Sensodyne® Pronamel™

Sensodyne® Pronamel™ Toothpaste from GlaxoSmithKline is a multi-benefit dentifrice designed to help reharden softened tooth enamel and protect against sensitivity. Pronamel is formulated to be pH-neutral and minimally abrasive, while providing high fluoride availability, caries protection, and fresh breath.

Pronamel is designed to help protect against tooth wear and acid erosion. Its formulation includes highly available fluoride as compared to other everyday toothpastes. In addition, Pronamel has a neutral pH of 7.1 (7.4 when diluted 1:3 with saliva), which helps protect against enamel or dentin demineralization

Clinpro™ 5000

Clinpro™ 5000 1.1% Sodium Fluoride Anti-Cavity Toothpaste from 3M ESPE Preventive Care is an advanced formula containing an innovative tri-calcium phosphate ingredient. This prescription-strength toothpaste delivers more fluoride, helps strengthen enamel and helps reverse white-spot lesions better than a conventional 5,000 ppm prescription fluoride. The proprietary formula successfully integrates fluoride, calcium, and phosphate, enhancing rather than compromising the product’s performance. During the manufacturing process, a protective barrier is created around the calcium allowing it to coexist with the fluoride ions. As the toothpaste comes into contact with saliva during brushing, the barrier breaks down and makes the elements readily available to the tooth. The tooth naturally absorbs these components, helping to prevent the initiation and further progression of demineralization, allowing remineralization to occur.

ACP has demonstrated the ability to remineralize tooth structure by enhancing the tooth’s natural repair mechanism.. Aegis’ controlled flowability keeps the sealant on the tooth while completely filling the pits and fissures.

GlaxoSmithKline, makers of Sensodyne®, announces the arrival of new Sensodyne® ProNamel™ for Children, designed to help protect children’s teeth against the effects of acid erosion.
