Oralflora® chlorine dioxide mouth rinse against bad breath (halitosis)
Bad breath originates mainly from various products of bacterial metabolism such as amino acids, oral epithelial cells and white blood cells. The products of this metabolism include volatile sulfur compounds, indoles, skatoles, amines, and ammonia. VSCs are primarily hydrogen sulfide, methyl mercaptan, and dimethyl sulfur, which are believed to be the main cause of bad breath.
Some studies have shown that a wide variety of periodontal bacteria, including
- Aggregatibacter actinomycetemcomitans,
- Porphyromonas gingivalis,
- Fusobacterium nucleatum,
- Tannerella forsythia und
- Treponema denticola,
play an important role in the production of sulfur compounds and are closely related to bad breath. However, these bacteria can produce different amounts and ratios of sulfur compounds. Treating bad breath with mouthwash:
The bacteria that cause bad breath can be destroyed with the help of Oralflora® mouthwash with chlorine dioxide (CDL mouthwash against bad breath). This active ingredient should not be confused with chlorine in the mouthwash. Mouthwash with chlorine dioxide is a very good mouthwash against bad breath / halitosis, perhaps the best on the market. Very few manufacturers use the active ingredient chlorine dioxide, since insensitive containers are required to store chlorine dioxide. In addition, the active ingredient is sensitive to light. The cost-effectiveness of the use of chlorine dioxide is often impaired due to the complicated handling for manufacturers. Nevertheless, the effect of chlorine dioxide remains excellent for customers. To do this, the mouth rinse must be „rinsed“ with chlorine dioxide in the mouth and then spat out. The mouthwash can be gargled – as with Chlorhexidine mouthwashes. The Oralflora® mouthwash is alcohol-free. In addition, the Oralflora® mouthwash does not contain fluoride. In addition to the bactericidal effect, there is also a virucidal effect (against viruses). The mouthwash can also be referred to as follows:
- Mouthwash against tooth decay,
- Mouth rinse against periodontal disease,
- Mouthwash against oral thrush and
- Mouth rinse against gingivitis
- Mouthwash against tooth discoloration
- Mouthwash against plaque
There are many well-known studies from top journals that prove the effects of chlorine dioxide against halitosis. For example, throw this study listed.
The results show that a 0.1% chlorine dioxide mouthwash significantly reduces bad breath and the levels of sulfur compounds and CH3SH after 12 hours and after 2 weeks. In addition, this mouthwash is effective in reducing tongue coating and levels of gram-positive and gram-negative bacteria such as F. nucleatum, S. moorei, T. denticola and T. forsythia in saliva. According to the results, chlorine dioxide shows promise in treating bad breath / halitosis.
In addition, chlorine dioxide from Oralflora® is a lightening product – without hydrogen peroxide. This can be explained as follows: Chlorine dioxide reacts with the discoloration of the teeth and oxidizes them. This will dissolve the discoloration and lighten the tooth color. Oralflora® therefore offers an effective method of teeth whitening by using the mouthwash.
