NovaMin® is a synthetic active ingredient used in professional dental products. It’s a breakthrough technology in the form of a white powder that’s found in NUPRO® extra care prophy paste. NovaMin® amplifies the natural protective and repair mechanisms of saliva. It’s effectiveness in achieving desensitization has been proven extensively in a range of clinical and scientific studies3, including two published clinical studies1,2.
We believe GlaxoSmith Klien has sold the use of NovaMin® to Dentsply USA for exclusive rights in their NUPRO® prophy paste, however we have found they didn’t sell out the rights to it completely. Note: Sensodyne Repair and Protect “a GlaxoSmith Klien product” contains NovaMin® only when purchased overseas. Here is a link that we feel is useful for those looking to use the NovaMin® bioactive glass at home. We are not affiliates of, nor do we take responsibility for errors on behalf of amazon or the link provided. We peronally use this home care product and purchase it through these channels.
