Many of you are “high risk” and “high maintenance”
There are many situations that would prompt our staff to recommend a patient use a prescription toothpaste. Often times we find out that someone has forgotten exactly why they need to do so and they since haven’t noticed a change in how their mouth feels, so they stop using it.
Here are a few high risk scenarios:
*One or more decayed teeth during the last three years
*Medications or medical conditions that cause dry mouth
*Exposed root surfaces
*Currently in braces
*Many multi-surface fillings
*Chemo or radiation therapy
*Drugs, and alcohol or smoking
*Poor oral hygiene
*Soda, juices or energy drinks frequently
One of the best products we have to offer our patients is a tube of take home Clinpro 5000, a low abrasive toothpaste that strengthens the enamel and creates a slicker tooth surface that helps prevent plaque, calculus, stain and sensitivity.
Although the instruction say to brush normally with Clinpro, adults benefit from leaving a finger smudge of paste on the areas most at risk without rinsing away afterwards.
