The desensitizing dental gel, with patent-pending calcium phosphate microsphere technology, alleviates tooth sensitivity and discomfort.

DenMat Holdings has launched ZEN CP+, a new product in the oral hygiene category. The desensitizing gel product is manufactured to alleviate tooth sensitivity and discomfort by reportedly delivering nano-sized calcium phosphate minerals to the tooth surface, occluding and penetrating deep inside the dentinal tubules. The patent-pending microsphere technology reacts with saliva to deliver mineral-forming calcium phosphate ions.

“This innovative new product helps dental professionals treat tooth sensitivity by using what is already present in the tooth—calcium phosphate,” says David Casper, chief executive officer of DenMat. “Our team recognized a need for a new product in this space, one that treats patients in a safer, more effective manner. University research data shows ZEN CP+ to be a superior alternative to other desensitizing products in its ability to occlude dentinal tubules.”

ZEN CP+ is formulated with CAPOSAL microsphere technology, featuring small particles consisting of calcium phosphate that penetrate the dentin tubules and rapidly release calcium and phosphate ions for rapid mineralization. Minerals are formed deep into the dentin tubules and are unaffected by wear and acid. ZEN CP+ does not contain any milk-derived proteins, making it safe for patients with milk-based allergies. Designed for daily use, ZEN CP+ is available in 45 gram tubes and is brushed on to the teeth as part of one’s daily oral care regimen.

ZEN CP+ will be available to dental professionals via dental dealers and will be available to consumers through dental offices in the United States and Canada.
