Plaque, Cavities and Strep Bacteria
- Posted on: Nov 30 2010
Saliva leaves deposits on your teeth, called a pellicle layer. Certain bacteria in the mouth will stick to the pellicle and form colonies. This is how dental plaque forms, and plaque is the most widely recognized precursor to oral disease.
80% of bacteria that colonize dental plaque are cocci, such as Streptococcus sanguinis and Streptococcus mutans. Strep such as these produce acids that de-mineralize tooth enamal and lead to the development of dental caries, tooth decay and infection of the gum tissue.
In several studies, CloSYS products have been shown to kill these Strep species quickly, within 10 seconds, and thoroughly, 100%. Regular use of CloSYS can halt the presence and growth of these Strep species in the mouth. Lower amounts of these Strep can reduce plaque, inhibit de-mineralization of tooth enamal, and help stop the onset of gum disease and tooth decay.
CloSYS products are available for purchase from The Hills Dental Spa. Try the toothpast and mouthwash in a started kit for just $25.
