  • Description/Active Ingredient:   GLY-OXIDE® Liquid contains carbamide peroxide 10%.

    Actions:    Gly-Oxide is specially formulated to release peroxide and oxygen bubbles in your mouth. The peroxide and oxygen-rich microfoam help:

    • gently remove unhealthy tissue, then cleanse and soothe canker sores and minor wounds and inflammations so natural healing can better occur.
    • kill odor-forming germs.
    • foam and flush out food particles ordinary brushing can miss.
    • clean stains from orthodontics/dentures/bridgework/etc. better than brushing alone.

    Indications For Temporary Use:   Gly-Oxide liquid is for temporary use in cleansing canker sores and minor wound or gum inflammation resulting from minor dental procedures, dentures, orthodontic appliances, accidental injury, or other irritations of the mouth and gums. Gly-Oxide can also be used to guard against the risk of infections in the mouth and gums.

    Everyday Uses:   Gly-Oxide may be used routinely to improve oral hygiene as an aid to regular brushing or when regular brushing is inadequate or impossible such as total care geriatrics, etc. Gly-Oxide kills germs to reduce mouth odors and/or odors on dental appliances. Gly-Oxide penetrates between teeth and other areas of the mouth to flush out food particles ordinary brushing can miss. This can be especially useful when brushing is made more difficult by the presence of orthodontics or other dental appliances. Plus, Gly-Oxide helps remove stains on dental appliances to improve appearance.

    Directions For Temporary Use:   Do not dilute. Replace tip on bottle when not in use. Adults and children 2 years of age and older:    Apply several drops directly from bottle onto affected area; spit out after 2 to 3 minutes.

Use by children under 12 years of age should be supervised. Children under 2 years of age:   Consult a dentist or doctor.

    Directions For Everyday Use:   The product may be used following the temporary use directions above. OR apply Gly-Oxide to the toothbrush (it will sink into the brush), cover with toothpaste, brush normally, and spit out.

    Warnings:   Severe or persistent oral inflammation, denture irritation, or gingivitis may be serious.
