The essential oil based Tonic is alcohol-free, non-staining, and meets the growing demand for natural products. Consultants prescribed Tooth & Gums Tonic® for its full range of indications and found it was very easy for patients to integrate into their oral care routines, enhancing compliance. The majority used it for treatment of inflammation/gingivitis and associated halitosis. Tooth & Gums Tonic® has a strong mint taste that was liked by most users, but some found the taste to be too intense.

Orthodontists found it useful to reduce gingivitis around brackets without causing staining like chlorhexidine.
