Oral Science is pleased to present X-PUR CariØ Plus, a new version of it’s scientifically proven, Canadian-developed, 25% Xylitol toothpaste, now enhanced by CITROX®, a patented antimicrobial bioflavonoid complex. (1)
X-PUR CariØ works during the colonization and adhesion of the caries process to reduce the cariogenic bacteria load. For many years, studies have shown that the tooth decay causing bacteria are not able to metabolize xylitol, which results in an absence of lactic acid and polysaccharide production. This is why X-PUR CariØ is effective to prevent the caries process, reduce non-cavitated and cavitated lesions and remineralize.
What is CITROX®?
X-PUR CariØ Plus contains a new ingredient called Citrox®, a unique plant-based and patented antimicrobial bioflavonoid complex offering a powerful antimicrobial, antioxidant, antifungal, antiviral and anti-inflammatory effect.
Citrox® is extracted from bitter oranges which have been consumed by humans since the dawn of time. Apart from being all natural, organic and hypoallergenic, Citrox® is very effective at killing bacteria and viruses at very low concentration while breaking down biofilm. This makes Citrox® an extremely powerful substance that can help patients maintain good oral hygiene practices in order to reduce the risk of future complications.
Fifteen years ago, Dr. Jacques Véronneau, clinician, researcher and one of the only cariologist in Canada, began his journey to identify a therapeutic agent able to reduce the cariogenic bacteria load. The positive results gave him the desire to create X-PUR CariØ using the finest quality of xylitol.
Today, Dr. Véronneau is looking forward analyzing the effect of X-PUR CariØ on periodontal disease. An explanatory study of nine high-risk patients using X-PUR CariØ showed a 78% reduction of these bacteria after brushing for three months. Additional research will be achieved over the upcoming months!
