Produce Profile: Orbit® Prophy Paste and Gum Packs by Young Dental and Wrigley

Improve polishing experience with an innovative approach by Young Dental and Wrigley

While many patients love to chew gum, some may dread routine dental appointments. Young Dental and Wrigley are hoping to change this, with the introduction of Wrigley’s Orbit Prophy Paste and Gum co-packs. This first-of-its-kind product lets patients experience the signature flavors of Orbit gum both during and after their dental appointments.


Each co-pack contains a single-dose cup of Orbit-flavored prophy paste in the brand’s bubblemint, spearmint, or peppermint flavors, and a piece of corresponding Orbit sugar-free gum. The new Orbit Prophy Paste has a smooth, rich consistency that effectively removes stain and easily rinses away.

The companies believe this unique product will create a treat-like experience during routine dental care, with patients receiving the flavor-coordinated gum at the culmination of their dental office visit.


When brushing isn’t possible, chewing sugar-free gum like Orbit stimulates saliva, which helps to neutralize plaque acids and maintain tooth remineralization. More than just a free sample, when dental professionals provide the Orbit sugar-free gum, they’re offering patients a fun way to help keep teeth clean while on the go. This co-packaging also provides an additional opportunity for dental hygienists to talk to their patients about oral hygiene, and the benefits provided by chewing sugar-free gum.
