Keeping the mouth clean is an important part of overall health. Bacteria in the mouth can form dental plaque, which has been linked to various diseases that originate in the mouth, including gingivitis. One study showed that “plaque on teeth can provide a breeding ground for this growth of bacteria.”1 Toothette Oral Swabs help clean the mouth to promote oral health.

Toothette's easy-to-use oral care systems help reduce bacterial colonization in the mouth and on the surface of the teeth - a known risk factor for ventilator-associated pneumonia (VAP).1 In fact, two separate studies using our Q?Care? Oral Cleansing and Suctioning Systems as part of a comprehensive oral care protocol saw VAP reductions of 42% and 60%.2,3 With multiple products incorporating innovative tools and effective solutions, proven clinical outcomes and effective compliance programs, it's no wonder 93% of all oral care is trusted to Toothette.4

<p>My son can no longer drink by mouth. The unflavored toothed has been a lifesaver. I will fill the sponge with water, wipe his mouth, his teeth in-between brushing teeth times and also wet his mouth before using toothbrush. If there are food particles on tongue, the toothette gets them and saves my fingers!!!</p>
