Pronamel science

The optimized formulation of Pronamel1–10

Specially designed to deliver more fluoride to the acid-weakened enamel*3,5

Pronamel contains 1150ppm fluoride in an optimized formulation designed to maximize fluoride delivery.3 By omitting components that inhibit fluoride uptake, which are present in many fluoride toothpastes, Pronamel dual-protection formulation enhances remineralization and inhibits demineralization, strengthening and protecting enamel.2-6

Pronamel optimized formulation:

  • Delivers up to 10x higher fluoride uptake vs a non-optimized fluoride toothpaste**
  • No phosphates5,7
  • No polyvalent metal ions8
  • High fluoride availability8
  • No SLS9
  • Neutral pH10
  • Enhances remineralization and inhibits demineralization2-6

Demineralization-and-Reminerlisation

How enamel is affected by enamel erosion

Enamel undergoes natural dynamic cycles of remineralization and demineralization,11-13 normally favoring remineralization due to mineral-rich saliva, which helps neutralize acidity and reharden enamel.

However, exposure to gastric or dietary acids can demineralize and weaken enamel, causing it to lose some of its mineral content. Because the tooth’s recovery process is slow, if the acid attack happens frequently, the enamel will not have a chance to repair itself.

Not all fluoride toothpastes are the same
