Stannous Fluoride

One of the main causes of bleeding gums is the buildup of plaque bacteria. Stannous fluoride is a chemical compound that helps kill bacteria in the mouth. It’s also the active ingredient in parodontaxTM, a toothpaste specially formulated with stannous fluoride to remove and kill plaque, prevent dental cavities, and is clinically proven to help reduce bleeding gums.

Triclosan

Some toothpastes in the US use an ingredient known as triclosan, which has been shown to help prevent gingivitis. It should be noted that parodontaxTM does not contain this ingredient.

 

Enjoyable Flavor

When you enjoy the flavor of your toothpaste, it’s much easier to stick to good oral care routines. Flavors like Clean Mint and Extra Fresh from parodontaxTM leave your mouth feeling clean and your breath fresh, while the stannous fluoride keeps your gums healthy.
