For a long time, bacteria were preceded by their reputation as pathogens. The latest scientific findings show that a balanced microbial balance is of the utmost importance for our health. This applies not only to our intestines or our skin, but also to our teeth and gums. Put simply: Good bacteria protect. However, if harmful bacteria predominate, various diseases develop.
In the mouth, for example, dental plaque, which consists of complex layers. If tooth surfaces are not kept free of plaque, plaque can lead to caries, periodontitis and gingivitis. Gingivitis is a mostly bacterial inflammation of the gums.
The right care and prophylaxis are therefore essential to prevent plaque, inflammation and bleeding of the gums. bioemsan toothpaste consists of high-quality biological herbs and Beneficial Microorganisms. In terms of prophylaxis, it achieves positive effects, all on a natural basis without chemical additives.
So far, toothpastes with chemically active ingredients have been extensively investigated, and there is still no such extensive study material on herbal toothpastes. In connection with his dissertation at the Institute for Bacteriology and Mycology at the University of Leipzig and the Polyclinic for Dental Conservation and Periodontology at the University of Leipzig, Alexander Geidel compared a herbal toothpaste with chemically active toothpastes with regard to their effectiveness in plaque and gingivitis control. The study was initiated by Dr. Monika Krüger, Professor Emeritus and Director of the Institute for Bacteriology and Mycology, in collaboration with Prof. Dr. Dr. h.c. H. Jentsch. At her suggestion, the bioemsan toothpaste from Multikraft was examined more closely as a herbal toothpaste.
In the clinical study, volunteers were selected from the patient base of a dental practice and randomly assigned to one of the toothpaste groups: a triclosan and a fluoride-containing toothpaste and a herb-based toothpaste - bioemsan from Multikraft. Triclosan is used in toothpastes because of its antimicrobial effect, fluoride to protect against tooth decay. In accordance with the guidelines, the test persons applied the respective toothpaste regularly during the 24-week test phase.
Alexander Geidel was interested, among other things, in how certain values in the mouth change with regular use of the respective toothpastes. "The Approximal Plaque Index (API) is a measure of oral hygiene. Like the Oral Hygiene Index (OHI), it describes the percentage of plaque per tooth. The Sulcus Bleeding Index (SBI) indicates the amount of bleeding points after careful probing of the gums. The SBI and also the Index Bleeding on Probing (BOP) are related to the inflammation of the gums. The lower the values of API and OHI (also of SBI and BOP), the healthier the gums", explains the dentist practicing in Leipzig.
In the study, the results for the effectiveness of the herbal toothpaste were better than those of the reference toothpastes. With regard to the variables OHI, API and BOP, the results of herbal toothpaste after six weeks were significantly better than those of fluoride toothpaste and slightly better than those of triclosan toothpaste. "I think the significantly better values are based on the composition of bioemsan toothpaste," says Alexander Geidel.
Effective without chemical additives
In his dissertation, he concluded that bioemsan herbal toothpaste is just as effective in reducing plaque and gingivitis as conventional or fluoride-containing toothpastes. It has been proven that bioemsan toothpaste can inhibit the formation of bleeding gums and plaque and reduce anaerobic bacteria in saliva.
The results therefore indicate that bioemsan toothpaste is a suitable alternative to chemically active toothpastes. Dentist Alexander Geidel: "The toothpaste containing triclosan and fluoride used in the study is one of the best investigated toothpastes. In comparison, we have shown that bioemsan herbal toothpaste inhibits gum bleeding and plaque better. This means that people can trust bioemsan toothpaste and even prefer it to toothpastes containing triclosan and fluoride."
