    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.

    Use to remove food debris and excess saliva. Swabs can be used alone or dipped in water or oral rinse solution. Gently use swab to massage gums and stimulate oral tissue. Soft foam is gentle on sensitive gums. Star-shaped foam head has ridges to help clean between teeth.

    Sage'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

    I am writing this on behalf of my Mother who purchased the swabs. My Dad has Alzheimer's and these swabs a have proven to be very useful in keeping his gums clean. His Doctor told us that oral care would be very important in limiting infections. The swabs are individually wrapped so sanitary. We are very pleased that the product is made in the USA! Cheryl in customer service was very helpful and the shipping time was fast!

    I have been using Sage Pink Toothettes since 2008 for my severely disabled daughter. The pink foam is the only quality of foam that cleans her teeth and, most importantly for her, allows her nurses to clear phlegm from the back of her throat or roof of her mouth, she doesn't like the suction machine.
    Other foam brushes are too soft and/or the sticks are too long and bendy.

    Until recently we have purchased bags of 20 unwrapped toothettes in a case of 500. Now you only offer them individually wrapped, so someone has to unwrap each one and put in our bedside container so they are ready for use.

    Excellent product

    My son can no longer drink by mouth. The unflavored toothette 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!!!

    Cons:

    I've ordered these small pink dental sponges from Sage online twice - We have a 9 year old brain injured child who choked on a grape when he was 1-1/2 years old. Almost lost him, but he decided to stay with us a while. He has a serious sensitivity to his mouth area, he is unable to swallow normally and takes everything by G/J tube. So when we have to get into his mouth to clean his teeth, and for dental hygiene in general, this size sponge is much less intrusive than the larger green dental sponges that are available. They are non flavored so no strange taste introduction when we are working on dental hygiene. The order was lost the last time I ordered, and Sage was willing to work with me to replace the entire order in a timely fashion.

    Good product. I ordered the same product 07/20/2015. It was an order for TOOTHETTES case of 1000...I thought I was getting the same order on my recent order. This time I only received the quantity of 1 box of 250 individually wrapped singles.

    Recently I was hospitalized with pneumonia with complications. I am a 47 years old and I have been diagnosed with end stage ephysema and copd I have 4 kids age 25 to 6. I would order a supply but I cant afford it I just wanted you to know I have tried numerous brands and this was the only one that actually worked. I take a lot of medications and I'm on 2 liters of oxygen all the time so you know my mouth is always dry. This is a wonderful product so feel free to post this review and keep up the good work.

    My son was given these to help clean under his appliance for his cleft palate. When we changed doctors, they could not provide us with another option as good as these. Very highly recommended!
