Hydroxyapatite (HAP) is the main substance in our teeth, 97% of the enamel and 70% of the dentin are made of it1,2.
19% microcrystalline hydroxyapatite(HAp)-containing toothpaste is effective in teeth desensitization by becoming precipitated on the tooth enamel and dentinal tubules and penetrate into the teeth structure.
What does it do to your teeth?3
Microcrystalline hydroxyapatite-containing toothpaste provided sensitivity relief effect in various stimuli, such as cold, compression air and tactile stimuli, responsible for tooth hypersensitivity.
Deposition of microcrystalline hydroxyapatite on the tooth surface restores enamel nearly to the original condition.
Hydroxyapatite-containing toothpaste is effective in stopping tooth caries, because it promotes remineralization in the caries.
