Geek out even more about qii
Your complete guide to a cleaner mouth, a healthier body, and a happier you.
The mouth harbors one of the most diverse bacterial ecosystems in the body. We’re focused on understanding both the harmful bacteria that trigger cavities, periodontal disease and bad breath as well as the beneficial microbes that support oral health. We’re finding ways to wipe out the bad while nurturing the good. qii is different. With a shelf-stable pH around 7, it helps maintain a neutral, non-acidic oral environment that allows the beneficial bacteria in your mouth to thrive.
A good oral hygiene regimen can help eliminate plaque, one of the main contributors to oral conditions like tooth decay and gum disease. We’ve developed qii, the world’s first drink proven to reduce plaque buildup because let’s be honest, we don’t always floss and brush our teeth as often and as diligently as we should.
Dental plaque is made up of millions of bacteria that live in a sticky film on the surface of teeth. This microbial community is also referred to as a biofilm. To study the effectiveness of qii in reducing dental plaque, we tested it in the lab against the oral pathogens Streptococcus mutans(tooth decay and cavities), Porphyromonas gingivalis (gingivitis) and Solobacterium moorei (halitosis).
Cavity schmavity! These dental problems are more than just a costly nuisance. They can have far-reaching effects on the health of your entire body.
Bacteria assemble on surfaces to build communities called biofilms, which play an important role in health and disease.
