The new Pro-Expert toothpaste from Oral-B is remarkable not only in delivering protection against gum problems, plaque, caries, calculus formation, erosion and dentinal hypersensitivity, but also because it has been shown to reduce oral malodour due to its antibacterial activity and capture of breath malodour molecules.
Breath malodour results from Volatile Sulphur Compounds (VSCs) produced by certain bacteria particularly residing on the tongue.
Oral-B Pro-Expert toothpaste uses the stannous fluoride in its unique combination of polyphosphate and stabilised stannous fluoride to fight the bacteria that produce VSCs by both eliminating them and inhibiting their metabolism.
Stannous fluoride complex can also capture the VSCs produced by the bacteria and make them odourless.
This dual approach ensures that the bacteria and their adverse effects in the mouth are reduced, helping to prevent the causes of oral malodour.
By inhibiting plaque growth and bacterial adhesion, stannous fluoride helps prevent the build-up of microbes that are known to exacerbate oral malodour by accumulating in periodontally affected pockets as well as multiplying on the tongue.
The overall benefits of good oral health promoted by use of new Oral-B Pro-Expert toothpaste are further enhanced by fresh breath and a confident smile.
