the tongue. They thrive in a dry, dark environment such as under the gums,
the spaces between the teeth and the crevices of the tongue.
are active in inflammation of the gum (gingivitis) and gum disease (periodontitis).

that has proven to kill the bacteria and dissolve the Sulfer compounds
while leaving the beneficial aerobic bacteria.
