Gum Health and Your Good Bacteria

Good andBad Bacteria

Did you know that your mouth has both good and bad bacteria? The good bacteria help produce saliva to keep your gums, bone, and teeth healthy. Excessive plaque bacteria create acidic saliva. Acidity leads to gum disease and tooth loss.

Healthy gums

I'm sure you have seen ads for mouthwash claiming to treat Gingivitis by killing 99% of bacteria. These products kill more good bacteria than bad. Our products don't kill bacteria. They starve the harmful bacteria and nourish the good bacteria. Starve the bad. Feed the good. Your mouth will return to its normal, healthy, neutral to slightly alkaline state.
