Review of Current Toothpaste Abrasion Limits
SORRY, THIS COURSE IS SOLD OUT!
Samuel St. John, PhD has co-authored 21 peer-reviewed publications, applied for 4 patents, and given over 20 invited conference talks around the world including to the ISO standards organization, the American Dental Association, and several University’s undergraduate and graduate seminars.
In this course we will provide a condensed historical account of clinical and technical research on dentifrice abrasivity, which culminated in the methods we use and standards we apply for today’s commercial dentifrices. It is hoped that this information will help researchers to not only recognize and appreciate the sound, scientific basis for current models, but also to help them remember a few key concepts that remain relevant to the continued evolution of dentifrice abrasion models.
- Review the science used to determine the current abrasive limit of RDA 250
- Provide an answer for how abrasive does a dentifrice need to be
- Provide an answer for how much abrasion is too much
- Provide an answer for how do we measure abrasion efficiently and effectively in the laboratory
- Reaffirm the current FDA abrasive limits
- Review practical dental applications
