Biomin-F Toothpaste Binds Itself To Your Teeth For 12-Hour Protection


It doesn’t matter how much you brush and floss your teeth, cavities eventually happen. It sucks but that's life. We’re not entirely sure whether a new toothpaste will improve on those results, but BioMin-F’s round-the-clock protection certainly sounds like it can improve your chances.

A new toothpaste developed by a team from Queen Mary University of London and Imperial College London, it’s a long acting toothpaste, whose potency lasts way after you’ve put the toothbrush away. Unlike traditional toothpastes that work for a couple of hours, it enacts a slow release of calcium, phosphate, and fluoride ions, allowing it to stretch the formula’s protective function for up to half a day.

Biomin-F works by binding itself to the teeth for a duration of between 8 and 12 hours, allowing it to slowly release the active ingredients over time. The fluoride content coats the teeth enamel with a protective layer that’s far more resistant to the onslaught of tooth-attacking acidic drinks like sodas and fruit juices, while the calcium and phosphate help your saliva replace any minerals lost when consuming those same acidic drinks and eating sugary food items. Simply put, the calcium and phosphate enable the toothpaste to form new tooth mineral, which helps to rebuild, strengthen, and protect the overall tooth structure.

Currently, the toothpaste is produced in 75ml tubes sold for £5 each, but is available only to dentists via wholesalers in the UK. They are planning to release it commercially by the end of the year, though, with a fluoride-free version also in the docket.

    I like the time-release of the active ingredients, but I am not a fan of Fluoride. I am not a big conspiracy theorist in general, but Fluoride is a poison and is often found in amounts higher than it should be in residential water systems. If they release a fluoride-free version I owuod be all over this. I see in the article that a fluoride-free version is in the works, and hopefully it will come out to mass market the same time the fluoridated version does. It seems like a great way to introduce your toothpaste product is to release it through dentists only at first, and then release it for sale through regular retail channels.

    I think this product is a good idea, but for all I know it could be some crazy marketing gmmick that doesn’t work any better than regular toothpaste. I’ll be looking forward to seeing some reviews of this from independent dental professionals.

    I’m all for trying new products to keep my teeth in their best health. I can understand why this would be offered to dentists first but I kind of wish they could have offered this to the public at the same time as professionals. I’ve always wondered how brands like Crest claim to offer protection for say 12 or 24 hours or whatever the claim is. How does something that isn’t left behind accomplish so much? I like the sound of the ingredients slowly activating throughout the duration of the day but is this just talk or something that you guys think would work? If anyone knows of a place that may offer samples, please let me know. Thanks!

    I was offered a trial tube (I asked for a tube on their website). It’s very much like regular minty toothpaste, although it has a slightly gritty feel. I’ve not noticed much of a difference after two weeks of usage, but there’s still lots in the tube so I’ll keep going with it.
