LONDON, ON, Sept. 12, 2011 /CNW/ - 3M ESPE is now offering Clinpro 5000
1.1% Sodium Fluoride Anti-Cavity Toothpaste (NPN 80012416) at Shoppers Drug Mart stores nationwide, in addition to the product's
previous availability through dental professionals.
Clinpro 5000 is an anti-cavity toothpaste featuring an advanced formula
containing fluoride, calcium, and phosphate, which are components
naturally found in saliva.
"At 3M ESPE, we're proud to have offered Clinpro 5000 toothpaste to
dental professionals since May 2010," said Lisa Citton-Battel, Business
Manager with 3M ESPE. "Now, patients can further benefit from the many
enhancements this toothpaste provides since it's readily available at
Shoppers Drug Mart stores across Canada."
Some of the many benefits of using Clinpro 5000 anti-cavity toothpaste
Reversed signs of early lesions
Increased fluoride delivery to teeth
Gentle cleaning and whitening
During the manufacturing process, a protective barrier is created around
the calcium allowing it to coexist with the fluoride ions. Think of
this as a bubble that transports the Tri-Calcium Phosphate to the
teeth. As the toothpaste comes in contact with saliva during brushing,
the barrier breaks down and makes the calcium, phosphate and fluoride
readily available to the tooth. The tooth naturally absorbs these
components, helping to prevent the initiation and further progression
of demineralization and allowing remineralization to occur.
Clinpro 5000 1.1% sodium fluoride anti-cavity toothpaste from 3M ESPE is
now available in vanilla mint flavour for $13.99 at Shoppers Drug Mart
and through your dental professional.
