MOUTHWASH TARGETS
BAD BREATH
CB12 is a unique anti-halitosis
mouthwash proven to neutralise
and prevent production of the foul
smelling volatile sulphur compounds
(VCSs) which cause endogenous bad
breath. When tested against four
other commercially available mouthwashes the product came out top in
clinical comparison studies carried
out by the Microbiology Unit of West
of England University, Bristol.
According to its developers, CB12
works by chemically binding itself
to tissues in the oral cavity and
effectively stopping VSCs in their
tracks. The product can be used by
anyone over 8-years-old and a single dose remains effective in keeping
the breath fresh for 12 hours. Dental
practices can order CB12 in quantities as small as one box at a time.
