Your daily oral hygiene routine is a very important preventative measure against periodontal disease and cavities. This consists of brushing your teeth in the morning and night while also making sure to floss at least once each day.

The quality of the oral hygiene products you use will directly impact the effectiveness of your oral hygiene routine.

To aid in this effort American Dental Association instituted their Seal of Acceptance program. Since its inception in 1931, the program has become the benchmark for identifying high-quality oral hygiene products.

If a manufacturer wants to earn the American Dental Association’s Seal of Acceptance product they can submit it in advance of its launch. They will then test and research the active ingredients for safety and its effectiveness as part of an oral hygiene routine. If the product meets the rigorous guidelines, it will earn the right to print the Seal of Acceptance on the label.

It’s also important to note that the American Dental Association also provides an index of all oral hygiene products that have earned the seal on their website.
