Curacept Toothpaste ADS705 anti discolouration system is a toothpaste that contains 0.05% sodium fluoride and 0.05% chlorhexidine for daily use. With Curasept’s patented ADS (Anti Discolouration System) – so no staining of the teeth, gums or tongue.
Especially suited to patients with orthodontic appliances or bands but recommended to all as an excellent everyday toothpaste. An ideal gel/toothpaste containing NO sodium lauryl sulphate (“SLS”). Recommended where the patient is using chlorhexidine mouthwashes. Chlorhexidine will adhere to the patient’s gums and teeth for up to 12 hours doing its job.
SLS is a detergent-like substance which washes the chlorhexidine away which is something we definitely do not want to happen. SLS is an ingredient in most commonly available in toothpaste. SLS is also often associated with the formation of apthus ulcers.
