The Relative dentin abrasivity (RDA) is a method for measuring the abrasive effect that the components of toothpaste have on the tooth

 


Toothpaste Abrasivity Index

McGlone Dental Care, Denver Colorado

 

The Relative dentin abrasivity (RDA) is measured in different toothpaste brands. The American Dental Association recommends that we all use a toothpaste that is ranked with a low-value number. Notice that many of the "whitening" toothpastes rank higher in values. Whitening toothpaste is very abrasive. We recommend that patients use a low-value RDA ranked toothpaste.

 

The RDA Table:
0-70 Low Abrasive
71-100 Medium Abrasive
101-150 Highly Abrasive
151-250 Regarded as Harmful Limit
