Bleeding gums, the early indication of gum problems
One of the world’s leading research based consumer healthcare companies, GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) introduced oral care brand Parodontax, especially formulated for daily cleaning and protection against gum problems.
Bleeding gums can be one of the first signs of gum disease that can lead to a tooth loss. Studies show bleeding gums is a global problem with one in every three people suffering from it.
Bleeding gums are easy to recognise because consumers see blood in their toothpaste spit after brushing. It is an easy self-diagnosis. Many consumers believe that blood is evidence of brushing too hard or incorrect brushing. This is reinforced by the belief that the problem is short term and will go away on its own rather than recognition of a chronic condition.
Gum problems can be split into two distinct phases; Gingivitis and Periodontitis. Whilst Gingivitis is the mildest type of gum problem causing red, inflamed gums that bleed during brushing, Periodontitis appears when the inflammation spreads to the gum socket holding the tooth eventually causing the tooth to fall out.
“GSK is committed to innovation. At GSK, we are committed to providing consumers with products that make a difference to their well being. Today we are proud to launch Parodontax as an effective remedy for bleeding gums,” commented GSK Consumer Healthcare Managing Director T.S. Dayanand.
Parodontax contains 67% Sodium Bicarbonate which with brushing helps to remove plaque and protect against gum problems. Regular removal of plaque through brushing with Parodontax will prevent plaque build-up. Plaque is one of the main causes of gum problems. Parodontax also contains fluoride to prevent cavities.
Parodontax is tried and tested toothpaste with a 75 year history of protecting gum health and is made of 70% special ingredients. Containing sodium bicarbonate, Parodontax cleans teeth by aiding plaque removal which leads to gum problems. Twice a day usage of Parodontax will help fight plaque and maintain oral hygiene.
