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 Plus Swabs help clean the mouth to promote oral health.

<p>I first became acquainted with these swabs when my father was in his final stages of Alzheimer's and Parkinson's. Being a stage 3 cancer survivor, the radiation caused a stricture in the top of my esophagus and I am unable to swallow even my own saliva. I use these swabs along with some lidocaine viscous to remove mucus that has drained onto my stricture thus preventing any sore throats and removing a mucus build up that could prevent my breathing. They have been a real life saver, and I would highly recommend this product to everyone!</p>
