Recent clinical trials demonstrate that the blend of healthful probiotic bacteria in EvoraPlus™ replenished daily, literally ‘crowds out’ the harmful bacteria responsible for tooth decay, gum disease & bad breath.
At the same time these oral probiotics produce a gentle dose of hydrogen peroxide that whitens teeth.
The result of more than 25 years of research, which began at the Harvard-affiliated Forsyth Institute in Boston and continued at the University of Florida, the EvoraPlus technology has only recently become available for the general public.
Probiotic Mix ‘Crowds Out’ Bacteria Harmful to Teeth
The ProBiora3™ probiotic blend in EvoraPlus mints binds to the surface of the teeth, crowding out harmful bacteria by competing for the same nutrients and surface spaces. With daily use, these beneficial bacteria – the natural residents of very healthy mouths – colonize to provide a constant and expanding protective population, and crowd out the problematic, harmful bacteria.
Permeates Beneath the Gum Line Quickly, Clinical Studies Show
Studies have shown that after 30 days of using EvoraPlus these probiotics have permeated beneath the gum line and become established in the periodontal pocket.
Clinical trials showed that using EvoraPlus twice daily can substantially reduce the levels of both dental and periodontal pathogens in the mouth. The studies found that the levels of periodontal pathogens were reduced in plaque samples taken from below the gum line, at the bottom of the periodontal pocket.(1)
Works Where Mouthwash and Toothpaste Can’t
Existing mouthwashes and toothpastes that typically contain an antibacterial agent are able to affect only those areas of the mouth that the rinse is able to directly contact, which limits their effectiveness to contact with plaque above the gum line.
Furthermore, the antibacterial agent is quickly washed from the mouth, while the EvoraPlus bacteria have a prolonged duration of contact with disease-susceptible surfaces in the mouth, and thus a prolonged beneficial activity.
This is crucial because if harmful bacteria are allowed to over-populate and colonize deep into the periodontal pocket beneath the gum line, the oral imbalance creates the conditions for poor oral health and advanced periodontal disease. To address this, it is increasingly more common as well as very painful and expensive to have a dentist clean teeth below the gum line.
Research has revealed that even after the aggressive process of scaling to clean out the periodontal pockets, the future oral health of the patient is determined by the type of bacteria that colonizes first in the base of that clean pocket.(2)
If the bad bacteria are there first, the unhealthy condition will quickly return. If the beneficial bacteria are first, then good oral health will be established. EvoraPlus can provide significant results by rebalancing the oral flora in a simple, painless, non-invasive daily routine. No other product impacts oral health below the gum line to get to the root of the problem.
Avoid the Indiscriminate Damage & Imbalance Caused by Antibacterials
Antibacterial mouthwashes and breath fresheners promote killing up to 99.9% of bacteria and germs in the mouth. These products indiscriminately wipe out both the essential, good bacteria along with the harmful bacteria.
Within one to two hours after using antibacterial mouthwash or breath freshener, the surviving 0.1% of the bacteria remaining in the mouth can repopulate the full level of harmful bacteria that was present in the mouth before the product was used.(2)
This indiscriminate destruction of bacteria creates ongoing imbalances in the microflora that naturally inhabit the oral cavity and support the first step in healthy digestion.
Whiten Teeth Naturally
Yellowing, surface discoloration or staining are all results of lifestyle choices: tobacco use, coffee, tea, beets, etc. Anything that that will stain a white T-shirt will affect the color of the teeth, because tooth enamel is porous, filled with microscopic cracks and pores that hold onto staining products.
• Commercial tooth whiteners employ extremely high levels of chemical hydrogen peroxide which can actually damage the tooth and create a roughness on the tooth's surface.
• This increases the film that builds up on the tooth surfaces and in the micro cracks and is available to hold on to stains.
But the probiotics included in EvoraPlus are specifically formulated to safely and constantly release a low level of natural hydrogen peroxide as a normal by-product. This continuous low dose of hydrogen peroxide naturally whitens teeth without creating tooth sensitivity or gum irritation.
As these probiotics are replenished daily, they create a gradual whitening with the full benefits of long contact times, delivering 24-hour coverage of balancing and brightening.
Create the Condition Needed for Sweet, Healthy Breath
The key to beating bad breath is keeping the bad bacteria that inhabit the mouth in check. The blend of beneficial bacteria incorporated in EvoraPlus are natural antagonists of odor-creating bacteria in the mouth, working quickly to create and sustain the healthy balance of microflora that results in longer lasting, truly fresher breath.
By both binding to the teeth and permeating deep beneath the gum line, the beneficial bacteria work to inhibit and exclude destructive bacteria from overpopulating and creating imbalances in the mouth.
Twice Daily Use of EvoraPlus…
Can help safely maintain and promote oral health by normalizing the balance of the indigenous flora in favor of microorganisms associated with healthy teeth, healthy periodontal or gum tissues, and fresh breath – while gently whitening teeth.
