Polident denture cleaner science: cleanser formulations

Polident denture cleaner science: four active ingredients work in parallel to provide a deep clean

  1. Potassium monopersulfate
  2. Tetra acetyl ethylene diamine (TAED)
  3. Sodium percarbonate
  4. Sodium lauryl sulfate (SLS)6

The active ingredients in Polident denture cleanser tablets have an effective antimicrobial effect, killing bacteria and fungi linked with:

  • Mouth and gum irritation3
  • Bad odours4
  • Denture stomatitis4

4-in-1 cleaning system helps maintain denture hygiene every day

Polident denture cleanser tablets kill bacteria associated with plaque formation and yeast associated with denture stomatitis – significantly reducing denture biofilm mass and improving denture hygiene.5

  • In in vitro laboratory tests, Polident cleansers kill 99.9% of bacteria and fungi – including those associated with malodour and denture stomatitis†1,2
  • Polident cleansers penetrate biofilms and kill bacteria in hard-to-reach denture surface pores where bacteria can thrive (in vitro single-species bacterial biofilm)4,7
  • When used as directed, Polident cleansers help remove plaque and stains from dentures, and regular use prevents stain and plaque build-up8
  • Daily use of Polident cleansers with brushing removes significantly more bacteria than once-weekly denture cleanser treatment9

“Dentures should be cleaned daily by soaking and brushing with an effective, non-abrasive denture cleanser”11
