Crest® PRO-HEALTH™ produced a statistically significant reduction in dental plaque coverage 24 hours following last use.
To determine whether the antiplaque efficacy of Crest® PRO-HEALTH™, a dentifrice containing anti-bacterial stannous fluoride (and sodium hexametaphosphate for cosmetic benefits), extended to 24 hours post use.
Morning plaque coverage was 13.3%.
Plaque coverage significantly increased when pre-bedtime brushing was discontinued, with 24-hour growth covering 18.4% of the dentition.
Intervention of the antimicrobial stannous fluoride dentifrice provided significant inhibition of plaque regrowth over 24 hours (15.2% coverage, a 17.4% reduction vs. sodium fluoride dentifrice control).
