The Natural Dentist Can Help

How The Natural Dentist® Mouth Rinse came to be used by cancer patients…

The Natural Dentist Mouth Rinse was developed by a practicing dentist whose professional interests included the study of herbs and their therapeutic properties. The original product was formulated to treat gingivitis and other gum problems. Its efficacy as a germ killer and treatment for gingivitis was tested and proven in clinical studies conducted at NYU Dental School.*

It wasn’t long before dental professionals, whose practices included cancer patients, began to use the product as a treatment for the most common oral side effects associated with chemotherapy – mouth sores. These dentists were dissatisfied with their available options and had done enough homework on herbs to know that certain phytochemicals have healing and soothing powers that go far beyond the chemical ingredients in the more commonly used treatments.

They were also seeking a daily cleansing rinse that would do no further damage or cause more irritation. The Natural Dentist Mouth Rinse met their requirements. Its active ingredients include Aloe vera in a therapeutic dosage along with other important herbals. They found the product offers the comprehensive ability to clean, relieve pain, soothe and heal. Just as importantly, it contains no alcohol or other harsh ingredients that can sometimes make oral side effects worse. The Natural Dentist uses only natural flavors, has a pleasant taste and can be used as often as needed.

Before beginning any new treatment regimen, you will want to check with your oncologist or oncology nurse. Bring your healthcare practitioner a copy of The Natural Dentist Healthy Gums ingredient list found below.

The most important ingredients for cancer patients are:

Aloe vera is an ancient, natural ingredient that would be hailed as a major scientific breakthrough if it came out of a modern drug lab. It coats, soothes and can even heal sores and irritations. Proven in multiple clinical studies, Aloe vera has been used in dentistry for its wound-healing effects. Aloe vera may also reduce the pain and duration of mouth sores while speeding healing.1 The Natural Dentist is the only leading rinse to contain Aloe vera at a level high enough to maximize its therapeutic benefit.

Echinacea is used topically for its wound-healing and anti-inflammatory benefits.2 Antibacterial and antiviral activities result from its immunostimulant properties.3 Goldenseal possesses antibacterial, antiviral and anti-inflammatory properties. It tightens the mucous membrane due to its astringent qualities and controls inflammation.4

Calendula is used as a wound healer for the treatment of mouth ulcers. It is also used for fungal infections, and as an anti-inflammatory cream to soothe skin lesions.4
