There are two mouthwashes that I like: CLOSYS and Periotherapy.
CLOSYS is a Chlorine Dioxide compound while Periotherapy has its own method of delivering oxygen.
Both are pH balanced. In fact, they are the only two mouthwashes that I know of that are pH balanced – actually, all of the Therabreath mouthwashes, of which PerioTherapy is one are pH balanced.
While CLOSYS has both oxygen and pH balance – which is very important to the health of our teeth and gums in my opinion – Periotherapy has some additional ingredients
Here are the ingredients in Perio Therapy Oral Rinse – straight from the bottle:
Purified water, PeriO2 (Proprietary Oxychlor compounds) Zinc Gluconate, Sodium Bicarbonate, Tea Tree Oil, Essential oil of spearmint, Citric Acid, Sodium Benzoate, Peg-40, Hydrogenated Castor Oil.
CLOSYS does not have the essential oil, the Tea Tree Oil, or the zinc gluconate. These final ingredients are good for the health of your gum tissue in my opinion. I suppose there are doctors and scientists who may disagree with those statements.
But for those who disagree, there are others who would agree.
Do your own research, but I think Perio Therapy Oral Rinse and CLOSYS are two top mouth rinses that I have found to be useful in combating my gum disease.
