AnOxident balance oral spray 50ml – counteracts the effects of diabetes induced salivary glucose on teeth and gums. Use during the day, between toothbrushing to moisture soft tissues and maintain a healthy mouth.
AnOxident is a brand new range of oral care products specifically for those with diabetes. It is developed by Dr. Jean Paul Perraudin, the same inventor of both BioXtra and the original Biotene.
LF-NFQ and DUOX system. The spray forms a barrier counteracting the effects of excess glucose in the mouth lowering the risk of periodontal (gum) problems and tooth decay related to a glucose rich diet.
The range is designed for use in place of your normal oral care range. Ideally use the toothpaste night and morning – spit out after brushing but don’t rinse. Use the gel throughout the day to relieve dry mouth symptoms and maintain healthy saliva then use the gel applied before sleeping. More information on individual product page.
How to use – Spray onto gums and tongue as often as required during the day. Also helps relieve dry mouth symptoms.

A Summary of Clinician observations of oral health in diabetes and why AnOxident balance can be considered a useful adjunct to in care pathway of a diabetic.
- Periodontal disease affects glycaemic control.
- At present, there is no specific treatment for diabetic oral disease.
- The wound healing factors of gingiva are impaired due to insulin resistance.
Diabetes and periodontitis have become a global burden of chronic diseases. Both have many common risk factors.
- Reduced saliva may be due to a disturbance in glycaemic control.
- Hypo-salivation is related to elevated blood glucose.
- Diabetes is defined by the WHO as a 21st century epidemic.
- Periodontal diseases are the main oral health problem in people with diabetes.
- Diabetes is a risk factor for periodontal diseases.
- The risk of periodontitis is 3x greater in diabetics and poor metabolic control increases this risk factor.
- Treatment of periodontitis has been shown to improve metabolic control.
- It is imperative, therefore, to stop the damage from occurring.
- Periodontal disease is a risk factor for systemic disease.
- Poor Control of periodontal disease pre-disposes to diabetes.
Early detection and treatment or periodontal disease can significantly reduce the complications of diabetes.
