MOVING FORWARD. TOGETHER.
“In many cases, receding gums are caused by periodontal disease (gum disease). Three out of four adults have some form of it, and in most cases, it doesn't cause any pain and goes unnoticed.
Common in adults, gum disease starts when bacteria containing plaque builds up on the teeth and gums. When the plaque is not removed daily, it produces toxins that irritate and inflame the gums. Eventually the inflammatory process destroys the gum tissues, causing them to separate from the tooth and form spaces called pockets. The pockets hold more bacteria, which only compounds the problem.”
Montmorillonite Contains High Absorbent Properties
The montmorillonite minerals in Claybrite Toothpaste occur in very small particles. They are extremely fine-grained and thin-layered, more than any of the other clay minerals. The layers contain ions that are very loosely bound to one another and easily exchangeable. Not only will the toxins stick to its outside surface, but numerous elements and organic matter will enter the space between the layers.
