Study Notes

Tooth Whitening

  • The active ingredient most commonly used in tooth whitening products is hydrogen peroxide.
  • Hydrogen peroxide acts on tooth enamel during the whitening process by breaking down into oxygen free radicals, which then penetrate the tooth enamel and dentin, oxidizing and breaking down the staining molecules, resulting in a whiter appearance.
  • The tooth whitening endpoint during a bleaching treatment is determined by the individual's desired level of whiteness, and can be influenced by factors such as the initial tooth shade, the type and concentration of the bleaching agent, and the duration of the treatment.

Definition of Tooth Whitening

Dental Professional Diagnosis

  • The small vesicles of herpangina form on the oral mucosa, typically on the tonsillar pillars, soft palate, and uvula.
