Why is mouthcare important?


Your sugar-saturated saliva constantly bathes your teeth and gums and is the perfect food for harmful germs which can help plaque to develop.

High levels of plaque can lead to tooth decay, tooth loss and early gum disease, known as gingivitis. Gingivitis is the leading cause of tooth loss and if left untreated can lead to periodontitis – advanced gum disease. As a person living with diabetes, the high levels of sugar in your saliva can make gingivitis occur faster than it normally would.

So, no matter how careful you are about avoiding sugary foods or drinks, if you have diabetes you are very prone to developing tooth decay and gum disease. And because your natural healing mechanisms are impaired, it is more difficult for you to fight these oral infections. To make matters worse, it’s a vicious circle

Research shows that gum disease can have a negative effect on your blood sugars too.

So, it makes sense to take steps to control gum disease as early as possible because this can help improve your blood sugar levels too.

Day and night, four simple steps is all it takes.


Brush your teeth twice a day for 2 minutes each time with AnOxident balance® Glucose-control Toothpaste. Then floss or use interdental brushes to clean between your teeth.


Rinse with AnOxident balance® Glucose-control Oral Rinse. DO NOT RINSE WITH WATER.


Control the build-up of excess salivary glucose during the day and alleviate oral dryness with AnOxident balance® Oral Spray in between brushings.


For through-the-night glucose control and dry mouth relief, apply a thin coat of AnOxident balance® Oral Gel to gums and tongue before going to sleep.


The AnOxident balance range comprises 4 medical device oral care products clinically proven to help improve oral health by: regulating the levels of glucose in the mouth, guarding against plaque (biofilm) accumulation, boosting important anti-oxidants and stabilising the oral micro-environment.

Ex-vivo clinical study demonstrates that it is possible to eliminate excess glucose in diabetic saliva and attain a concentration similar to the level of that existing in the non-diabetic subjects.

A toothpaste containing a mixture of milk-derived agents was shown to produce the optimum saturation of bacteria- inhibiting mechanisms within 15 seconds and to remain active in reducing the presence of plaque and in removing colonized (biofilm) bacteria for +/- 6 hours.

Formulated with bio-active plant- and milk-derived compounds, the AnOxident balance® medical device products closely mimic and support your mouth’s natural protective mechanisms, thereby encouraging a healthy oral environment, the way nature intends.

Lactoferrin-NFQ® and APO Lactoferrin-NFQ®, derived from milk, are highly active forms of this health-promoting molecule.

Lactoferrin occurs naturally in breast milk, saliva and tears. It is also plays an important role in your primary defence system. In the mouth Lactoferrin is one of the most important antimicrobial agents where it promotes the growth of healthy flora, helping to prevent infection.

Cucumis Melo is a highly effective, plant-derived source of Superoxide Dismutase (SOD). Cucumis Melo has been shown to be an effective anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidant agent. SOD is an important antioxidant defence mechanism which occurs naturally in the body, including the oral cavity, as a defence against free radical damage.

Milk Protein Extract (MPE™) is a mix of proteins which, due to the DUOX system, has been shown to have a regulatory effect on your mouth’s pH by forming a barrier to excess salivary glucose.

The DUOX System acts as a barrier to neutralise the damaging, acidic environment which can occur as a result of excess salivary glucose.

Xylitol has been clinically proven to be have an important action in dental products where it helps regulate oral microflora, allowing the less harmful bacteria to dominate and reduce acidic conditions which are harmful to mouth health.
