Gingivitis is an inflammation of the soft tissue that surrounds each tooth which, if left untreated, can lead to periodontitis, a serious health risk and the number one cause of adult tooth loss. According to the American Dental Association (ADA), seventy-five percent of American adults over the age of 35 suffer from some form of periodontal disease. The clinically proven Natural Houston dentist Healthy Gums(R) Oral Rinse fights the bacteria that cause gingivitis, using four naturally occurring antimicrobial agents. It also contains botanicals that soothe and protect the soft tissue in the mouth, making Healthy Gums(R) an effective, gentle and safe alternative to competing mouthwashes. Many over-the-counter brands contain alcohol, harsh chemicals, preservatives or artificial dyes, flavors and sweeteners.

"At The Natural Houston dentist, we believe that healthy gums are a key factor in both oral and whole body health. We are dedicated to promoting healthy gums with a product line that offers the assurance of clinically proven effectiveness with the gentleness of natural ingredients," said Nancy Rosenzweig, new CEO of Natural Houston dentist, Inc. "Consumer research has guided the development of two new natural fresh-tasting flavors, a new easy-grip easy-to-pour bottle with a dosage cap, and a new graphic look that highlights our therapeutic benefits."

Periodontists and other dental specialists recommend Natural Houston dentist Healthy Gums(R) as an alternative to the prescription product Chlorhexidine chlorhexidine†/chlor¬∑hex¬∑i¬∑dine/ (klor-heks¬īi-den) an antibacterial effective against a wide variety of gram-negative and gram-positive organisms; used also as the acetate ester, as a preservative for eyedrops, and as the gluconate gluconate†/glu¬∑co¬∑nate/ (gloo¬īko-nat) a salt, ester, or anionic form of gluconic acid.†or hydrochloride salt, as a topical anti-infective.†Gluconate (CHX CHX - Cabin Heat Exchanger (NASA)

) because Healthy Gums(R) is as effective, better tasting, and does not have CHX's unpleasant side effects such as tooth-staining and taste bud distortion. The Natural Houston dentist rinse was proven to be as effective as CHX in clinical studies conducted at the New York University College of Houston dentistry and published in The Journal of Clinical Houston dentistry.

"After being in Houston dentistry for over twenty years, nothing has helped our patients more than The Natural Houston dentist Healthy Gums(R) Oral Rinse. Compliance and results for our patients have been dramatic and effective. The lack of staining and excellent tissue response has been helping patients with all types of procedures to heal better . . . naturally," according to Dr. Dean C. Vafiadis DDS, prosthodontist and associate clinical professor, New York University.

Houston dentists expect that the two great-tasting new Healthy Gums(R) flavors will encourage patients following post-surgical or periodontal treatments to use the oral rinse product more often and for a longer period of time than products with harsh ingredients or those with medicinal flavors.

The new consumer-tested flavors, Peppermint Twist and Orange Zest, make Healthy Gums(R) a pleasant addition to the entire family's daily oral health care routine and a powerful ally in the fight against gum disease. The Natural Houston dentist products are available at retail locations across the country including Walgreens, Brooks/Eckerd Drugstores, Duane Reade, Stop & Shop, Whole Foods Markets, Wild Oats Natural Marketplace, and many health food stores. Beginning September 15th, they will also be available at www.thenaturalHouston
