PerioBiotic Probiotic Toothpaste features Dental-Lac™, a patent pending functional lactobacillus dental hygiene probiotic not found in any other toothpaste product. Research on Dental-Lac™, a specific Lactobacillus paracasei strain, has shown that it competes with unhealthy strains of oral bacteria including streptococcus mutans, thereby helping to maintain healthy teeth and gums. Like probiotics in the human intestinal tract, beneficial flora in the mouth are critical to maintaining dental and oral health.
PerioBiotic Probiotic Toothpaste also contains xylitol and calcium glycerophosphate, two active ingredients that have been shown in research to promote dental and oral health.
What’s not in PerioBiotic Probiotic Toothpaste does matter…
The ingredients NOT found in PerioBiotic™ Toothpaste, which are found in most other toothpastes, include fluoride, sodium lauryl sulfate (SLS), and saccharin. Also, this product is not harmful if swallowed as it does not contain fluoride.
The problem with too much flouride
The most recognized problem with the ingestion of too much fluoride is dental fluorosis. This condition is characterized by the failure of tooth enamel to crystallize properly in permanent teeth. The effects range from chalky, opaque blotching of teeth to severe, rust-colored stains, surface pitting and tooth brittleness.
Recommended Use: Apply PerioBiotic™ toothpaste onto a soft bristle toothbrush. Brush thoroughly after meals for at least 1 minute. Spit out the excess solution, and for maximum benefits do not rinse to allow for longer contact of the natural ingredients to the teeth and gums. Designs For Health
