Greetings everyone cool.gif ...

this is just a simple summer topic icon_sun.gif ...

Did any of ur patients ever ask u what is the best available tooth paste? rolleyes.gif

Donno about u but about 90% of my patients ask me that and i answer them with a diplomatic answer that i've been tought 2 say back in school;

"...it doesn't matter the type of paste u use... all that matters is how u do it ...and how many times..."

ok...i know thats true but is there a tooth paste better than another?

how about u spread some light on this subject based on ur personal experience and some scientific back ground?

Peace 2 all flowers.gif ...

hi everybody . . .
this is the most frequently asking question i always answer like that ; most of the available tooth paste had the same effect so unless the patient needs specific tooth paste 4 specific purpose as 4 example ;decrease the sensitivity 4sensitive teeth ..also some paste are special 4 bleeding gum or the patient needs to decrease the effect of coffe tea and smoking stains deposits (whitening tooth paste could help )all the tooth paste r the same and its better 2 change the type from time 2 time and 2 not stuck always 2 the same type

i don't have that personal experience but i prefer using CREST ...coz of the amount of abrasives (e.g. silica) included... beside it contains 1450 ppm Fluoride

hi dr.Hfadel

Any toothpaste with SDA. OR ADA seal on it

considered as a right toothpaste to use.

and i don't usually agree of changing the type of toothpaste from time to time, cuz whenever u r ok with a toothpaste just keep on using it, cuz soemtimes changing may cuz local or general infalamm. in the gingiva so


for me i usually use signal 2 li2annoh 7aqeeqatan mrayye7ni o monsib leyah o mithl ma ti3rfoun it has the SDA. seal on.

and usually i prescribe corsodyl as a mouth wash for my pts. and it helps them alot..

anyway i think this differs from dent. to dent.

lakin ha'da howa alli ana amshi 3alaih

thanks Doc. for such a topic.

Salam..

Back.. mrgreen.gif

they told us at school :

any TP with SDA or ADA seal on it is the appropriate TP..

as what dr_al_twaijry said..

(i think this is related to KSU students blink.gif )

I looked at the market & found that the only one stamped with SDA stamp is signal 2.. mrgreen.gif

i always recommend to pts..

btw ,, i heard about a TP called (parodontix) i wanna know what is used for ???

if any knows ,, am happy 2 know...

ok

what i know about parodotix is it is ability to decrease bleeding and gengival inflamation and this is in general never been in the chemistry of the product

but away from toothpasts there is amouth was the some patients and relative...it is called ADOLE mouth wash

it is anasthetic specially in case of ulcers,,,herps stomatitis..and also gengivitis

many patient they were comfortable using it

fee kalam mag6ooo3

i was saying that some patients and relative were so comfortable using it

Parodontax toothpaste helps preventing inflammation of the gums. It contains a.o. echinacea and camomilla.

Without fluoride.(blue one)

I hate Signal 2 and never recommend it
Coz as I know scientifically it contains the highest no. of abrasives
And personally coz it is tooooo sweet

I prefer any gel type containing fluoride (Close Up, Colgate, Crest, etc)

braces

i don't think signal 2 has that high amount of abrasives

cuz according to what i heard from a consultant in resto.

SENSODINE (which is not by the way a toothpaste it should b use as a topical flouride gel)

has a very very high amount of abrasives regardless it contains flouride

and they make the advs. for it that it's a good toothpaste

(Allah y7asibhom 3ala ki'da di3ayat)

+ colgate f i remember well (i hope i'm not mistaken)

has that ingredient sodium monoflourophosphate

which really makes local or general infalmm. for high no. of ppl., and i usually don't prescribe it.

i usually prescribe TP using sodium flouride in it as an ingredient.

thanks

Colgate, Signal 2 and Close up all contains 0.32% sodium fluoride

I will try to check for the abrasives again later and let u know clover.gif

Salut Dr.Fadel

sorry to be late in replying redface.gif
but u know im on my vacation cool.gif
anyways
in my opinion
or what i usaully tell my patients when they ask me about the best toothpaste
is that any TP containing fluoride
but...
i ask them to avoid the TP that have abrasives in them in the form of particles that can "scratch" the enamel
e.g. CloseUp with the blue particles bluedot.gif bluedot.gif bluedot.gif

now, prescribing a TP also depends on the case
for example when a patient has evidence of gingivitis or early adult periodontitis, i advise him/her to use Parodontax, since it's proven to be very effective in such cases, but u have to warn the patient from this toothpaste's taste.. since it is "salty" in taste. shutup.gif sick.gif

in cases of tooth sensitivity, of course Sensodine works fine with most of the patients

this is ofcourse my opinion and what i have found to work quite well with me in the clinic specool.gif

thank you Dr.Fadel for this nice topic..

Ciao
