The caries process is a dynamic balance between causative and protective factors1,11
Current evidence-based caries prevention methods of plaque control, diet advice and fluoride do not inhibit bacterial acid.
Fluoride reduces dental caries and delays the onset of the cavitation process, it does not prevent the production or effects of bacterial plaque acid which initiates the caries process.1,4
By introducing technology to neutralise bacterial plaque acid there is an opportunity to control the harmful effects of cariogenic bacteria, which combined with fluoride delivers advanced caries prevention.4
Target the acidic cause of caries with Sugar Acid NeutraliserTM
Sugar Acid NeutraliserTM Colgate’s unique technology powered by arginine, a naturally occurring amino acid, clinically proven to provide superior caries prevention.4
Arginine is metabolised by oral (arginolytic) bacteria producing ammonia which neutralises plaque acid2,3
Restores saliva to neutral pH2,3
Reduces enamel demineralisation1,3
Reduces the cariogenic bacteria’s ability to function2
The combination of Sugar Acid NeutraliserTM Technology+ fluoride results in 4x greater remineralisation1,*
*vs fluoride alone.
Up to 20% fewer new cavities in 2 years5,6,^
^Compared to regular 1450 ppm fluoride toothpaste over 2 years
