High Strength Sodium Fluoride

The #1 high strength fluoride rinses recommended by dental professionals

Professionals Consumers

Mechanism of action

Calcium is attracted by the receptor sites, forming calcium fluoride. The fluoride ion then combines with the calcium ion to form calcium fluoride, adding to the hydroxyapatite (97 % of enamel and 70 % of dentin) of the tooth, thus making it more resistant to acid dissolution.

Benefits

  • Alcohol free
  • Neutral pH
  • No side effects: permanent tooth discolouration, taste alteration, calculus formation and irritation
  • Sweetened with 10 % xylitol for a delightful and refreshing taste
  • Reduces by 99.999% S. mutans (caries), S. sobrinus (rampant caries), P. gingivalis (periodontitis), C. albicans (xerostomia)

Indications

  • Anti caries
  • Helps prevent/reduce plaque and gingivitis
  • Helps to remineralize tooth enamel (which helps against xerostomia)

X-PUR Compared to Chlorhexidine

Problem: A bacteria blamed for rapid tooth decay if S. Sobrinus is present with S. Mutans, your patients are at risk for rampant tooth decay.

Tooth decay is bad enough when it is caused by Streptococcus mutans, a common bacterium that forms tartar. But tooth decay is even worse if S. mutans is joined by a relatively rare bacterium, Streptococcus sobrinus. When S. sobrinus is present, the sugars we eat are converted into acids more quickly, acceleraMng the decalcification of teeth and the formation of cavities.

Details of this work appeared July 26 2018 in the journal Microbial Resource Announcements, in an article titled, Complete genomic sequences of Streptococcus sobrinus SL14.

Solution: X-PUR Opti-Rinse 0.05% & 0.2% sodium fluoride rinses, same antimicrobial efficacy as chlorhexidine.

Testimonials

I have lousy teeth. This product, along with avoiding added sugars in food, keeps my dental problems to a minimum. For people like me you need to get the .05. Fluoride.

- R. Caron, a patient

I learned about this mouthwash at my dentist after a really bad spate of cavities, crowns, and an extraction. I use it every night last thing and then do not wash out my mouth or eat anything. My dental appointments are having much better results. This is a must-have product for me now.

- Guitarwoman, a patient
