Brunel Dental Practice

The Myth of the All-Purpose Toothpaste

While a dentist will always recommend utilising a fluoride-infused toothpaste to protect the teeth and gums, they are not able to prevent dental erosion. What statistics were analysed to come to this conclusion?

– All nine toothpastes studied showed varying levels of enamel erosion.

– Research was carried out over a five-day period in order to appreciate short-term effects.

– Donated teeth were exposed to acidic levels similar to real-world situations.

“The test showed that some [toothpastes] caused less surface loss than others, but they all resembled the control toothpaste.”
