Macleans toothpaste is proud to be there to help with the upkeep of your family’s teeth.
Our Multi Action toothpastes provide 24 hour Sugar Acid Protection*, heroically defending your teeth night and day against cavity-causing sugar.
WHAT IS IT AND HOW DOES IT WORK?
24 hour Sugar Acid Protection* contains active fluoride, the special ingredient which binds to the enamel and draws new minerals into the tooth leaving it stronger than before.
WHY DO I NEED SUGAR ACID PROTECTION*?
Whilst we all enjoy a bit of sugar, too much of it can damage your teeth. And as our diets have broadened, so has the presence of sugar. The sugar menace never rests, so it’s important to protect your teeth 24 hours a day
WHAT DOES SUGAR DO TO MY TEETH?
Sugar is turned into an acid by bacteria in the mouth. In time, this acid can dissolve so much mineral within the tooth that it collapses, causing cavities.
OW! HOW DO I FIGHT IT?
As a general rule, lowering your sugar intake reduces the risk of cavities. But that doesn’t mean just cutting down on cakes and sweets because ‘hidden’ sugars can lurk in all sorts of surprising places.
> Processed foods that contain added sugar such as cereals and cooking sauces
> Foods containing complex carbohydrates such as bread and pasta, which can release sugars in your mouth
