Mainly due to the presence of bacteria plaque the gums may present inflammation symptoms such as tumefaction, bleeding, pain. These symptoms may be efficiently treated by means of persistent brushing with GINGIVIT, a toothpaste specially formulated for gums weakened by the periodontal disease.
The active principles of GINGIVIT are Aluminum Lactate at 1%, and 2, 4, 4, trichloride-2-hydroxy-definil-ether (triclosan) at 0,2%. The first one belongs to the astringent category, and acts precipitating the proteins. It has a low penetrability when locally applied, maintaining its action on the cellular surface and on the interstitial spaces. The astringent action is accompanied by tissue contraction and crumpling. The cementing substance of the capillary endothelium gets hard so the pathological transcapillary movement of plasmatic proteins decreases, thus reducing the edema, transudation and local inflammation.
Triclosan is a broad spectrum antibacterial agent with action over gram positive bacteria such as streptococcus, clostridium, lactobacillus and styphylococcus, even over those stumps resistant to penicillin and meticillin, and gram negative bacteria like E. coli, Haemophilus, klebsiellas, and salmonellas, among others; it also has a strong action against fungus like candida, aspergillus, microsporum and more.
It also has anti-inflammatory properties by acting as inhibitor of the prostaglandins synthesis.
Slight but frequent hemorrhages of affected gums are controlled by the styptic action of GINGIVIT, which coagulates the blood, plugs the capillaries, reduces inflammation and maintains free from bacterial attack the affected region. Each brushing with GINGIVIT constitutes and antiseptic oral rinse of great help.
Due to the tetrasodium pyrophosphate present in its formula, GINGIVIT acts dissolving the tartar and eliminating the bacterial plaque, therefore, it attacks the primary cause of the problem.
Daily brushing with GINGIVIT progressively cleans the plaque, eliminating inflammation and improving buccal cavity general condition. GINGIVIT also has the exact quantity of sodium phosphate monofluoride to rapidly and effectively strengthen the dental enamel against the action of acids causing cavities.
