LP3 + MD2 Enzyme Systems in Oratene® Brushless Oral Care
Dental plaque is also known as dental biofilm and is very tacky, made up of bacteria and fungi and can build up on the teeth leading to the hardened formation of tartar. Over time, this accumulation can lead to bad breath, gingivitis, tooth decay, and tooth loss.
The effectiveness of the Oratene Brushless Oral Care is the ingredients. Oratene is the only oral care line to feature two complete enzyme systems for superior dental health benefits. Oratene contains the antibacterial enzymes of the LP3 Enzyme System plus the addition of the MD2 Enzyme System to effectively inhibit the growth of plaque-forming bacteria and reduces the development of plaque biofilm adhering to the teeth.
The combination of the LP3 Enzyme System plus MD2 Enzyme System inhibits the bacteria that cause bad breath and works to carefully balance, boost, and replenish saliva’s own defenses to support the natural protection found in the mouth. The enzymes work to reduce harmful bacteria while sustaining beneficial bacteria in addition to removing dental plaque biofilm and the microbial community that form it. The MD2 Enzyme System includes dextranase and mutanase.
Dextranase is an enzyme that catalyzes the hydrolysis of dextran to prevent tooth decay and inhibit plaque from binding to the teeth.
Mutanase renders plaque water soluble and unable to harden.
