J Dent Res. 2008 Oct;87(10):943-7.

Elevated fluoride products enhance remineralization of advanced enamel lesions.

Caries prevention might benefit from the use of toothpastes containing over 1500 ppm F. With few clinical studies available, the aim of this pH-cycling study was to investigate the dose response between 0 and 5000 ppm F of de- and remineralization of advanced (> 150 microm) enamel lesions. Treatments included sodium and amine fluoride, and a fluoride-free control. Mineral uptake and loss were assessed from solution calcium changes and microradiographs. Treatments with 5000 ppm F both significantly enhanced remineralization and inhibited demineralization when compared with treatments with 1500 ppm F. Slight differences in favor of amine fluoride over sodium fluoride were observed. The ratio of de- over remineralization rates decreased from 13.8 to 2.1 in the range 0 to 5000 ppm F. As much as 71 (6)% of the remineralized mineral was calculated to be resistant to dissolution during subsequent demineralization periods. With 5000-ppm-F treatments, more demineralizing episodes per day (10 vs. 2 for placebo) would still be repaired by remineralization.

I believe Aim is one such toothpaste containing 5000 PPM F.

Colegate PreviDent 5000 does also, I recommend it for the Dunkin Donut mouths that do not brush properly. It is great for remineralization of root caries

In france (available in other countries ?), there is Fluodontyl(Sanofi-Aventis), which is 13500 ppm.

Pcus: can you buy any of those toothpastes from your local (canadian) shopper's drugmart or grocery stores?

I check the toothpaste isles regularly everytime im in a drugstore or a supermarket, and i don't think i have ever seen any high fluoride toothpastes.

In BC, Prevident 5000 was available from the pharmacist over the counter, but without a prescription. Here in CT, a prescription is required. Not sure about Quebec.

The prevident should be available in most drug stores, the big ones especially. We have a small Phamacy in our concourse that carries it.

If there is Phamacy you buy some of your supplies then he can order it for you..It is quiet expensive $9-12 per tube. I will check the inter web and find out which stores carry it ...(my son hates when I call it the inter web)

I think Aim ES contains 1,500PPM but that is 50% more than the usual 1,000ppm.
5,000PPM is only vis Rx like Prevident a sfar as I know.
