ABSTRACT
This article focuses on an experimental study to test the validity of claims made on the ability of the dentifrice Pepsodent. Claims assert that Pepsodent removes mucin plaque from teeth by dissolving them. The study found that Pepsodent does not digest mucin plaque and that the amount of pepsin in the product is ineffective.
