"-and use this powder for your tender, bleeding gums" Only dentists understand the real dangers of neglect in caring immediately and prop erly for spongy, tender, bleeding or re ceding gums-warning signals of pyorrhea. Pyorrhea attacks and destroys the gum tissues and bony sockets which hold the teeth in place. Mastication becomes pain ful; the gums ache and bleed; teeth loosen and eventually fall out; the general health is affected by the bacteria developed under pyorrhetic conditions. Pyorrhocide Powder is the preparation most widely prescribed by dentists to prevent pyorrhea and to aid in restoring affected gums to a normally healthy condition. As a part of the Dentinol and Pyorrhocide Method, Pyorrhocide Powder has demon strated its value in maintaining gum vitality and in correcting all unhealthy conditions which lead to pyorrhea. The Dentinol and Pyorrhocide Method originated in the Pyorrhocide Clinic, New York, ten years ago. A staff of scientific investigators and dental specialists devoted many years to studying the causes and effects of pyorrhea and how it could be prevented and treated successfully. Dentinol, to be applied by the dentist, and Pyorrhocide Powder, to be used at home, were developed. Since 1908 dentists from all parts of the world have been instructed in the applica tion of the method. It is being used suc cessfully by thousands of dentists. Pyorrhocide Powder's effectiveness is due to the presence of Dentinol in combination with other healing ingredients. Used twice daily, Pyorrhocide Powder acts quickly and surely. It relieves tenderness; heals bleed ing gums. Spongy gums are made hard and firm. Their power of resistance against pyorrhea infection is increased. Pyorrhocide Powder retards tartar forma tion. It cleans and polishes the teeth. Tooth, gum and mouth health can be maintained only by co-operating 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.
