The active ingredient, PAC5 is a safe, non-toxic antimicrobial technology which is not an antibiotic or oxidizing agent. All the ingredients are listed on the label of each product.
EXXCL products are U.S. FDA-compliant.
We recommend that our products be used within 18 months, although they remain effective beyond that period of time.
Storage under normal ambient temperatures like those found in a dental office or home is fine. Do not refrigerate any EXXCL products.
We recommend using EXXCL Toothpaste because it also contains PAC5, the same infection-fighting ingredient that’s in the Oral Irrigant.
Yes, nearly all of the commercially-available mouthwashes are antibacterial to some degree. But none has any significant effect on biofilms, which constitute the vast majority of chronic oral infections, such as biofilm plaque. PAC5, the active ingredient in all EXXCL products, not only kills the microbes that cause biofilm infections, it penetrates the biofilm mass, kills the inhabitants, and removes the biofilm mass from the structure to which it is attached.
There are a number of intraoral disorders not caused by bacterial infection, which should be considered in this instance. A patient should also be evaluated for systemic disorders which can affect gum health.
