Biotene is the only toothpaste in the world that works like the body’s natural defenses to fight cavities, periodontal disease and oral infections due to Dry Mouth.
Biotène contains three primary enzymes – Glucose Oxidase, Lactoperoxidase, and Lysozyme, which are carefully balanced for a special function in boosting and replenishing saliva’s own defenses. When used daily, Biotène reduces harmful bacteria, but leaves beneficial bacteria necessary for healthy teeth and oral tissues.
How to Use:
Use in place of your regular toothpaste. Rinse toothbrush in water before applying Biotène. Brush for two minutes, rinse lightly. For best results, use first thing in the morning, after eating, and at bedtime. It is important not to skip brushing because the enzymes in Biotène can fully help give your mouth a healthy balance of bacteria.
No Sodium Lauryl Sulfate:
- Recent reports suggest that some people get fewer canker sores when they switch to a toothpaste that doesn’t contain sodium lauryl sulfate (SLS).
- Researchers speculate that SLS dries out the protective mucous lining in the mouth…making it vulnerable to irritants that lead to canker sores.
- SLS is a detergent that is in almost all toothpastes, dishwashing soaps and body washes.
- Adults & children prone to canker sores should try an SLS-free toothpaste.
Salivary antibacterial enzymes:
Biotène & Oralbalance Contain The Lactoperoxidase Enzyme System
The Mouth’s naturally occurring protective system comes from three pairs of salivary glands. When, for any reason, the amount of saliva is disrupted, this important antibacterial defense system is lost.
Only Biotène patented salivary enzyme products are capable of protecting the mouth the same way in which saliva does!
The doctor or dentist might suggest which products to use depending upon what is causing Dry Mouth.
