WILL STAIN YOUR TEETH
Reviewed in the United States on September 19, 2018
I cannot believe any mouth product would contain ingredients that would stain your teeth BUT THIS DOES. I just started using it and I noticed my teeth kept getting stains along the gum line that I have never gotten before. So I looked it up, apparently all the dentists out there know it: " The active ingredient in Crest Pro-Health mouthwash is cetylpyridinium chloride. "If you read the fine print on the back of the bottle, it will tell you it stains your teeth!!!!!
this product any any other teeth products tooth pastes, mouth washes. "It's a big issue for certain people, and some of those stains are very difficult to get off,'' says one dentist that I found: "explaining that the products dislodge bacteria that may cling to the teeth, turning into brown spots". This article was about Crest Pro-Health but this mouthwash has the same key ingredient. I didn't stop there I found more evidence. Crest Pro-Health toothpaste contains stannous fluoride, says Clemenza. "If you're using that every day, you're going to have what looks like coffee stains,'' she says. "In the past, we used to give stannous fluoride to patients who had a high rate of decay. But I don't believe you need to have your teeth stained. There are other products that do just as good a job." Read labels carefully, and avoid stannous flouride and cetylpyridinium chloride whenever possible" !
In fact, some of them may actually be staining your teeth. ... This metal can adhere to the teeth in the right conditions and cause extrinsic staining.” Fortunately, most toothpastes and mouthwashes have a warning on their label if they contain these chemicals.Oct 15, 2017
“The reason why this happens is in the way the CPC kills bacteria. CPC kills bacteria and dislodges them from the tooth. As they are being swished away, they can re-adhere to the tooth or collect in areas of the mouth—usually near the gums or on a ledge. The bacteria continue to die leaving brown stains wherever they are,” Lawlor continues.
“Stannous fluoride can [also] stain because it has a chemical compound which includes molecules of tin. This metal can adhere to the teeth in the right conditions and cause extrinsic staining.”
