Tandem™ Floss & Fluoride

Tandem Oral Care, Inc. introduces Tandem™ Floss & Fluoride 1.1% NaF dental cream in the 1.8-oz. size plus 25 yards floss in its patented FlossCap™.

It takes two to fight decay, sensitivity, and plaque, and Tandem™ Floss & Fluoride does that.

Reduce plaque formation, relieve hypersensitivity, and protect against adult caries with clinically proven, maximum-strength 5000 ppm fluoride - a good replacement for your regular toothpaste for daily treatment and cleaning.

Tandem™ helps double up against gum disease - convenient FlossCap™ is a constant reminder to floss and Fluoride improves tooth resistance to acid dissolution and the neutral pH is safe for all restorations.
