Oral Science Launches X-PUR CariØ, a 25% Xylitol Formulation Toothpaste Reducing Cariogenic Bacteria

Oral Science is proud to continue offering dental professionals effective and innovative home-care solutions for caries management by launching X-PUR CariØ, a 25% Xylitol formulation toothpaste scientifically proven to reduce cariogenic bacteria.

Since the 50’s, fluoride is the most widely used therapeutic agent in toothpaste. For adults and children highly infected by cariogenic bacteria (100,000 Streptococcus mutans / mL of saliva), which represents a high percentage of patients, fluoride toothpaste will remineralize, but might not offer optimal removal of cariogenic bacteria.

This is why, more than 12 years ago, Dr. Jacques Véronneau, clinician, researcher and one of the only cariologists in Canada, began his journey to identify a therapeutic agent able to reduce the cariogenic bacteria load.

The results of his studies were really conclusive;

Compared to a fluoride toothpaste, this formulation was able to offer

  • 60% less lesions
  • 80% less cavitated lesions
  • 40% more remineralized lesions

X-PUR CariØ also offers many benefits to patients

  • Granted an Health Canada NPN license to help prevent cavities
  • Fluoride-free
  • Free of sodium lauryl sulfate, gluten & GMO
  • For adults and children
  • Light spearmint taste
  • Low abrasivity & neutral pH
  • Free of harmful plastic particles
  • Gel form
