  • Pro-Argin Study Summary Ayad et al Toothpaste Efficacy
    When used over a period of 8 weeks, the novel toothpaste containing arginine and MFP in a calcium carbonate base significantly reduced dentine hypersensitivity (p < 0.05) in response to both the tactile and air blast stimuli. Compared to the commercial toothpaste with 2% potassium ion and NaF, the arginine containing toothpaste was significantly (p < 0.05) more effective in reducing hypersensitivity scores after 2, 4, and 8 weeks of use (16.2%, 22.4%, and 21.4% for tactile stimuli; 16.2%, 29.2%, and 63.4% for air blast stimuli).

    When used over a period of 8 weeks, the novel toothpaste containing arginine and MFP in a calcium carbonate base significantly reduced dentine hypersensitivity (p < 0.05) in response to both the tactile and air blast stimuli. Compared to the commercial toothpaste with 2% potassium ion and NaF, the arginine containing toothpaste was significantly (p < 0.05) more effective in reducing hypersensitivity scores after 2, 4, and 8 weeks of use (37.0%, 30.0%, and 12.2% for tactile stimuli; 23.9%, 32.0%, and 29.3% for air blast stimuli).

Articles Articles/Materials
  • Sensitive Teeth
    Many adults suffer from sensitive teeth or dentine sensitivity. This condition is common when the enamel covering the crown of the tooth is worn away and the root surfaces of teeth are exposed.
  • What is Tooth Sensitivity?
    Tooth sensitivity is tooth pain due to a wearing away of the tooth's surface or gum tissue. The most common cause of sensitive teeth in adults is exposed tooth roots due to receding gums.
