3 Reasons to Choose a Chlorine Dioxide Toothpaste

3 Reasons to Choose a Chlorine Dioxide Toothpaste

We all want the upper hand, er, smile, when it comes to caring for our pearly whites. Toothpaste with chlorine dioxide is just what the dentist ordered to give you that advantage.

Wait, chlorine dioxide? Isn’t that like bleach or the chemical you put in pools?

We get it. If you’re like a lot of people, the words “chlorine dioxide” don’t exactly give you the warm-fuzzies. But don’t let first impressions stop you from learning more about this unique ingredient. Chlorine dioxide is non-toxic, not bleach and definitely not the stuff you dump in your pool!

You’ll also discover why chlorine dioxide toothpaste stands out from the toothpaste crowd, and three key ways it can benefit your beautiful smile.

3 Ways Chlorine Dioxide Can Make a Positive Change in Your Dental Care

Even though chlorine dioxide has the word “chlorine” in its name, they’re not the same thing! They’re molecularly different and act differently. Chlorine dioxide toothpaste is a powerful oxidizer yet is gentle, safe and non-toxic. Oxyfresh patented a special blend of chlorine dioxide, calling it Oxygene® more than 40 years ago. It's been improving breath and brightening smiles since! Here are 3 ways it can be a game-changer for your smile …

#1. Provides Unrivaled Breath Protection

Chlorine dioxide is activated in toothpaste when it enters an acidic environment … aka, your mouth! In just 60 seconds, it completely oxidizes (neutralizes) bad breath molecules. This is a safe and gentle process with no byproducts produced. Compare this to all those toothpastes with harsh, artificial mint flavors, which only mask bad breath instead of actually getting rid of it. If you often feel like you have bad breath even after brushing, switching to a chlorine dioxide toothpaste can be a total game-changer.

#2. Chlorine Dioxide Toothpaste Can Penetrate Biofilm

Biofilm is a techy term for the thin, sticky layer of bacteria that collects plaque and tartar on the teeth. This can lead to cavities, gingivitis, and periodontal disease – all things that can be tough on your wallet, your confidence, and even your overall health. Chlorine dioxide is able to penetrate biofilm, giving you a deeper level of clean and better plaque removal versus toothpastes without this special ingredient.

#3. Safe & Gentle to Pamper Your Gums

Toothpastes should pamper the gums, not irritate them. Chlorine dioxide is powerful at stopping harmful bacteria but gentle, safe and non-drying on delicate gum tissue – and, it doesn’t upset the balance of the good bacteria in the mouth. Compare this to alcohol, which takes a “no-holds-barred approach” to bacteria and can damage gum tissue and cause dry mouth, ironically leading to even worse bad breath.
