The Role of Abrasives in Dentifrices

  title={The Role of Abrasives in Dentifrices},
  author={Sangeetha Subramanian and Devapriya Appukuttan and Anupama Tadepalli and Prakash Ponnudurai Samuel Gnana and Dhayanand John Victor},
Dentifrices are oral health care products that are used by individuals on a daily basis to promote personal oral hygiene. Toothpastes serve as essential vehicles to carry biologically active and inert substances that provide therapeutic and cosmetic benefits. They offer several advantages such as anti-bacterial action, reduce hypersensitivity and improve remineralization of teeth. Despite the benefits, toothpastes also have the potential to bring about both hard and soft tissue destruction by…

Aesthetic Management of Erosive Tooth Wear in a Young Egyptian Swimmer: A Case Report
Anterior teeth were restored using the injection molding technique, also known as the injectable composite resin technique, to overcome the patient’s complaint and enhance the aesthetics of compromised anterior teeth.
Teeth whitening is one of the most sought-after procedures in aesthetic dentistry. Discolorites that are difficult to whiten, caused by dentin changes or enamel defects, can be eliminated by

A Qualitative and Quantitative Study on the Abrasivity of five Philippine-brand Toothpastes
This study evaluated the degree of abrasion of five Philippine-brand toothpastes and showed that Brands G, H, and HN were not significantly different from Brand C, and Brand X was not significantlyDifferent from Brand P, while Brand U was significantly less abrasive than Brand P and significantly more abrasivethan Brand C.
Analysis of the effectiveness of whitening dentifrices and their effects on the dental surface: an in vitro study
O clareamento dos dentes pode ser realizado de varias maneiras, em consultorio, no âmbito caseiro ou com a utilizacao de produtos OTC (Over-the-Counter). Dentre esses produtos, existem os


Over-the-counter whitening agents: a concise review.
There is a need for independent clinical trials to provide sufficient evidence regarding the use of OTC bleaching products, and dentists should be acquainted with this kind of products to be able to inform their patients.
Multi-function toothpastes for better oral health: a behavioural perspective
This review considers the technological advances and scientific background to the development of dentifrices for a variety of expressed different purposes, from caries reduction through incorporation of fluoride, through periodontal disease prevention by use of anti-microbials to tooth whitening, breath freshening and reducing hypersensitivity and calculus formation.
An overview of tooth-bleaching techniques: chemistry, safety and efficacy.
A study assessing the impact of teeth on personal esthetic satisfaction found that dental variables (including tooth color) were more important than orthodontic variables, suggesting that the appearance of the teeth was a greater contributing factor to an esthetic smile than their position within the arch.
A clinical investigation of the tooth whitening efficacy of a new hydrogen peroxide-containing dentifrice.
A new whitening dentifrice delivering 1.0% hydrogen peroxide, 0.243% sodium fluoride and sodium tripolyphosphate has significant tooth whitening effectiveness, producing a mean shade rank score reduction from baseline of 5.17 after four weeks' use.

Extrinsic stain removal efficacy of a stannous fluoride dentifrice with sodium hexametaphosphate.
Two randomized, six-week, double-blind, parallel group, clinical trials demonstrate the statistically significant extrinsic stain removal efficacy for the stannous fluoride + sodium hexametaphosphate dentifrice relative to baseline.
Can tooth brushing damage your health? Effects on oral and dental tissues.
In normal use it must be concluded that the benefits of tooth brushing far out-way the potential harm, and when combined with erosion that significant harm may be thus caused.

Evidence suggests that patients suffer the painful symptoms of dentine hypersensitivity when dentine is exposed and the dentinal tubule system is opened to the oral cavity to allow stimuli to trigger
Effect of toothpaste with natural calcium carbonate/perlite on extrinsic tooth stain.
The Whitening toothpaste has been shown to be significantly more effective in tooth stain removal than the two standard commercial toothpaste formulations.
The effect of a calcium carbonate/perlite toothpaste on the removal of extrinsic tooth stain in two weeks.
Analysis of covariance on the sum of the whole mouth stain scores showed that the calcium carbonate/perlite toothpaste removed significantly more stain over the two week study than the silica control toothpaste.
