    ACT is the brand name of a fluoride rinse.

    As Lilac said, ACT is a fluoride rinse. It's one of the components of the Dr. Ellie program mentioned in the first post of this thread.

    Has anybody found a more affordable/avaliable version of the ACT in the UK?

    Bumping this to ask, anyone had success with xylitol and Listerine only?

    I did it all by the book for the first six months and then got to the point where my mouth felt good enough to transition to mainly closys and crest toothpaste. I have listerine and ACT but only use those a couple times per week. I can’t remember the last time I used xylitol. It works but it seems to stain my teeth.

    I have dropped the Listerine from my routine but continue to use xylitol both before and after I brush my teeth. Xylitol seems to have positive health benefits. Incidentally, my last dental checkups have all be great.
