Many patients suffer from dentine hypersensitivity following scaling treatment. Applying BioMin F toothpaste straight after the treatment may prevent this from arising.

Scaling treatment commonly causes dentine hypersensitivity (DH), a problem that hygienists see in the surgery all too often. Some patients experience short-term discomfort, while others find the procedure unbearable.

Applying BioMin F to the teeth after scaling has been shown to reduce and even completely eliminate sensitivity.
A trial published in Contemporary Clinical Dentistry (2018) compared the efficacy of three kinds of toothpaste in reducing DH – immediately after scaling, and then at 15, 30 and 60 days later.

The group who brushed with BioMin F experienced lower levels of sensitivity both immediately after the scaling treatment and also over the following two months.

Hygienist Gitana Rederiene now routinely applies BioMin F toothpaste with a soft rotary brush after scaling and polishing. ‘Because BioMin forms a fluorapatite layer on the tooth surface, I can be sure that my patients go out of the clinic with protected dentine,’ she said. ‘They don’t complain of post scaling sensitivity anymore.’

London hygienist Bhavana Dower agrees. She also recommends that patients use the product ahead of deep cleaning procedures and whitening to prevent the problem from arising.

Application of BioMin in surgery

  • After scaling, clean the teeth with the prophy paste of choice
  • Wash off the residual paste
  • Apply a small bead of BioMin F toothpaste into a small Dappens glass
  • A small rotary brush should be dabbed into the paste and carefully applied, using a slow brush speed,
    to exposed dentine areas of the scaled teeth
