Dental Materials, Prophylaxis, Paste

Definition : Dental materials designed to clean and polish teeth by the dental care staff. These dental materials usually consist of a semisolid mixture (i.e., a paste or cream) comprising several abrasive compounds; some dental pastes include fluoride in their preparation. Prophylaxis pastes usually start out coarse and gradually break down into smaller particles as you clean, resulting in less abrasion to the dentin and enamel; they provide a high-luster enamel polish. Prophylaxis pastes are available in different levels of coarse formulation (e.g. extra, medium, and fine); they are usually supplied in cups packaged in boxes. They are used in dentists' offices for prophylactic treatments.
