BioMin Technologies Limited was established in 2014 to commercialise the award-winning research conducted over the past decade at Queen Mary University London and Imperial College, London.
This research and product formation focused on developing bioactive glass materials to help reduce tooth sensitivity, help replace lost mineral from tooth surfaces and protect against tooth decay.
In 2016 BioMin™ F Fluoride containing toothpaste went into large scale production and is now promoted by our distribution partners around the world. BioMin™ C was introduced in late 2017 for those who refuse to use a Fluoride containing toothpaste but still require relief from sensitivity and effective remineralisation of their teeth.
The technology behind BioMin™ can also be utilised to create new composite posterior restorative materials (made of bioactive glass), which could replace amalgam fillings. The bioactive glass composites may actually replenish minerals that are lost due to tooth decay. Additionally, the bioactive glass may fill any marginal gaps that develop over time and prevent oral bacteria from infiltrating and breaking down the restoration. This process could significantly enhance the life expectancy of a composite restoration.
