Phos-Flur, said to be the No. 1 fluoride rinse prescribed by orthodontists, now is available without a prescription. Phos-Flur is ideal for the special needs of orthodontic patients. Research suggests that the acidulated Phos-Flur formula actually forms submicroscopic reservoirs in tooth enamel to hold and "lock" the fluoride into place. The result is fluoride uptake in areas where it`s needed most - under and around orthodontic appliances. Phos-Flur rinse will remain available in the same formula, same strength and same flavors as the current prescription product. It will be stocked behind the pharmacy counter and dispensed on the recommendation of dental professionals to their patients. For details, call (800) 2COLGATE.
