Clinpro 5000

How long should someone use Clinpro 5000? Can this be something they use for life or could it become too much fluoride?

As long as they aren’t swallowing it (just like any other fluoridated toothpaste) or have any contraindications based on health history, I don’t see any reason why a person couldn’t use a prescription fluoride toothpaste indefinitely if its needed (high caries risk due to xerostomia, sensitivity due to root exposure, etc.). It comes down to the individual needs of the patient, being aware that these needs can change and need to be assessed in an ongoing manner. On the 3M Clinpro 5000 website they state, “You can use Clinpro 5000 toothpaste in place of your regular toothpaste for the time needed to prevent tooth decay.” http://solutions.3m.com/wps/portal/3M/en_US/dental-oral-health-care/dental-patients/prof-products/clinpro5000-fluoride-toothpaste/
