As toothpastes have advanced, manufacturers have sought increasingly effective ingredients to go beyond cleaning to offer further improvements in plaque and gingivitis management. Triclosan is one such ingredient. Instead of Triclosan, Crest chose to use an active ingredient called Stannous Fluoride.
Crest Pro-Health toothpastes are formulated to deliver the same plaque and gingivitis benefits and more without Triclosan. With regular brushing, Crest Pro-Health toothpastes protect ALL the areas dentists check most. Crest Pro-Health’s success at improving consumers’ oral health has been validated over 20 years or research, with 12 patents, and by millions of smiles all over the world.
