The American Dental Association seal of acceptance logo is a small, green square that is placed on products that have passed tests that have evaluated for safety and effectiveness. This program has been around since 1931 and it is still the gold standard today.
The ADA does not receive compensation for placing this logo on dental care products, and the seal is never sold. The ADA simply wants to help you pick the best products for your smile so you can finally reach the strong and successful oral health you deserve. Some products that have the seal of approval include:
· Denture adhesives and denture cleansers
· Flossing products
· Sports mouthguards
· Mouthwash, including fluoride, antibacterial, and nonprescription rinse
· Emergency tooth preservation products
· Temporary pain relievers
· Sugar-free chewing gum that prevents cavities
· Teeth-whitening bleach
· Fluoride brush-on gel
· Water filters
If you choose a product that has been approved by the ADA, your smile will be completely taken care of; this is because the ADA searches for FDA-approved ingredients, purity and uniformity, packaging and advertising claims, and much more when they evaluate the product.
