The American marketplace is rife with hyperbolic advertising messages that are meant to emphasize a product’s benefits while ignoring their inadequacies. This can be of particular concern when it comes to choosing the products you use in your daily oral hygiene regimen.

To address these concerns while helping consumers identify quality oral hygiene products on the retail level, the American Dental Association instituted their Seal of Acceptance program. Since its inception in 1931, the seal has become the hallmark for identifying a high-quality oral hygiene product.

If a manufacturer wants to earn the ADA Seal of Acceptance for an oral hygiene product, they can submit the product to the ADA for testing and research. The ADA will then test and research the active ingredients for safety and its effectiveness as part of 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. As an added convenience, the ADA also provides an index of all oral hygiene products that have earned the seal on their website.
