When it comes to cleaning my teeth, I’m kind of a nut… I find absolute pleasure in brushing and flossing my teeth and while I don’t have the world’s most perfect or whitest teeth, I know they are clean. I’m always trying new teeth cleaning products so I was very excited to get the opportunity to try the CloSYS Oral Health System for myself and see how it worked for me. Today I’ll be sharing with you my thoughts on the products I got to try and let you know how it worked for me.
The CloSYS Oral Health System is comprised of Alcohol-Free Oral Health Rinses (flavored or unflavored), CloSYS “Silver” a fluoride rinse, CloSYS Toothpaste (available with fluoride or fluoride-free), and CloSYS Fresh Breath Oral Spray. CloSYS products contain Cloralstan (trade name for stabilized chlorine dioxide) which is formulated and patented to maintain oral wellness. Clorolstan impedes plaque formation, oxidizes volatile sulfur compounds (VSCs) and kills harmful bacteria that irritate gums and cause bad breath while maintaining a healthy oral environment.
So what is Cloralstan and how is it activated?
Cloralstan is a buffered, water based solution that contains chlorine dioxide gas in sodium chlorite… I know it’s a lot of scientific language and stuff, so hang in there and I’ll try to explain it the best I can. When Cloralstan is introduced into the mouth, the solution is naturally activated by the amino acids in your saliva, creating a small and very safe amount of chlorine dioxide. Cloralstan is also activated by motion, such as brush or swishing. Once it is released, Chloralstan kills the bacteria associated with the build-up of plaque and kills the pro-inflammatory infectious bacteria that are associated with gum disease and host of systemic diseases as well.
Is Chlorine dioxide safe to use?
Chlorine dioxide sounds a bit scary and I’m sure you’re wondering if it is safe. Key components of stabilized chlorine dioxide – chlorine dioxide and chlorite, are used to purify drinking water and sanitize food, and as a result the safety of these compounds have been extensively studied by researchers and documented by the US Government. The amount of stabilized chlorine dioxide in CloSYS products are within the limits observed as safe in these studies, so while it sounds a bit freaky, it actually won’t harm you and will help you and your teeth.
Since I’m such a
crazed nut when it comes to cleaning my teeth, this system has been so beneficial over the couple of months so I just had to share it with all of you. So let’s chit chat about each product and discuss how it has worked for me.
The CloSYS Alcohol-Free Oral Health Rinse retails for about $10 for the 32 fl.oz. which is a steal considering the amount you get. This mouth rinse is non-irritating so it’s perfect for sensitive mouths like mine and you can decide to control the flavor of your rinse as it comes unflavored (the one I have does, but they now have a flavored option available) and you can add some flavor to the unflavored rinse by putting a few drops of the Flavor Control dropper which includes natural peppermint oil (included) so you can decide on the amount you want.
To use the mouth wash, simple rinse your mouth for at least 30 seconds with 1/2 oz. (2 full caps) of the health rinse. Spit out the remainder, do not swallow it. The unflavored version is really not that bad but I prefer to put in a drop of the peppermint oil to add a little flavor. After using this mouth rinse I noticed my mouth feels squeaky clean – which is exactly how I like it to be. My breath smells clean and fresh and I just love that my teeth feel so clean for the entire day.
The CloSYS Sulfate-Free Fluoride Toothpaste (clean mint) has been a great addition to my oral health routine and retails for about $7.00 for a 3.4oz tube. It tastes like any toothpaste would and I like how my teeth felt and how clean it was after just the first use. This toothpaste is formulated to kill 99.9% of germs that cause bad breath, dissove unwanted compounds and reduce harmful bacteria in your mouth for a noticeably cleaner and fresher mouth. I have replaced my normal tooth paste with this one from CloSYS and have really enjoyed it.
This toothpaste has a sulfate-free formula that is non-irritating and is anti-plaque and anti-cavity. It helps eliminate your bad breath and has a gentle low abrasion formula and it is also pH balanced. After using this for a few months, I noticed my teeth are not as sensitive as they used to be and I like how clean my teeth feel immediately after brushing and overtime.
The CloSYS Fresh Breath Oral Spray has been a handy dandy thing to have on hand. Retailing for $2.00 for a 0.25 fl.oz. spray, you get a lot of product and it’s perfect for on the go and to throw in the purse. I’ve been enjoying this product specifically because I don’t chew gum as often and this has been nice to use while I’m out and about. The minty fresh flavor keeps my breath smelling good and feeling good all day long. Just like it’s other tooth brushing counterparts, it is pH balanced and it’s also sugar free and a non-aerosol spray.
The CloSYS Toothbrushes come in a 2 pack for $3.00 and are comfortable to grip while brushing, soft enough to clean your teeth without any abrasion but still firm enough to get down and in the dirty. I like it and it’s an affordable cost considering what you find on the market today.
The Tongue Cleaner is also a great addition to your oral cleaning arsenal. I used it to gently scrape any of the white coating from my tongue. It was easy to use and definitely did the job at hand that it was needed for. You can pick up the 12 pack for $19.99 or get it as a part of a set with the One Month Fluoride or Fluoride-Free Kit for $24.99 (includes the mouth rinse, tooth paste, breath spray, tooth brush and this tongue cleaner).
I have been really enjoying the CloSYS Teeth Cleaning System. My teeth feel good, clean and I really enjoy the price point. I especially enjoy a good clean that doesn’t cause my mouth to have any type of sensitivities. CloSYS can be purchased at some of my local stores like Walmart, Walgreens & CVS and I can also order it online at CloSYS.com or on Amazon. There are various stores that you can find this teeth system through out the US as well. While I haven’t noticed much in the whitening area and still use my current whitening routine, I do notice how clean my teeth feel and enjoy the fact that they are not as sensitive as they usually are. I have taken this set to my dentist prior to use and he says that it’s a pretty good brand and perfect for sensitive teeth.
Overall – I think it’s worth checking out considering the price point. For just $25.00 you can try out all of the items I listed and discussed above in my post and try the whole set for yourself. If you are someone who has sensitive teeth like I do and are looking for an affordable alternative, I definitely say to give these a try or take it to your dentist and ask him about it for yourself.
Have you heard or seen of CloSYS products before? If so, what are your thoughts on them? Have you tried them? Do you think you’ll give it a go if you haven’t?
