In the case of the same fluoride content, the anti-caries effect of the two components is theoretically similar, so from the point of view of caries prevention to choose, the two choices are the same. Judging from the whitening effect. Phosphate components can be combined with calcium ions in dental stones, which can effectively reduce the formation of dental stones, so as to achieve the effect of teeth whitening.
