If you have a problem with thrush (white spots in your mouth, tongue from medications) and/or bleeding gums, rinse with hydrogen peroxide four times a week. Since I have been doing this starting 7 years ago, I have not spit out blood nor had thrush problems in this long. I also wet my brush with peroxide instead of water. My doctor not only commented on the health of my gums but also agreed with this practice. Virus', bacteria and fungus can not survive hydrogen peroxide. It also kills gingivitis which causes bad breath and bleeding gums. 10,000 papers have been written on the use of hydrogen peroxide and it has been dubbed the "Spark of Life." I am referring to the 3% in the brown bottle. Take care.
