    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 Our single use swab system with Perox-A-Mint helps clean and moisturize the mouth to promote oral health.

    Package includes:

    • 2 Suction Swabs with sodium bicarbonate
    • 0.25 fl. oz./7 mL Perox-A-Mint Solution

    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 

    In fact, two separate studies using our QCare Oral Cleansing and Suctioning Systems as part of a comprehensive oral care protocol saw VAP reductions of 42% and 60%.²³> With multiple products incorporating innovative tools and effective solutions, proven clinical outcomes and effective compliance programs, it's no wonder 93% of all oral care is trusted to Toothette.4

    Toothettes single use suction swabs are the best thing ever invented. My son can’t eat by mouth and has trouble swallowing so when cleaning his mouth it’s important that he doesn’t swallow any liquid and this is where the suction swabs are put to use. Cleaning hie mouth is so much easier with the suction swabs. Honestly we could not live without suction. I depend on them. Thanks To sage products my son has a healthy clean mouth every day.
