Understanding the benefits of using low-abrasion, sulphate-free toothpaste

Understanding the benefits of using low-abrasion, sulphate-free toothpaste

Although tooth enamel is the hardest substance in the body, the dentin that lies beneath it can become exposed – through, for example, wearing away of the enamel or gingival recession. Using a hard-bristled toothbrush along with an abrasive toothpaste can scour off the enamel and expose dentin. Relative Dentin Abrasivity (RDA) is a standardised method of measuring the erosive effect of toothpastes on tooth dentin. The lower the RDA, the less dentin is likely to be worn away. Unlike other toothpastes, the low-abrasion formula in UltraDEX Low-Abrasion Toothpaste gently removes bacteria and restores natural whiteness to teeth by oxidising organic stains.

UltraDEX Low-Abrasion Toothpaste is non-foaming due to the absence of sodium lauryl sulphate (SLS), which creates the foaming effect that many of us are accustomed to in toothpaste. Advise your patients who have never previously used a non-foaming toothpaste, that they will experience a less foamy mouthfeel. This is perfectly normal and they are still getting the all the benefits of the toothpaste.

When it comes to brushing, I always advise patients to use UltraDEX Low-Abrasion Toothpaste. Whilst patients will notice a less foamy mouth feel due to the absence of SLS, this is completely normal and it helps minimise any risk of sensitivity.
