Biorepair Junior toothpaste is specially formulated for children. It uses the microRepair® technology in place of fluoride to maintain healthy teeth and mouth.
Its delicate formula makes it safe for children under six (6) years to use without adult supervision.
Traditionally, toothpaste is made using fluoride to counter demineralization of the tooth and cavity formation. However, if fluoride is overused in children (up to about 8 years), it causes fluorosis – faint white lines or streaks on the teeth.
Biorepair Junior avoids fluoride and instead replaces it with microRepair® technology. This consists of a substance called Hydroxyapatite: a similar substance to what teeth are made of. They bond to the surface of the enamel and re-mineralize it. It also prevents tooth decay and bacteria by releasing zinc ions.
