tooth surface. This mineral compound effectively seals any exposed and open dentinal tubules, a key cause of tooth sensitivity.
The Oral Health Foundation has the largest oral healthcare product accreditation scheme in the world. The charity’s panel of experts, as part of the approval process, examine claims made by a specific product to ensure that these are valid and can be supported by scientific evidence.
“It is a great pleasure to be adding our seal of approval to BioMin F,” said Dr Nigel Carter, OBE, Chief Executive of the Oral Health Foundation.
“Tooth sensitivity and enamel loss can cause many people a great deal of pain. For those looking for a toothpaste which combats sensitivity and enamel demineralisation, BioMin F is a good and effective option,” he declared.
“Oral Health Foundation accreditation is a hugely important endorsement of our toothpaste,” added BioMin CEO Richard Whatley. “It assures consumers that BioMin F has been evaluated by an independent panel of internationally recognised dental experts and academics.”
