Sunstar Says GUM Probiotic Lozenge Improves Gum Health

Over 50% of Americans state, they have moderate stress levels caused by balancing the demands of busy families and careers. However, many are unaware that stressful living, illness, poor diet or inadequate oral hygiene can disrupt oral balance and allow bad bacteria to thrive causing plaque buildup, poor gum health and bad breath. A balanced oral environment is essential for healthy teeth and gums, just as it is for overall wellness.

New GUM® PerioBalance®, a mint-flavored, daily, dental probiotic lozenge is one of the first probiotics specifically created for oral health. It helps to easily achieve a balanced oral environment, providing healthier teeth and gums in just 28 days.

GUM® PerioBalance® contains Prodentis™, an exclusive, unique blend of naturally occurring probiotics that help control excess bad bacteria. Probiotics are beneficial or “good” bacteria, which can help strengthen the natural defense system against oral health problems. Prodentis™ was specifically designed for oral health and helps to balance the oral environment, providing long-lasting, sustained protection when ingested and used regularly. It is clinically shown to reduce plaque and promote healthy teeth and gums. The fresh mint flavor also helps to fight bad breath.

“GUM® PerioBalance® is a cutting edge product for re-establishing the normal balance of oral flora naturally,” Professor John G. Thomas, MS, PhD, HCLD, international educator and global microbiologist said. “I am excited by the research on GUM® PerioBalance® which indicates its potential to help maintain a strong defense against unhealthy teeth and gums, plaque and bad breath.”

GUM® PerioBalance® when taken once a day, every day, can help maintain oral health. As always, consumers should continue to brush and floss for good oral hygiene.

GUM® PerioBalance® comes in a 28-day pack and can be purchased in the oral care section at major drugstores. For more information, go to
