Enamel Pro offers ACP benefits with its formula
Enamel Pro is the only prophy paste formulated to deliver ACP (amorphous calcium phosphate). Enamel Pro creates ACP when it contacts the patient’s teeth and saliva. The available ACP helps to prevent future damage by stimulating remineralization of the tooth enamel. ACP fills in surface enamel crevices for an intense polish and shine. Scientific data supports that Enamel Pro actually gives greater luster for whiter, brighter teeth. Gluten-free Enamel Pro rinses off easily. Also available in mint, strawberry, cinnamon, grape, and bubble gum flavors in multiple grits. Visit Booth 3525 or visit www.premusa.

Unique blend of probiotics thwarts formation of unhealthy bacteria
Sunstar Americas introduces G·U·M PerioShield Oral Health Rinse – a new and innovative aid for the prevention and treatment of gingivitis. Clinically proven proprietary ingredient delmopinol 0.2% has a unique mechanism of action that disrupts current plaque and helps to prevent new build-up by forming a protective shield on the teeth and gums. PerioShield does not directly kill bacteria, and does not affect the composition of oral microflora, but instead leaves it in a condition that favors healthy teeth and gums. For best results, patients use PerioShield twice a day (10ml) and avoid eating and drinking for about 30 minutes after use of the product.
