 Oral Health Means Overall Health.

The significant relationship between oral and general health is increasingly recognized by both medical and dental health care personnel. And rightly so. Many reports seem to link poor oral health with very severe conditions including septicemia and several cardiovascular, central nervous system, respiratory and skeletal infections. There is little doubt that persons with compromised general health from chronic diseases, and perhaps also their associated treatments, are at higher risk for oral disease.

It's becoming increasingly clear from several studies that the cause of some of these serious health issues is linked to oral biofilm or dental plaque. Dental plaque is an archetypical biofilm composed of a complex microbial community. It is the etiological agent for major dental diseases such as dental caries (cavities) and periodontal disease.

The implication from these studies is that the control of pathogens in oral biofilms may prevent such microorganisms from reaching cardiovascular and pulmonary tissues, and from potentially causing or exacerbating existing diseases.

And it just may be that there is a novel new solution to the problem of oral biofilm!


Bacterial biofilms

Bacterial biofilms consist of dynamic, complex three-dimensional aggregations of microorganisms and their sticky extracellular polysaccharide matrix which adheres to moist mucosal and tooth surfaces and to foreign surfaces such as dental prostheses. Biofilms are associated with, for example, chronic rhinosinusitis, tonsillitis, recurrent urinary tract infections, chronic periodontitis and dental caries or cavities.

Most noticeable as a whiteish film in the mouth and usually especially visible on the tongue, oral biofilm is difficult to remove and to keep from returning. Many traditional toothpastes and mouthwashes may not have the microbial fighting capacity to correct the problem.


 Enter CBD Dental Products

Unlike traditional toothpastes and mouthwashes, Imbue’s PerioProtect Dental Products contain highly beneficial levels of CBD and other non-psychoactive cannabinoids that have been shown to possess significant antimicrobial properties. A recent Dutch study (Read Study Here) from 2020 found:

By evaluating the colony count of the dental bacteria isolated from six groups, it was found that cannabinoids were more effective in reducing the bacterial colony count in dental plaques as compared to the well-established synthetic oral care products such as Oral B and Colgate.

Cannabinoids have the potential to be used as an effective antibacterial agent against dental plaque-associated bacteria. Moreover, it provides a safer alternative for synthetic antibiotics to reduce the development of drug resistance.

And now this year, with the introduction of PerioProtect Dental Products, consumers have access to products that contain these cannabinoids.

It’s a CBD Oral Product Line, designed by leading industry professionals for exceptional oral health. Natural products without fluoride combined with the benefits of organically grown Colorado CBD, it’s a collaborative effort between leaders in the periodontal field that have for years been formulating products that truly make an impact in the management of periodontal disease and a leader in clinically efficacious CBD products in independent pharmacies. These products are a true step forward in daily oral care.

A Personal Perspective

As you may be aware, we don’t make claims about our products. But we do use our products every day in our personal lives and like to share our experience. As an asthma sufferer using various inhalers for treatment, I’ve been plagued with biofilm which can be exacerbated by oral steroid inhalers.

Using our PerioProtect toothpaste and mouthwash, I’ve been amazed at how the visual signs of this biofilm have virtually disappeared. Nothing else I’ve ever tried or used has achieved anywhere close to similar results!

So, if you’re concerned about oral biofilm and the effects it may have on your oral and overall health, might we suggest giving our new CBD PerioProtect Dental Products a try so you can see for yourself how effective they are.
