Dentifrice solutions provide therapeutic, cosmetic and cleaning benefits.

Phosphates are used in a variety of dental applications. More effective dentifrices have been developed over the last two decades, combining therapeutic (anticaries), cosmetic (whitening, tartar control) and cleaning benefits.

ICL produces a complete line of calcium phosphate products that span a wide range of abrasive levels for use as polishing agents, including DCPD, DCPA and Lustre-Phos®. Pyrophosphates that exhibit anticalculus activity (tartar control) include TSPP, TKPP and SAPP. The polyphosphates STPP, SHMP and TSPP are used as whitening agents that improve the whiteness and brightness of teeth by removing surface stains. Other phosphates, including SAPP, TKPP, STPP and TCP, are currently being used in dentifrices, mouth rinses, floss and chewing gum for functions such as anticalculus activity and for protecting sensitive teeth.
