TOOTHPASTES WITH TRICLOSAN MORE EFFECTIVE IN REDUCING DENTAL PLAQUE AND DECAY dentist Albuquerque
Data studied by The Cochrane Oral Health Group found that triclosan, an ingredient in many toothpastes, reduces the level of caries (dental decay), plaque formation, bleeding and gingivitis. The triclosan reacts with a copolymer to bring about these results.
The study found that the addition of triclosan to fluoride toothpastes produced a 22 percent reduction of plaque, 22 percent reduction in gingivitis, a 48 percent reduction in bleeding gums and 5 percent lowering of cavities. The rate of periodontal disease did not seem to be affected.
