Oral Care

Aseptix developed a range of patent-protected and alcohol free, antibacterial rinse liquids. These liquid formulas are proven effective against the most important pathogens causing oral cavity infections and halitosis (bad breadth). The most important difference with competing products in the market is the proven efficacy against bacteria, evidenced by independent laboratory studies and user-studies. Most products in the market have no efficacy against the bacteria or contain alcohols that dry the skin of the oral cavity (mucous membranes) and thereby worsening the problem. 

When an imbalance of the natural flora occurs each of these area’s can be subject to specific or less specific infections. Best-known ailments are halitosis or bad breath, caries, gingivitis, and periodontitis, and tonsilitis.

The products of Aseptix have proven effect against several microbes responsible for (a.o.) the following indications:

Periodontitis
Periodontitis occurs when inflammation or infection of the gums (gingivitis) is left. With time, plaque can spread and grow below the gum line. The toxins stimulate a chronic inflammatory response. Infection and inflammation spreads from the gums (gingiva) to the ligaments and bone that support the teeth. Loss of support causes the teeth to become loose and eventually fall out. Periodontitis is the primary cause of tooth loss in adults. B. gingivalis is frequently isolated from patients with advanced chronic periodontitis.

Halitosis
Halitosis or bad breath can affect 1 in 4 people. About 80% of responsible bacteria are localised on the tongue. In patients complaining of halitosis, a higher than normal amount if volatile sulphur compounds was detected in their breath. Halitosis patients have been much greater diversity of microbial species on their tongues. However due to the great variety it is difficult to pinpoint which species have the greatest contribution in the condition. Treatment with antimicrobial agents or mouthwashes resulted in a strong reduction of halitosis symptoms.

Caries
Dental caries is a localised chemical dissolution of the tooth surface caused by metabolic events taking place in the biofilm or dental plaque covering the affected area. Streptococcus mutans have been implicated as a major etiological agent of dental caries, in 90% of tested subjects with rampant caries in permanent teeth Streptococcus was identified. 

Systemic Infections
It may seem farfetched to relate oral infections to heart disease, brain abscesses, chronic meningitis, pneumonia, or preterm labor. However several studies identified the presence of microorganisms well known as oral colonizers in infected non-oral sites. This evidences that oral colonizers can spread through the human body and causing infections at distant locations, resulting in systemic infections.
