Using only high-quality oral hygiene products is essential for maintaining good, long-term oral health. Unfortunately, many manufacturers will employ invasive marketing claims to over emphasize the quality of products that only have cosmetic value.
In response to this problem, the American Dental Association instituted their Seal of Acceptance program. Since its inception in 1931, it has become the industry standard for identifying a high-quality oral hygiene product.
A product’s participation in the program is voluntary. If a manufacturer wants to earn the ADA Seal of Acceptance for an oral hygiene product, they can submit it to the ADA for testing and research.
The American Dental Association will then test the active ingredients for safety and their effectiveness in 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. This means you should feel confident in its ability to help you maintain good oral health.
In order to further help consumers with their research, the ADA also provides an index of all oral hygiene products that have earned the seal on their website.
