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.
- 0 – 75: low abrasive
- 76 – 100: medium
- 101 – 150: high 151 – 250: harmful
