Oral Science is pleased to announce that it is now offering, additionally to the 500 ML bottles, 1L bottles of its X-PUR Opti-Rinse Plus 0.05% NaF grape flavor and 0.2% NaF mint flavor as an alternative to chlorhexidine oral rinses.
In fact, an in-vitro study showed similar antibacterial effects than chlorhexidine against P. Gingivalis (gingivitis), S. Sobrinus (rampant cavities) and S. Mutans (cavities), but without side effects such as tooth discolouration, taste altering, calculus formation, and oral mucosa desquamation and irritation. 1
X-PUR Opti-Rinse Plus is a new enhanced version of the #1 high strength sodium fluoride home-care rinse recommended by Canadian dental professionals. X-PUR Opti-Rinse Plus offers 2 main enhancements.
#1: A New Patented and Highly Effective Formulation With Citrox® Targeting Gingivitis, Caries and Xerostomia
X-PUR Opti-Rinse Plus includes a new ingredient called Citrox®, which is a unique plant-based and patented antimicrobial bioflavonoid complex offering a powerful antimicrobial, antioxidant, antifungal, antiviral and anti-inflammatory effect.
Citrox® is extracted from bitter oranges which have been consumed by humans since the dawn of time. Apart from being all natural, organic and hypoallergenic, Citrox® is very effective at killing bacteria and viruses at very low concentration while breaking down bio film. This makes Citrox® an extremely powerful substance that can help patients maintain good oral hygiene practices in order to reduce the risk of future complications.
With Citrox®, your patients can feel safe as it is biodegradable, safe to handle, eco-friendly, alcohol-free, does not contain synthetic fragrances or colourants, and is also free of GMO, petrochemicals and allergenic substances.
#2: Health Canada Indication: Helps Prevent Plaque & Gingivitis
X-PUR Opti-Rinse Plus is not only a solution for your caries management protocol, but also for your periodontally involved patients, tackling inflammation in a profound way!
