Sangi Toothpaste Apadent Sensitive

Sangi Apadent Sensitive Toothpaste for Reduction in Dental Hypersensitivity with Nano-Hydroxyapatite and Potassium Nitrate.


Hydroxyapatite (HA) is the main component of enamel, which gives an appearance of bright white and eliminates the diffuse reflectivity of light by closing the small pores of the enamel surface. Hydroxyapatite is also an important source of calcium and phosphate, very important for the remineralization of demineralized enamel areas. The nano-hydroxyapatite has a strong ability to bond with proteins, as well as with fragments of plaque and bacteria, when contained in toothpastes.

Sangi Apadent Sensitive Toothpaste for Reduction in Dental Hypersensitivity with Nano-Hydroxyapatite and Potassium Nitrate.

Japanese company Sangi first became interested in hydroxyapatite – the substance of our teeth and bone – after acquiring a dental materials patent from the U.S. National Aeronautics and Space Authority (NASA) in the 1970s. Astronauts lose mineral from their teeth and bone in a gravity-free environment, and NASA proposed synthesizing hydroxyapatite as a means of restoring this.

Hydroxyapatite (HA) is the main component of enamel, which gives an appearance of bright white and eliminates the diffuse reflectivity of light by closing the small pores of the enamel surface. Hydroxyapatite is also an important source of calcium and phosphate, very important for the remineralization of demineralized enamel areas. The nano-hydroxyapatite has a strong ability to bond with proteins, as well as with fragments of plaque and bacteria, when contained in toothpastes.

This ability is due to the size of nanoparticles, which considerably increase the surface area to which proteins can bind. Besides, nano-hydroxyapatite also acts as filler because it repairs small holes and depressions on enamel surface, a function enhanced by the small size of the particles that compose it.

Potassium is the primary agent for at-home desensitizing toothpastes that disturb the transmission of nerve endings. Potassium salts, including potassium nitrate, potassium chloride or potassium citrate act by diffusion along the dentinal tubules to depolarize the nerve cells so they become unresponsive to excitatory stimuli. The effect of the potassium nitrate is cumulative and it may take several weeks for patients to feel any pain reduction.
