oraNurse® is an unflavoured toothpaste specially formulated for people sensitive to strong flavours. It has the daily reccomended fluoride and is SLS free (non-foaming).
oraNurse® unflavoured toothpaste was initially developed in a response to the need of autistic children who have a problem with taste, even to the extent of not liking the taste of water. This has resulted in the development of a toothpaste with no or sodium lauryl sulphate (foaming agent) but still with the protection of 1000ppm fluoride for children aged 0-3 years and 1450ppm fluoride for children aged 4 years plus and the original adult formula.
Other possible indications for the need of an unflavoured toothpaste include people who simply don’t like the taste of mint or adults and children with learning disabilities or a medical complication where they perceive mint to have a ‘hot’ or ‘burning’ sensation.
In the pilot tests were adults and children with learning disabilities, people with poor compliancy and not receiving oral care as frequently as twice a day where they perceive mint to have a ‘hot’ or ‘burning’ sensation,Lichen Planus sufferers, patients with sore mouths as a result of head and neck radiation, burning mouth syndrome, Sjögrens, Parkinson’s, other degenerative diseases and people that have an intolerance to Limonene.
