As part of a clinical study, it was shown that brushing teeth daily with a toothpaste containing hydroxyapatite significantly improved the pain sensation of hypersensitive teeth to ice water.1 The first noticeable effects can be observed after approximately 3 days.2
Use Bioniq® Toothpaste Duo for daily brushing – in the morning, the evening and as needed in-between. For the comprehensive protection of teeth and gums, we also recommend the daily use of Bioniq® Repair Tooth Milk, for example after eating. In addition, in the case of particularly sensitive teeth, the toothpaste can also be applied to the affected tooth or teeth with a finger.

Bioniq® Toothpaste Duo has all the cleaning and protective properties of a conventional fluoride toothpaste (caries protection). It contains hydroxyapatite to repair microscopically small defects on the enamel surface. Problems with the teeth and gums are prevented. Hydroxyapatite toothpaste has been clinically proven to reduce sensitive teeth. This makes Bioniq® Duo ideal for daily use, in the morning and evening.
How is Bioniq® Toothpaste Duo different from Bioniq® Repair-Toothpaste and Bioniq® Repair-Toothpaste Plus?
The main active ingredient in all Bioniq® toothpastes is 20% artificial enamel (hydroxyapatite). The use of hydroxyapatite has a positive effect on the health of the teeth and gums. These effects include the formation of a biomimetic protective film around the teeth and the prevention of tooth sensitivity.
In addition to the active substance hydroxyapatite, Bioniq® Repair-Toothpaste Plus contains two further active substances that work to protect against gum problems: The natural antimicrobial active substance lactoferrin and the proven biologically active substance hyaluronic acid.
Bioniq® Toothpaste Duo offers the Duo effect with bisabolol. This active ingredient soothes the tooth nerve, and hydroxyapatite closes off (occludes) exposed tubules.Bisabolol also supports gum regeneration, has an anti-inflammatory effect and soothes irritated gums.
Our teeth are exposed to constant mechanical and chemical attacks. Many foodstuffs and drinks, even healthy fruit, contain acid. The result: The protective tooth enamel surface becomes rough and porous. Microscopically small defects result. This can cause sensitive teeth, as stimuli can reach the tooth nerve through exposed dentinal tubules. Exposed tooth necks due to receding gums can also lead to sensitivity to pain.
Our teeth are exposed to constant mechanical and chemical attacks. Chewing, brushing when we clean our teeth, and acidic food and drink all attack the teeth. Once it has been worn down, enamel cannot be reproduced by the body. The artificial enamel in Bioniq® Duo repairs microscopically small defects and forms a protective layer against wear when used regularly. In this way, Bioniq® Duo fights the cause of pain-sensitive teeth in a natural way. Hydroxyapatite crystallites (artificial enamel) occlude exposed dentinal tubules and adhere to the surface of the teeth. This repairs the surface of the enamel and dentin and effectively reduces sensitivity to pain.
The active ingredient bisabolol is found in plants such as chamomile. It soothes the tooth nerve, supports gum regeneration, has an anti-inflammatory effect and soothes irritated gums.

All Bioniq® Toothpastes have a mild formula and are generally very well tolerated. In some homeopathic treatments/therapies, flavorings in food/dental care products (such as menthol) should generally be avoided. Bioniq® Toothpastes, like most toothpastes on the market, contain an aroma containing menthol, which provides a pleasant feeling of freshness. If you have any questions as to whether menthol or any of the other ingredients should be avoided during homeopathic treatment, please contact your doctor or alternative practitioner.
