A twelve-week independent and double-blind clinical study was conducted on a sample of 143 calculus forming adult male and female subjects--with the average age of 39.11 years--to compare directly the anticalculus efficacy of three commercially-available dentifrices, as compared to a placebo dentifrice. The three commercially-available dentifrices were: Colgate Total toothpaste, Colgate Tartar Control toothpaste and Pepsodent Ultra toothpaste. All these three dentifrices provided statistically significant reductions in supragingival calculus formation, as compared to a placebo dentifrice. There was no statistically significant difference among the three commercially-available dentifrices with regard to anticalculus efficacy.
