Newly accepted ADA Seal product helps eliminate bad breath

May 18, 2017

Two ClōSYS Alcohol-Free Oral Health Rinses are the first mouth rinses to be awarded the ADA Seal of Acceptance for the management of oral malodor.

The ADA Council on Scientific Affairs in May accepted the rinses based on the council's finding that the products are safe and have shown efficacy in helping to reduce oral malodor when used as directed.

ClōSYS Alcohol-Free Oral Health Rinse, marketed as "gentle oral care" for sensitive mouths, received the ADA Seal for both its Unflavored and Gentle Mint varieties.

"As the ADA Seal of Acceptance program is a well-established and well-respected symbol of excellence in dentistry, we are delighted to have ClōSYS Unflavored Oral Rinse and ClōSYS Gentle Mint Oral Rinse be the first mouth rinses awarded the ADA Seal for the management of oral malodor," the makers the mouthwash, Rowpar Pharmaceuticals, Inc., said in a statement to ADA News. "Dental professionals and patients have a lot of products to choose from and this new ADA Seal helps dental professionals and the general public better understand the ClōSYS difference. We are honored and excited to receive this recognition."
