Chances are you have a solid routine when it comes to oral hygiene. Brush, maybe floss, gargle, repeat. And you should continue to do all of those things.
You may even schedule regular, six-month dental cleanings. That’s great. Keep it up.
But for over half of American adults, that’s still not enough to ward off bad breath, gum disease or even overall health issues.
That’s because your toothbrush is a tool, as in just one tool, that can only do so much. When it comes to penetrating below the gum line, where open wounds and gum disease are known to thrive, you need more.
Custom trays, molded specifically to your mouth, are built with a patented seal that gently delivers bacteria-fighting hydrogen peroxide deep below your gums where a toothbrush simply can’t reach.
It’s the difference between a Band-Aid and a tourniquet.
And the best part is you’re in control. And it can be done in the comfort of your home.
The benefits are remarkable.
By treating gum disease in this non-invasive way, you can clear up infections that cause bleeding of the gums. This is important because bleeding gums can become a conduit for pathogens to enter your bloodstream and lead to larger issues like heart disease, diabetes and colorectal cancer.
Further, this treatment also brightens teeth and freshens breath.
So, keep brushing. Maybe get a new toothbrush while you’re thinking about it, but keep brushing. And know that the results you may be seeking can be achieved with a treatment that is almost as simple as brushing your teeth.
