Give us a Challenge
And We'll Find a Solution
IR Scientific is an oral care company creating unique inorganic polymers that allow us to control a number of important variables. We encourage the body to heal itself while reducing the impact on your body or the planet.
IR was born of a passion for better-than-traditional patient treatments and improving lives. We are focused on the development of cosmetic and preventive oral health products and commercialize ion release materials for specific roles in consumer and professional oral health and cosmetics.
Give us a challenge. We’ll find a solution.
Our uniquely engineered biomaterials are suited to a variety of applications in oral health. The inorganic polymers we create encourage the body’s own healing processes. Once they fulfil their function each of our biomaterials degrade fully in water.
Creating a Revolution in Oral Care
Our first product is Sensi-IP. Sensi-IP is designed to be added to consumer and professional oral care applications such as pastes (OTC and prescription), varnishes, oral rinses, mouthwashes or other novel products.
Today’s sensitivity treatments
IR Scientific worked with dental professionals to create a list of shortcomings with today’s sensitivity treatments:
- Too abrasive
- Limited occlusion
- Limited remineralization capacity
- Limited long-term effectiveness
- Billions have been spent trying to make old solutions work
- Billions have been spent trying to out-market the market leader
Sensitivity toothpaste marketing has outpaced innovation, leaving significant opportunity for technological advancement.
Tooth sensitivity solved
Sensi-IP has solved the problems with today’s best sensitivity treatments, and is engineered to address clinical and consumer issues related to tooth sensitivity:
- Low abrasion suitable for every day use
- Perfect particle size for full tubule occlusion
- Sustained fluoride release up to 24 hours
- Precipitates acid-resistant fluorapatite
- Degrades completely
Sensi-IP is the answer to tooth sensitivity.
