Dear Dr. Ellie,
Act rinse VS act restoring mouthwash…. Is one product better than the other? Act restoring claims to strengthen softened tooth enamel. Act Rinse claims to make teeth stronger. Do both do the job? The sodium flouride (.15%) is the same in each.
I would only recommend the original ACT rinse.
I do not believe the original can be improved.
Unless you have absolutely no saliva in your mouth, all the needed ingredients for remineralization are present in your own mouth.
The original ACT works to stimulate natural rebuilding of teeth with these natural minerals.
It does a superb job so I would stick to the old formula.
The concentration of 0.05 % seems to be the very best for rebuilding softened tooth enamel.
The important thing is the time that this rinse is in contact with your teeth the longer the better.
This is why use last thing at night is the best time of all. here is a link to a bit more information about remineralization:
Are you using the complete system? …if no, I would love to persuade you to try it!
Thanks for your question,
Ellie Phillips, DDS
