Be Sure to Only Use High-Quality Oral Hygiene Products

Posted .

Not all oral hygiene products are created with the high standards of the American Dental Association and Dr. Kevin M. Altieri. Hyperbolic marketing messages and flashy graphics are sometimes used by the manufacturers of low-grade oral hygiene products to disguise their ineffectiveness in a daily oral hygiene routine.

To help consumers identify and purchase only the highest quality of oral hygiene products for their family, the American Dental Association employs their Seal of Acceptance program. Since its inception in 1931, it has become the industry’s standard of quality for oral hygiene product manufacturers.

A manufacturer can choose to submit a product for testing by the ADA shortly before its launch. The ADA tests the active ingredients for safety and its effectiveness as part of an oral hygiene routine. If the product meets the rigorous guidelines, it will receive certification for the Seal of Acceptance to be printed on the label.

The ADA also maintains an online index of approved oral hygiene products on their website. This helps consumers conduct their own research from the comfort of their own home.
