An ingestible toothpaste was tested during the course of a simulated space flight conducted to study the effect on man of living in an atmosphere of approximately 100 oxygen. Four young male adults spent 43 days in a space cabin simulator at a pressure equivalent to 27,000 ft. of altitude. The dental phase was to determine the acceptability of the ingestible toothpaste and whether any change in the oral health of the subjects took place as a result of the flight. The ingestible toothpaste was acceptable however, because of the small number of subjects, results were inconclusive as to the effectiveness of the oral hygiene protocol. Author
