Tariq Drabu Welcomes News of Advanced Cavity Fighting Toothpaste in 2014
Langley Dental Practice
Tariq Drabu said “An advanced cavity fighting toothpaste can make a significant impact on oral health, as figures show increase in sugar intake.”
Tariq Drabu is a leading dentist and specialist oral surgeon. He is one of the youngest dentists to ever graduate in the United Kingdom at twenty one years of age before working in busy dental hospitals in the UK and Saudi Arabia. Dr Drabu received his Fellowship in Dental Surgery at the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh. He is now the owner of the successful Langley Dental Practice and is also the Clinical Lead Dentist for the Oral Surgery Clinical Assessment and Treatment Services at NHS Heywood Middleton and Rochdale. With a passion for education, Dr Drabu also finds time in his busy schedule to tutor and mentor postgraduate dentists in oral surgery at the UCLAN Dental Clinic in Preston.
Tariq Drabu was speaking about an article published on a top dental website. The full article, which was published on 19 September 2014, can be read on Dentistry.co.uk.
Tariq Drabu in Manchester said “Colgate has recently published information showing that toothpaste which contains 1.5% arginine combined with 1450ppm fluoride provides more protection against caries. Arginine is an insoluble calcium compound. The information was noted when it was compared against toothpastes which only contain 1450ppm fluoride without the calcium compound.”
Tariq Drabu went on to say “The study took place over a two year period and included 12,000 participants. During this period those that used the advanced cavity fighting toothpaste had twenty percent less cavities. This is such an exciting advancement as we see more and more people increasing their sugar intake daily.”
Tariq Drabu closed in saying “Anti cavity toothpaste using the Colgate Super Acid Neutralizer technology has proven to reduce damaging acids caused by dietary free sugars. This can help eliminate the effect high sugar consumption has on oral health. There has been so much news lately regarding how people have increased their sugar intake. It is a serious concern, as many people don’t realise the impact it does have on their oral health. I am thrilled to see that there will be a children variant available as well, which may be able to reduce the number of children with dental caries throughout the country.”
