Z-FRESH MOUTHWASH contains Chlorhexidine, Sodium Fluoride and Zinc.
• Chlorhexidine is a disinfectant and topical anti-infective agent to prevent oral plaque. It is antimicrobial and bactericidal.
• Sodium Fluoride is used to prevent cavities. It makes teeth more resistant to decay caused by acid and bacteria.
• Zinc Chloride is a necessary trace element in the diet, forming an essential part of many enzymes and playing an important role in protein synthesis and in cell division.
• Halitosis ( Bad Breath)
• Maintenance of Oral Hygiene
• Dental caries
• Pre & Post Procedures
• Dental Scaling and Sponging
Chlorhexidine is a chemical antiseptic. It kills (is bactericidal to) both gram-positive and gram-negative microbes, although it is less effective with some gram-negative microbes. It is also bacteriostatic.
The mechanism of action is membrane disruption. It also shows activity with enveloped viruses.
Sodium Fluoride - An anionic surface-active agent used for its wetting properties in industry and used in medicine as an irritant and sclerosing agent for hemorrhoids and varicose veins.
Zinc Chloride- Oral hygiene products containing metals, such as zinc chloride, are considered by some specialists to be among the most effective treatments for halitosis (bad breath).
Oral bacteria bind to surface proteins and metabolize the protein particles into sulfur gas. Sulfur is an organic compound that is often identified by its rotten egg smell. These sulfur gases give your breath an unpleasant odor. Zinc ions reduce the concentration of sulfur gases.
Zinc metal has the ability to neutralize bad breath temporarily. They don’t change the conditions in the mouth, and they don’t have any activity against the odour-producing bacteria themselves, therefore, once all of the metal has reacted with sulphur, or been rinsed from the mouth, the bad odour associated with halitosis returns. So the rest of the work is done by Chlorhexadine.
