There are many prescription-strength toothpastes on the market, but what can one offer over another?  DPR lists the top five reasons Colgate PreviDent 5000 Booster Plus is the ideal choice for many dental practitioners and their patients.

1. PreviDent 5000 Booster Plus contains 1.1% sodium fluoride, delivering approximately 5 x the ppm fluoride of regular toothpaste.

2. The gel features FluoriGard™ technology, which has been shown in in vitro pH cycling studies to provide better remineralization after 10 days and unsurpassed remineralization after 20 days.º  This optimized fluoride delivery system produces a temporary shift in pH, favoring remineralization and fluoride uptake in the oral cavity.

3. In vitro studies show PreviDent® 5000 Booster Plus delivers an 86% improvement in enamel fluoride uptake versus the previous PreviDent 5000 Booster formula.º

4. PreviDent 5000 Booster Plus contains tricalcium phosphate and is available in 3.4 fl.oz. (100 mL) bottles, in Spearmint and Fruitastic™ flavors.

5. The liquid gel formula enables faster fluoride dispersion versus paste-form prescription toothpaste.º
