Dentifrice was originally used to promote oral hygiene by cleaning teeth. However, with advances in product formulation, it has become a valuable vehicle for the delivery of agents offering health and cosmetic benefits.
Sodium fluoride, introduced in 1955 in dentifrice, is one of the longest established of such agents. The well known anticaries efficacy of sodium fluoride is based on its impact against the development of tooth cavities.
Over the years toothpaste formulations have become more and more sophisticated, with a huge array of products each promising something slightly different. Scientists are not only more knowledgeable about oral health and the varying needs of our teeth, but are also constantly developing new ways of creating and combining effective formulas and ingredients. One of the most important innovations in oral care has been the use of Stannous Complex in toothpaste.

The greatest challenge scientists faced was to stabilize the Stannous, while maintaining its effectiveness.

After many years of research and development the Oral-B team was finally able to stabilise the formula and fully unlock its benefits with BAM Pro-Expert All in 1.
