Colloid Mouthwash is inspired by nature and in addition to silver ions, as the most efficient combatant against pathogens inhabiting the mouth, it is fortified with mint and sage essential oils and tea tree extract.
It has been proven to strengthen tooth enamel even in hard-to-reach areas, prevent tooth decay and eliminate bacteria left behind after brushing, and prevent plaque formation, the main cause of gum diseases.
The only mouthwash with silver ions
Colloid Mouthwash with silver ions is an all-natural, safe product, a mix of silver ions and mint, sage and tea tree essential oils. Owing to its natural, beneficial properties it additionally supports oral hygiene, leaving pleasant and fresh breath. Thanks to their potent effect, silver ions (only a few seconds after using the mouthwash) eliminate mouth bacteria and viruses, and bad breath at the same time.
Colloidal silver combats and neutralises more than 650 pathogens. Silver works against a plethora of pathogens by inhibiting the respiratory enzyme of the pathogen’s cell. Silver acts as a catalyst blocking certain enzymes, which bacteria, viruses and fungi use in their metabolism, depriving these infectious agents of oxygen and food and causing them to decay.
The inhibition of enzymes used by pathogens in their metabolism happens so quickly and efficiently that no microorganism can mutate or become resistant. At the same time, our body cells remain intact, as their oxygen supply mechanism is totally opposite to that employed by bacteria
Essential steps in proper oral hygiene
First and foremost, the use of mouthwash cannot replace brushing, it is only an accessory. Brushing your teeth using toothpaste physically removes most soft plaque and bacteria from your teeth and gums; an interdental brush cleans hard-to-reach areas between teeth, and mouthwash reduces the amount of bacteria after brushing and the chances of fresh plaque building up. Clearly, mouthwash can replace brushing in circumstances when thorough oral hygiene is not possible.
Secondly, mouthwash with silver ions will eliminate bad breath by killing most pathogens inhabiting the mouth.
Research has shown that 30 seconds of swishing is most effective.
It is recommended to use mouthwash daily (in the morning and evening). The mouthwash is especially suitable for those with several fillings or even crowns or bridges, since it reduces the amount of bacteria around the teeth that a toothbrush or floss cannot reach.
Oral hygiene starts at infancy, and children follow our lead …
Why is mouthwash useful?
The main purpose of antiseptic mouthwash is oral hygiene. However, those who think that mouthwash will replace brushing the teeth are sorely mistaken. After brushing, it is desirable to rinse the teeth with mouthwash, so that antiseptic agents can eliminate the bacteria left behind after brushing. As bacteria are the main culprits for bad breath, this mouthwash will help freshen breath while eliminating bacteria: kicking bad breath to the curb.
For thorough oral hygiene it is desirable to use interdental brushes too, which help remove food stuck between the teeth, and then rinse with mouthwash. You can rinse without measuring or you can use the cap as a dosing aid. Mouthwash is not be drunk or swallowed, but only gargled and swished around. This can be repeated several times, and the remaining liquid should be spit out. Mouthwash is a pleasant mouthwash eliminating a plethora of bacteria without causing any mouth irritation. It is recommended to use it every morning and evening after brushing.
Mouthwash benefits for certain indications:
The cause of aphthae is mostly a consequence of a weakened immune system, and triggers may be various, starting from a local traumatic event following tooth pooling, through stress, hormonal activity and allergies, the onset of a disease, deficiency of certain vitamins, to poor oral hygiene, which is the most common cause. In addition, aphthae are caused by certain skin conditions, digestive diseases, cardiovascular diseases, connective tissue diseases, etc.
After the onset of aphthae, it is essential to increase oral hygiene to avoid complications of canker sores due to infection.

Cavities top the dental problems prevalence list. Cavities are a chronic disease of hard dental tissues, progressing gradually and leading to the breakdown of teeth. In 75% of cases this condition onsets on the surface of the tooth, i.e. biting surface by eroding enamel, followed by progressive penetration deep and wide into the tooth affecting other dental tissue structures. Diet, hereditary factors, age, endocrine gland function and so on fall under general factors. On the other hand, poor oral hygiene, tooth order and shape, saliva, microorganisms, iatrogenic factors and so on fall under local factors. The major contributor to cavities are dental plaque bacteria also containing saliva, food residues and other natural substances.
BAD BREATH (Foetor ex ore)
Bad breath is a problem affecting many, and manifests as an unpleasant smell coming from the mouth or spreading through the mouth. Anaerobic bacteria in this region produce unpleasant smelling sulphuric compounds, and morning bad breath affects more than 50% of adults. The tongue is a perfect breeding ground for lingering bacteria and their growth. Bad breath may also be a result of sleeping with an open mouth, increased microbial activity and lower salivation during the night.
INFLAMED GUMS (gingivitis, periodontitis)
Inflamed gums may have several causes, including:
Plaque – a common cause of the stage one gum disease, gingivitis. Plaque bacteria accumulate on and around the tooth all the time, and if they are not removed by regular brushing they can irritate the gums and may contribute to making them red and inflamed. If inflamed gums are not treated periodontitis may develop, a more severe, irreversible stage of gum disease that may lead to teeth loss. Mouth ulcers – These red, white or grey sores may be painful and appear anywhere in the mouth, including the gums, which may cause them to swell and inflame. Gum abrasion – If brushing is too aggressive or forceful, the sensitive gum tissue may be damaged, which becomes swollen and inflamed.
INFLAMED MOUTH MUCOSA
The most common causes are viruses, and more often than not certain bacteria and fungi. It is known that the mouth is inhabited by a large number of microorganisms. Some make up normal flora and cause no diseases. However, where oral hygiene is poor and the immune system weak, they can reproduce and cause many conditions.
Most common mouth disorders:
- Tongue diseases
- Fungal, bacterial and viral diseases
- Dental tartar
- Salivary gland disorders
The most common causes of infection in the orofacial region are bacteria:
- Staphylococcus aureus – a pathogenic bacterium, causing inflammation of sebaceous glands, sinusitis and wound infections.
- Pseudomonas aeruginosa – a highly resistant bacterium, causing a large number of diseases, among other respiratory infections and pneumonia, resistant to antibiotics.
- Staphylococcus aureus secretes various toxins: aflatoxin, enterotoxins, exfoliatin, leucocidin, a toxin that causes toxic shock syndrome, and its direct penetration into the body may cause various infections.
After brushing, rinse your mouth thoroughly with the mouthwash. Do not swallow. May be used daily. Rinsing time depends on the amount of bacteria in the mouth, but we recommend at least 30 seconds of intensive gargling once to twice per day.
