with the patented ingredient Lactobacillus paracasei detects the caries causing bacteria(Streptococcus mutans), clumped with them and in this way, renders them harmless. Caries-causing bacteria such as Streptococcus mutans, attach themselves to the surface of teeth. There they use sugar as a nutrient and produce acids that attack tooth enamel – holes develop in the teeth. Plaque Ex Forte recognises this very caries bacteria, attaches to them and clumps with the unwanted pathogens. The bacterial clumps are swallowed with the saliva or rinsed from the oral cavity. The active ingredient shows this effect within ten to fifteen seconds. Plaque Ex Forte acts specifically against the unwanted caries, and helps to maintain the healthy beneficial microflora in the mouth.
