Tooth Mousse Plus
GC TOOTH MOUSSE PLUS – WITH FLUORIDE
MAKING A GREAT IDEA EVEN BETTER !
Tooth Mousse Plus is an exciting addition to the GC range of easy-to-use topical products for in-surgery and at-home dental care. It contains a unique, patented form of fluoride in a product designed for high risk patients. It has all the benefits, ease of use and great taste of GC Tooth Mousse, but with enhanced remineralizing capabilities. No wonder it’s called Tooth Mousse Plus.
NOW YOU HAVE TWO OPTIONS TO PROVIDE PREVENTIVE CARE FOR YOUR PATIENTS:
+ Regular Tooth Mousse in strawberry, mint and vanilla flavours.
+ New Tooth Mousse PLUS in strawberry, mint and vanilla flavours.
Flouride Rinse or Varnish
Fluoride rinses contain between 200 and 900ppm fluoride, while varnishes contain between 22,600 and 25,000ppm fluoride. These can be effective preventive agents in patients with enhanced risk, but normal salivary function.
CPP-ACPF has been shown to be superior to fluoride alone in promoting fluoride uptake into plaque and enamel in people with normal salivary function. Further, CPP-ACPF promotes the remineralization of subsurface enamel with fluorapatite in the body of the lesion, not just at the surface layer like fluoride alone. Patients with salivary dysfunction (dry mouth) show a great propensity to mineral loss and typically lack sufficient bioavailable calcium ions for effective remineralization when fluoride is used in isolation. Using a product such as Tooth Mousse Plus which releases bioavailable calcium as well as phosphate and fluoride ions can help to provide effective remineralization even in more challenging situations where salivary parameters are abnormally low. It boosts salivary levels of these ions in a form equally well suited to in-office professional and at-home use.
Regular or PLUS
Tooth Mousse Plus is recommended at night when a dentate patient has marked salivary dysfunction (dry mouth), for example, because of medications, systemic illnesses, or salivary gland disease, because of the enhanced risk of mineral loss from dental caries or dental erosion. These patients would also benefit from daytime applications of GC Dry Mouth Gel to gain symptomatic relief from oral dryness. Patients should be at least six years of age before using Tooth Mousse Plus.
Regular Tooth Mousse, which is fluoride-free, is the appropriate product to use in infants and young children (up to six years of age) because of issues with fluoride ingestion.
The unique CPP-ACPF (amorphous calcium phosphate and fluoride) complexes in Tooth Mousse PLUS were developed at The University of Melbourne School of Dental Science.
