Understanding the Seal of Acceptance on Your Dental Products

Posted .

Many people do not know that the American Dental Association has a Seal of Acceptance program. This is so you know if a dental product is safe and effective to use. Dental products can be overwhelming to choose from when you are shopping at the supermarket. That is why, Dr. Carrie Sessom and our team here at Riverwalk Dental Spa & Sleep Solutions in Tulsa, Oklahoma, is thrilled to talk to you about this program, so you know what to look for the next time you need a dental product for you and your family.

The American Dental Association, which is also known as the ADA, has spent more than fifty years focusing on dental care. Part of that focus has been on the plethora of dental care products people are using and bringing into their home. To help people understand which product helps them and their family, the ADA has created the dental program of placing a stamp on any dental product that has been tested safe and efficient for use.

This stamp from the Seal of Acceptance program is significant to note, so you know if items like toothpaste, floss, toothbrushes, mouthwashes, and many other dental products can improve your oral health rather than hinder it. There are over thousands of products submitted for testing each year, yet only the products that pass all the tests and research are worthy of the stamp of acceptance.

The next time you are at the grocery store looking for a dental product, look for the ADA’s Seal of Acceptance stamp. Then, you can keep your smile healthy using the best products possible.
