Your gums must be kept firm and healthy If your gums are sore or tender-if they bleed when brushed-if they are soft or have begun to recede-then Pyorrhea is attacking the tissues surrounding the roots of your teeth. As pyorrhea progresses, it destroys the bone sockets which hold the teeth in place. The teeth loosen and eventually fall out. And lost teeth are only one of the effects of neglected pyorrhea. Often the entire health is undermined by the pus-producing bacteria from unhealthy gums. The medium widely recommended by the dental profession for maintaining the vitality of the gums is Pyorrhocide Powder. It is a part of the Dentinol and Pyorrhocide Method introduced ten years ago by the staff of dental specialists and scientific investigators of the Pyorrhocide Clinic. The Pyorrhocide Clinic, as the first and only institution devoted exclusively to the study of pyorrhea, has, since 1908, instructed visiting dentists from all parts of the world in the proved methods of treating and preventing pyorrhea. The discoveries and results from the many years of continuous research by the Clinic staff and associated investigators have been given to the entire profession. Today thousands of lead ing dentists practice the D entinol and Pyorrhocide method. The medium employed is Dentinol, a liquid applied by the dentist. This is supplemented by the home use of Pyorrhocide Powder, which contains Dentinol combined with other healing ingredients. Its Dentinol medication makes Pyorrhocide Powder unequalled for promoting a firm healthy condition of the gums. It helps to retard tartar formation, which is the principal cause of painful gums and loose teeth. It cleans and polishes the teeth. Tooth, gum and mouth health can be main tained only by co-operation with a dentist and by the regular use, twice daily, of a medium like Pyorrhocide Powder compounded to meet the requirements proved essential by years of scientific research and clinical experience. Pyorrhocide Powder is economical because a dollar package contains six months' supply. For sale by all dental supply houses and good drug stores.
