Review on BioHAP

Hydroxyapatite as a biomimetic active substance for remineralisation of enamel and dentine

The recently published review on hydroxyapatite in dental care, with all of the relevant current studies from our Dr. Wolff Research team and external research, has been published in the renowned “ZWR – Das Deutsche Zahnärzteblatt” [The German Dental Journal]. This article summarizes scientific evidence in the form of published in vivo, in situ and in vitro studies and clearly highlights the efficacy of hydroxyapatite in dental care.

BioHAP particles interact with the tooth’s HAP.

Magnification shows that BioHAP bonds with the tooth, rather than lying loosely on it.
