Abrasiveness Levels in Toothpaste

Ranked by RDA value (Relative Dentin Abrasivity)

We recommend a low abrasion toothpaste (under 75) to help prevent increased sensitivity and gum recession. Below you’ll find a list of common toothpastes organized by brand, from low to high abrasive values. 

The ADA had a RDA limit for certification of 250, while the FDA caps it at 200.

Low: 0 – 70
