Mode of Action

Research has shown that available intra-oral fluoride at the tooth surface, into plaque and on oral mucosa optimizes the clinical efficacy of fluoride.5,6 This helps prevent demineralization and makes fluoride available for remineralization together with calcium and phosphate ions.7,8,9 When used, ACT® Braces Care™ Anticavity Fluoride Mouthwash creates a non-acidic, pH-neutral environment in the mouth and works along with the patient’s saliva. This process helps defend against caries and prevent “white spots” from forming.
