The Prevention Formula

The Prevention formula contains active ingredients designed to reduce inflammation, manage plaque buildup, control microorganisms, diminish mouth sores, and soothe gum tissue:

  • Zinc Chloride (ZnCl)- controls plaque and cavities. ZnCl binds to bacteria and prevents adherence to tooth surfaces.
  • Sodium Lauryl Sulfate (SLS) – surfactant. SLS magnifies anti-plaque properties of Zinc Chloride three-fold.
  • Hydrogen Peroxide (H2O2)- disinfectant. H2O2 controls microorganisms associated with dental disease.
  • Sodium Citrate- astringent. Sodium citrate manages tissue inflammation, helps to heal mouth sores, and reduces dental sensitivity.
  • Glycerin-humectant. Glycerin moisturizes and reduces skin irritation to control abrasions or lesions in the mouth.

Working together, these ingredients reduce the etiological factors of dental disease to promote healthy teeth and gums!


Safety and Research

PREVENTION ™ has undergone extensive research regarding the safety and efficacy of Prevention Mouth Rinse. Studies were conducted through accredited research institutions including: the University of Louisville, the University of Iowa, and the University of South Carolina.
Studies confirm that Prevention mouth rinse is a potent antimicrobial that rapidly kills and/or inhibits the growth of oral pathogens including:

  • S. mutans and A. actinomycetemcomitans – the primary microorganisms linked to dental cavities.
  • B. gingivitisP. gingivalis, and F. nucleatum – anaerobic bacteria associated with periodontal disease.
  • Candida albicans -yeast associated with oral infections including thrush and denture stomatitis.

In addition, Prevention mouth rinse exhibits substantivity and continues to be effective 8+ hours after use.
These studies demonstrate the unique properties of Prevention mouth rinse that kill oral pathogens upon contact, render dental plaque benign, reduce formation of new plaque, and remain effective after use.
