Your dentist may recommend other aids or rinses as an adjunt, but success depends upon how meticulous you are, how effective your immune system is, how aggressive your bacteria are, and whether you are genetically prone. ...Read more

A dentist prescribed product or "in-office" procedure would be more effective. ...Read more
