The corrosion of erosion
Oral-B’s new all-in-one Pro-Expert toothpaste – with its unique combination of polyphosphate and stabilised stannous fluoride – may help reduce the tooth erosion increasingly seen as a result of modern lifestyles.
This new partnership of ingredients in Oral-B Pro-Expert toothpaste has created an innovative and comprehensive range of oral health benefits.
These include protection against gum problems, plaque, caries, calculus formation, dentinal hypersensitivity, staining and bad breath as well as erosion.
Caused by the increasing consumption of acidic foods and drinks, including fruit juices and soft-drinks, tooth erosion is not reversible and can be aesthetically challenging.
Clinical and laboratory studies comparing pastes with stabilised stannous fluoride to those without, showed that the technology significantly reduced progression of erosion. The effect is due to the creation of a protective stannous containing barrier resistant to acid attacks and protecting the underlying enamel surfaces.
However, of additional benefit to users of Oral-B Pro-Expert toothpaste with its unique combination of polyphosphate and stabilised stannous fluoride is the ability of the latter to reduce plaque.
This is achieved by inhibiting bacterial metabolic processes and reducing their ability to adhere to intra-oral surfaces.
