What Can PerioSciences Antioxidant Products do for Your Smile?
The PerioSciences approach is to work in concert with the body’s natural defense system in the oral cavity. Saliva has natural antioxidants and natural anti-bacterial agents. The antioxidants in PerioSciences products complement those in saliva, and our polyphenol components work with the saliva’s antimicrobial agents. Altogether, our natural ingredients are gentle on soft oral tissue, but provide powerful plant-based antioxidants and polyphenols to enhance the salivary system.
Antioxidant-rich oral products can neutralize free radicals in your mouth. The main threat comes from the damage they can do when they react with DNA, or the cell membrane. Cells may function poorly or die if this occurs. To prevent free radical damage the body has a defense system of antioxidants. Antioxidants can interact with free radicals and terminate the breakdown before vital molecules are damaged. The main micronutrient (vitamin) antioxidants are vitamin E, beta-carotene, and vitamin C. Those free radicals could put significant oxidative stress on your mouth that could be destroying your teeth and gums, as well as causing bacteria which results in bad breath. If left untreated, the bacteria will lead to or accelerate the progress of gum disease.In addition to antioxidant products helping foster a healthier environment in your mouth, PerioSciences products are available in gel, rinse formula and toothpaste to help you with a variety of oral concerns, including sensitive teeth, dry mouth, and teeth whitening.
