CloSYS: What it is and How
to use it
CloSYS: The First
Scientifically Engineered Tooth Paste
The majority of Americans use toothpaste
everyday. With the help of a toothbrush, toothpaste helps clean and maintain the health of your teeth
and gums. It promotes good oral hygiene by the removal of plaque and food
debris. For an added bonus, fluoride and xylitol are active ingredients in toothpaste to prevent
tooth decay and gum disease.
Toothpaste has been around for
centuries. The earliest known recipe came from Egypt in the
4th century A.D. The Greeks and Romans improved these pastes by adding crushed bone and
oyster shells but the popularity of toothpaste did not come until the 19th century.
In the 19th century toothpaste was made of hydrogen peroxide and baking soda, which are still commonly
used in dental care products today.
In 1914 fluoride was added to the
toothpaste, but the American Dental Association (ADA) did not recommend fluoride in toothpaste until the 1950’s.
Most products today have at least a small percentage of fluoride in them to help strengthen and make the teeth less
susceptible to cavities.
In our office Dr. Dilger recommends not
only using toothpaste that contains fluoride for prevention of decay, but also the use of CloSYS toothpaste for
help with prevention of gum disease.
CloSYS toothpaste and mouth wash
are America ’s first scientifically-engineered system of oral health care. The patented
key ingredient is chlorine dioxide and is only found in the CloSYS home care line of products. CloSYS is the only
oral health care product that kills 99% of germs and breaks down the volatile sulphur compounds that form under the
gum line. (The volatile sulphur compounds cause bad breath, and make the gums
“leaky.” They let the germs leak in, and the blood leak out.) Most products
merely kill bacteria, but do not break down the sulphur compounds, the waste product left by the bacteria left
under the gum line therefore not eliminating a person’s bad breath and irritated/infected tissues. This is why it
is necessary to floss with the CloSYS toothpaste rather then only brushing with it.

Dr. Dilger recommends that our patients

CloSYS instructions for
- First, thoroughly brush all
surfaces of your teeth with the cavity control toothpaste of your choice.
- Second, place a small amount of
CloSYS toothpaste on your toothbrush, and apply it to the gum line in all areas of the mouth including the
insides of the teeth. Do not over brush; merely apply the past to the teeth. Do not rinse the CloSYS toothpaste
- Floss, using whatever floss you
like, with the CloSYS toothpaste still on the teeth. Make sure to work the floss, with the CloSYS tooth paste
on it, under the gum line, and wrap the floss around the teeth. (see flossing instructions)
- Next brush the teeth once again
using the remaining CloSYS on the toothbrush.
- Finish by rinsing with the CloSYS
mouth wash. I like to use the Sonic care tooth brush to work the CloSYS rinse under the gum line.
Or use your water pik with a small amount of the CloSYS mouth wash mixed with water.
