  • How does parodontax toothpaste work?

    Plaque bacteria constantly builds up on, around and in between your teeth. If this is not removed it can irritate the gums and cause inflammation. If left untreated this can get worse and may cause halitosis, receding gums and more serious gum problems.

    Unlike a regular fluoride toothpaste parodontax is specially formulated with sodium bicarbonate. As you brush, this penetrates the layer of plaque bacteria to help break it up and make it easier to remove.

    By physically removing the build-up of bacteria along the gum line, parodontax toothpaste helps to keep the seal between gums and teeth tight.
