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.
