Repair Teeth With NovaMin

It is now possible to repair teeth using NovaMin. 
NovaMin is a white, tasteless powder developed and patented by NovaMin Technology, Inc. Originally, it was developed to help repair the broken bones of battle wounded soldiers. In the 1990s, NovaMin was first used by scientist as a treatment for sensitive teeth. Later on, they found that NovaMin would release certain ions that help remineralize teeth.

Today, it is used in dental care products for the remineralization of teeth. It contains an active ingredient called calcium sodium phosphosilicate, consisting of silica, ionic calcium, phosporus and sodium. These ions are necessary for bone and tooth mineralization. In May 2010, the rights of Novamin were bought over by GlaxoSmithKline for US$135 million.

The underlying layer of the tooth, called the dentine, is a porous layer with many tiny channels running through it to the nerve in the centre. The dentine is protected by a hard enamel layer. When dentine is exposed, the tooth becomes sensitive.

GlaxoSmithKline's product, Sensodyne provides relief for sensitive teeth. With the acquisition of NovaMin, they have now produce a breakthrough formulation with the new Sensodyne Repair & Protect,  which is the first fluoride toothpaste to contain the patented NovaMin technology.

When NovaMin is exposed to  water or saliva in the mouth, they will release calcium and phosphate ions, which then forms a mineral layer over exposed dentine. This mineral layer is chemically and structurally the same as the tooth mineral. With twice a day brushing, it helps to continuously repair and protect the tooth from further damage and at the same time repairs lesions that cause tooth sensitivity. Thus NovaMin is today the most powerful tooth sensitivity relief.

  1. Anti-microbial and anti-inflammatory benefits
