FURDENTYL™
FURDENTYL™ is a Calcium glycerophosphate (CaGP) (US GRAS approved)
It has a cariostatic action and a role as a nutritional supplement
It can be used alone for its intrinsic anticaries activity or combined with
NaMFP for its enhancing effect on the anticaries activity of fluorine
FURDENTYL™ can be used:
•
Locally: Toothpaste, mouthwash, chewing gum, before & after brushing
solutions
•
Orally: Tablets

FURDENTYL™
Biological interests of the Glycerophosphate anion:
 An organic anion
 A mineral element vector
 Has a special biological role in the body’s essential metabolic reactions
Because of its combination with calcium, an appraisal of the anion’s
intrinsic biological properties can be made.
 Cariostatic activity
 Role in the membrane cell and vital organs (especially the brain) tissues
constitution
Hence FURDENTYL role as a nutrient besides its anticaries action.

FURDENTYL™
Being a nutrient & a cariostatic agent renders FURDENTYL
particularly interesting in the case of individuals whose intellect and
physique are still developing, such as teenagers and children.
Dental caries is an infection, usually bacterial in origin, that causes
demineralization of the hard tissues (enamel, dentin and cementum) and
destruction of the organic matter of the tooth, usually by production of
acid by hydrolysis of the food debris accumulated on the tooth surface

FURDENTYL ZnC
FURDENTYL ZnC (Zinc citrate) is considered a safe and appropriate
ingredient for tartar control and antigingivitis oral care products and has a
history of use as a dietary supplement
Tartar forms in the mouth when plaque mineralizes on your teeth. The
resulting hard deposits (calcified plaque or tartar) can only be removed by
a dentist or hygienist.
Zinc citrate helps prevent tartar buildup by preventing plaque from
hardening (calcifying).
Gingivitis is a disease of the gums that occurs when bacteria accumulate
on teeth, producing toxins and irritants that lead to red, puffy gums. If left
untreated, gingivitis can result in tooth loss and other health problems.
Zinc citrate helps prevent gingivitis by inhibiting bacterial accumulation
on teeth and gums.

Dentinal hypersensitivity
The most cheap & efficient first line of treatment is a toothpaste
containing a desensitizing active ingredient such as:
 Potassium Nitrate
 Strontium Chloride
 Strontium Acetate
12
Potassium Nitrate
“The most widely used active ingredient in desensitizing
toothpaste”
Potassium ions work by blocking the synapse between
nerve cells, reducing nerve excitation, and the
associated pain.
Potassium Nitrate is also reported to obliterate the
tubules, reducing the fluid flow in them, ultimately
reducing dentin hypersensitivity.
13
FURDENTYL SrA & SrC
FURDENTYL SrC (Strontium Chloride) forms a barrier
over microscopic tubules in the dentin containing nerve
endings that have been exposed by gum recession.
FURDENTYL SrA (Strontium Acetate) works by
providing a physical plug within the microscopic
channels which helps to prevent the response to
triggers which can cause the short, sharp pain of
sensitive teeth.
