There is an ancient Ayurvedic practice of “oil pulling” that has been used as a remedy for oral health problems. It involves the use of pure oils such as cold pressed sesame oil, coconut oil, and sunflower oil. Approximately one tablespoon is taken in the mouth and “swished around” (pushed and pulled through the teeth) for 10-15 minutes and then carefully spit out followed by a thorough rinsing to ensure that all bacteria and toxins are discharged to avoid being reabsorbed. Claimed benefits include strengthening of teeth and gums, prevention of cavities and gingivitis, prevention of bad breath, potential remedy for bleeding gums and other possible benefits beyond the mouth. The biggest challenge with the practice of oil pulling is that most people find it extremely difficult to keep moving the oil in their mouth for the recommended 10 to 15 minutes it takes for the treatment to be effective.
We believe we have an excellent alternative to “oil pulling”; simply use Perfect Smile’s alcohol-free Mouthwash in addition to your normal brushing and flossing routine. Our Mouthwash contains three tremendously beneficial ingredients to promote oral health; MicroActive CoQ10, Xylitol and Vitamin C.
As we all know, in the days going back to Christopher Columbus, sailors were routinely afflicted with scurvy, a disease caused by a lack of vitamin C that caused gums to bleed and teeth to fall out. Perfect Smile Mouthwash contains Vitamin C in the form of sodium ascorbyl phosphate, a highly bioavailable, more stable and longer-lasting form of Vitamin C.
Xylitol is another key ingredient in Perfect Smile Mouthwash. Xylitol has been proven in numerous clinical studies to reduce dental plaque with its anti-microbial properties that kills bacteria, especially the most harmful Streptoccus mutans.
Most importantly, Perfect Smile Mouthwash contains MicroActive® CoQ10, proven to build strong, healthy cells that help to prevent and reverse the symptoms of gum disease. CoQ10 has demonstrated in numerous clinical studies to effectively treat gum disease. And, the MicroActive form of CoQ10 used in Perfect Smile products is a water soluble complex that delivers maximum benefit to gum tissue because of its superior bioavailability. In addition, our Mouthwash contains zinc lactate which kills the volatile sulfur compounds that typically cause bad breath.
Here at Perfect Smile, we are always “pulling” for our customers to achieve perfect oral health. So as an integral part of a complete oral care program, we recommend “swishing” Perfect Smile Mouthwash for 1-3 minutes following brushing and/or flossing. This will allow the Xylitol to kill bad bacteria while the gums are absorbing the Vitamin C and MicroActive CoQ10.
To help you get started on this recommended procedure, we have reduced the price of our CoQ10 Mouthwash by $1.50 per bottle at all quantity levels now through March 31st.
