This week on A Tale of Two Hygienists TIPisode we are joined by Andrea Wiseman, RDH to talk to us about fluoride, remineralization and antimicrobial products, highlighting when they should be used for each indication. 


Episode Highlights

  • Dose response
  • Over the counters, and who should use them




“Always remember to look at the ingredients, and look at the actives” 


“Tartar control products are designed to stop mineralization of plaque into calculus; This is the same remineralization process that repairs de-mineralization areas, if you stop one process, you stop the other”


“Read those labels well” 


“This is a catch 22 because if the patient brushed well in the first place they wouldn’t need stannous” 


“Is the patient at risk for caries only? Or Caries, Gingivitis, and Perio?” 


“Chlorhexidine stays present in the mouth for 8-12 hours killing bacteria”
