[Sponsored Report] Dong-A’s Garglin Gum Guard fights gingivitis


Dong-A Pharmaceutical’s Garglin Gum Guard [DONG-A PHARMACEUTICAL]

As people continue to live longer, taking good care of the gums has become ever more important in keeping teeth healthy for life.

Gum disease is generally assumed to occur only among older generations, but recent trends suggest differently. According to one 2015 study, gum disease is the second-most common disease across all age groups, and other studies indicate the average age of onset is getting lower.

From 2012 to 2014, the prevalence rate of periodontal disease increased from 13.1 percent to 20.5 percent for men in their 30s and from 8.4 percent to 12.7 percent for women, according to results from a national health and nutrition survey conducted by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

To prevent gum disease, Dong-A Pharmaceutical recommends its “Garglin Gum Guard” to keep the gums healthy.

The main substances of the gum guard — sodium monofluorophosphate, cetylpyridinium chloride and dipotassium glycyrrhizin — prevent the development of gum disease and plaque. Tocopheryl acetate and panthenol are added to help protect the gum.

An assessment of the Garglin Gum Guard’s germ-killing activity shows it has the power to eliminate 99.9 percent of porphyromonas gingivalis, the main cause of gum disease, as well as streptococcus mutans, the main cause of oral cavities. Six weeks of clinical testing have also demonstrated curative effects on gingivitis and periodontitis.

Recommended use is three times a day after each meal. Massaging the gums with a toothbrush after rinsing the mouth with 10 to 15 milliliters of the gum guard enhances its effect.

The Garglin Gum Guard is available in local pharmacies, convenience stores and discount stores.
