The contribution of industry to the decline in dental caries.

Abstract

The contribution of the oral care industry to the reduction in dental caries extends beyond the provision of safe and clinically proven products containing fluoride. The industry has contributed to the scientific base that underpins the use of fluoride, delineated factors that influence the clinical performance of toothpaste, raised the public's awareness of dental health and provided funding to support both undergraduate and postgraduate students in clinical training and basic research.
