Studies and scientific information
General review on BioHAP
Review, published in “ZWR – Das Deutsche Zahnärzteblatt” [The German Dental Journal], summarises the published in vivo, in situ and in vitro studies on BioHAP in dental care.
BioHAP releases Calcium
BioHAP supplies calcium to protect our teeth and also ensures that the acids from caries bacteria are weakened.
Fraunhofer Institute and Dr. Wolff Research show: BioHAP brightens the teeth
A gel with BioHAP results in brighter teeth, while being gentle and non-abrasive. This effect is visible after just the first application.
Karex gelée for cavity protection
A gel with BioHAP is just as effective as a highly concentrated fluoride gel in remineralising caries.
Deep-layer remineralization with BioHAP
A children’s toothpaste with BioHAP is just as effective at remineralising (initial) carious lesions as a children’s toothpaste with fluoride. BioHAP even results in deeper remineralisation compared to conventional toothpastes.
Max-Planck-Scientists prove the adhesion of BioHAP to enamel
BioHAP forms a protective layer on the surface of the teeth. This protective layer makes it difficult for bacteria and acids to attack the natural enamel.
Clinical trial proves efficacy on cavity protection using BioHAP
A BioHAP toothpaste is clinically as effective in caries prophylaxis as a fluoride toothpaste. The study was conducted at 5 German university hospitals.
Early childhood caries: Epidemiology, aetiology and prevention
The frequently cited current review on dental care in children describes the reasons for early childhood caries (ECC). Calcium phosphates in dental care products for use at home are recommended to prevent ECC.
BioHAP protects teeth from bacteria
BioHAP is highly effective in controlling the biofilm and does not affect the ecological balance.
