Nano Medical Hydroxyapatite (nano <mHAP>) is a proprietary form of the calcium phosphate compound hydroxyapatite, originally developed by Sangi and clinically approved as an anti-caries ingredient in Japan in 1993.
Nano medical hydroxyapatite <mHAP> is almost the same substance as the hydroxyapatite of our teeth thus it is safe, biocompatible and even edible!
Benefits of Nano medical hydroxyapatite (<mHAP>)
nano mHap relieves tooth sensitivity by filling and coating exposed dentin tubules.
It also protects and restores tooth enamel in 3 ways:
- Collecting and helping to remove plaque: its nanoparticles bind protein such as oral bacteria and plaque fragments during brushing, facilitating their removal from the mouth.
- Filling surface fissures: the crystalline calcium phosphate nanoparticles directly replace lost mineral to restore subsurface demineralized areas of tooth enamel (incipient caries) and fill microscopic fissures on the enamel surface.
- Remineralizing subsurface demineralized areas (incipient caries): it directly replaces lost mineral to restore subsurface demineralized areas of tooth enamel (incipient caries).
