Clinpro 5000 1.1% Sodium Fluoride Anti-Cavity Toothpaste from 3M ESPE now available to consumers nationwide

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 include:

  • Strengthened teeth
  • 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.
