Beth Jordan, RDH, MS, from Crest and Oral-B introduces a new daily use toothpaste targeted at patients with caries or erosion concerns. This new formulation is optimized for fluoride uptake, remineralization, while neutralizing the effects of bacterial plaque acids and protecting from erosive tooth wear. Its antibacterial and anti-erosion effects provide benefits beyond those provided by other fluoride sources. Acid-softened enamel is 10x more susceptible to wear. This is especially important to consider for patients with frequent low pH dietary exposures and those who brux, even pediatric patients for a lifetime of protection.
