NovaMin®—a white, tasteless powder—is a compound made from elements found in healthy bones and teeth: calcium, phosphorus, silica and sodium (Ca, P, Si and Na). Together, they create the perfect ion balance to ensure tooth remineralization and provide the most powerful sensitivity relief available.
NovaMin® actually creates the natural conditions for rapid remineralization by amplifying the natural protective and repair mechanisms for teeth and gums. Each microscopic NovaMin particle delivers Ca, P, Si and Na. When exposed to moisture, the particles instantly release billions of mineral ions, forming a hard and strong hydroxycarbonate apatite (HCA) layer on tooth dentin and enamel, repairing lesions that cause sensitivity.
NovaMin’s critical fourth ingredient—sodium—causes the saliva to become alkaline, speeding the formation of the HCA layer for faster sensitivity relief. Applied in one easy step, NovaMin products continue releasing sodium ions for up to seven days, providing long-lasting desensitizing and remineralization.
What’s more, the Na and Ca ions in NovaMin overwhelm bacterial cells’ ability to regulate their water content, which kills harmful bacteria.
THE RESULTS: Teeth that are less sensitive, cleaner, whiter and healthier than those treated with fluoride alone.

The origins of NovaMin® go back to a chance encounter between a materials scientist and an army colonel and their conversation about helping to repair the shattered bones of soldiers who were battle wounded. That conversation led to a revolutionary bone repair material. After over a million patients benefited from that creation, researchers found a way to adapt the same technology for renewing the vitality of teeth.
Thus, NovaMin® was born.
