Microbeads: the conversation continues

On August 13th, in collaboration with Procter & Gamble, we published a post dealing with the safety of microbeads found in toothpaste. We received numerous interesting and important comments to the post; and despite reasurances that these are safe particles (by Health Canada), many dentists are still questioning the use of these microbeads:

"I have been finding these specs of blue plastic stuck in my patient's periodontal pockets and embedded in their gingiva. Even if they are inert, having these particles embedded in soft tissue could cause inflammation and irritation. It is possible to assume if they are embedding in the mouth they also embed in the folds of the digestive tract. Therefore, I have been advising patients to avoid toothpastes with these ingredients. I am interested to hear if others have had similar findings."
