Kinetics of Enamel Demineralization in vitro
TLDR
In vitro findings suggest that relatively small differences in DS En values found in plaque fluid may result in very significant differences in the rate of enamel demineralization in vivo. Expand
Prevalence and severity of gingivitis in American adults.
PURPOSE To investigate prevalence and severity of gingivitis in representative American adults. METHODS Subjects (1,000) in Loma Linda, California; Seattle, Washington; and Boston, MassachusettsExpand
Comparing the efficacy of a dentifrice containing 1.5% arginine and 1450 ppm fluoride to a dentifrice containing 1450 ppm fluoride alone in the management of primary root caries.
TLDR
A new dentifrice containing 1.5% arginine, an insoluble calcium compound, and 1450 ppm fluoride, as sodium monofluorophosphate, provided statistically significantly superior efficacy in arresting and reversing active root caries lesions in adults compared to a matched positive control dentif Rice containing fluoride alone. Expand
Comparison of the efficacy of a dentifrice containing 1.5% arginine and 1450 ppm fluoride to a dentifrice containing 1450 ppm fluoride alone in the management of early coronal caries as assessed
TLDR
A new dentifrice containing 1.5% arginine, an insoluble calcium compound, and 1450 ppm fluoride, as sodium monofluorophosphate, provided statistically significant superior efficacy in arresting and reversing active coronal caries lesions in children than brushing with a matched positive control dentif Rice containing fluoride alone. Expand
A clinical investigation of the efficacy of a dentifrice containing 1.5% arginine and 1450 ppm fluoride, as sodium monofluorophosphate in a calcium base, on primary root caries.
TLDR
It is concluded that the new toothpaste containing 1.5% arginine and 1450 ppm fluoride, as sodium monofluorophosphate in a calcium base, provided greater anticaries benefits than a conventional toothpastes containing 14 50 ppm fluoride. Expand
Comparison of clinical efficacy of three toothpastes in reducing dentin hypersensitivity.
TLDR
The test toothpaste, when used for a single topical application and twice-daily brushing for seven days, does not provide statistically significant relief of dentin hypersensitivity compared to a negative control toothpaste containing 1100 ppm fluoride as NaF in a silica base. Expand
Clinical evaluation of the efficacy of an in-office desensitizing paste containing 8% arginine and calcium carbonate in providing instant and lasting relief of dentin hypersensitivity.
PURPOSE To determine the efficacy of an in-office desensitizing paste containing 8% arginine and calcium carbonate relative to that of a commercially-available pumice prophylaxis paste in reducingExpand
Dentin hypersensitivity reduction of a new toothpaste containing 8.0% arginine and 1450 ppm fluoride: an 8-week clinical study on Chinese adults.
TLDR
The study showed that the new Pro-Argin formula toothpaste provided significantly greater reductions in dentin hypersensitivity in response to tactile and air blast stimuli than the negative control toothpaste after 2, 4, and 8 weeks of product use. Expand
The clinical effect of a single direct topical application of a dentifrice containing 8.0% arginine, calcium carbonate, and 1450 ppm fluoride on dentin hypersensitivity: the use of a cotton swab
TLDR
The results of this examiner-blind clinical study support the conclusions that both fingertip and cotton swab methods of application provide significant reductions in dentin hypersensitivity immediately after a single direct topical application of the 8.0% arginine-calcium carbonate dentifrice. Expand
Effect of sucrose concentration on the cariogenic potential of pooled plaque fluid from caries-free and caries-positive individuals.
TLDR
The chemical composition of plaque fluids, following sucrose exposure, were found to correlate well with caries history and differences in microbiological composition and possible differences in plaque permeability to sucrose are discussed. Expand
