Proven Efficacy: Tooth & Gums Tonic vs. Chlorhexidine
In a 12-week trial, the University of Rochester, Eastman Institute for Oral Health, compared the effects of Tooth & Gums Tonic and 0.12% chlorhexidine on gingival index (GI), plaque index (PI), pocket probing depth (PD) and reducing the levels of whole mouth and tongue malodor over a three month period.
The results of this study indicate that Tooth & Gums Tonic is as effective as chlorhexidine in reducing dental plaque, gingival inflammation and oral malodor.(Malmström, 2007)
