Dentists estimate that 80% of us develop gum disease in our lifetimes. If left untreated, however, gum disease may progress to other oral health issues, including tooth loss, and other studies and experts have also linked gum disease to heart disease, stroke, breast cancer and respiratory diseases.
And some of the risk factors for developing gingivitis include:
Poor dental hygiene
Pregnancy/puberty/menopause (hormonal changes increase the sensitivity of the gums)
Genetics/family history (30% of general population susceptible to gum disease)
And the early warning symptoms are gum inflammation and bleeding (pink in the sink). If you have these symptoms or have a family history of gum disease, you should see a denist and stick to a regular at home care regimen.
Contains Aloe Vera gel as its active ingredient to help prevent bleeding gums.
Also contains other natural medicinal components such as Echinacea, goldenseal, calendula, and grapefruit seed extract that help calm gum inflammation
My Review: Personally I like that the product contains natural ingredients. Previously I had not tried a mouth wash like that, so I found this feature very interesting, and I was very intrigued that aloe vera was the active ingredient.
Another thing that attracts me to the product is that it doesn't burn your mouth like a lot of other mouth washes. I don't always like to use mouthwash or don't always use it properly (as in, I don't use the right amount, or I don't rinse for the right amount of time) because I can't endure the burning sensation, but with the Natural Dentist brand you don't have this problem.
I tried the Peppermint Twist Flavor. The taste is very different from other mouth washes, and kind of hard to describe. I'd compare it to the difference between an at-home fluoride or prescription toothpaste versus your basic everyday toothpaste.
