Purpose of individual ingredients:
The peroxygen compounds:
The per oxygen compounds like potassium persulfate, sodium perborate monohydrate and sodium carbonate peroxyhydrate are those which yield active oxygen on admixture with water.
Particularly suitable materials to provide the alkalinity of the composition are trisodium phosphate (a compound which in dilute aqueous solution, e.g. at 0.1-1% concentration, has a pH of 11.5-11.9)or sodium carbonate (whose dilute aqueous solutions have a pH which is generally above 11)
Sequestering agents are added to maintain clarity and to promote calculus removal. Preferred sequestering agents include ethylene diamine tetraacetic acid (“EDTA”). The EDTA may be present in amounts of above 1% to 25% by weight of the composition, preferably about 17% to about 23% by weight of the composition, and most preferably about 19% to 21% by weight of the composition. EDTA also plays a role as an anti-bacterial component.
The Clinsodent powder also contains anionic surfactant, having a long hydrophobic alkyl chain (e.g. of about 8-20 carbon atoms) attached to a hydrophilic ionic portion such as sulphate or sultanate radical (e.g., sodium laurel sulcate) in amount sufficient to promote foaming.
Dilute acids like Sulphamic acids are used for better cleansing action.
Tetra Potassium Pyro Phosphate plays a key role in removal of plaque.
Clinosdent contains Everlase as a protelytic enzyme. The enzyme functions through the digestion of the human mucoprotein component of deposits.
Direction of use:
Take a teaspoonful of Clinsodent in a suitable container, filled with water, leave the denture overnight. Rinse and brush the denture with sufficient water before use.
NOT TO BE TAKEN INTERNALLY
Keep in a cool and dry place. Keep the cap tightly closed.
It is used for cleaning the dentures.
Role of Key Ingredients of Clinsodent Powder:
Potassium persulfate and sodium perborate monohydrate yield active oxygen on mixing with water and helps in thorough cleaning.
Sequestering agents (preservatives) are added to maintain clarity and to promote calculus removal.
EDTA also plays a role as an anti-bacterial component.
Anionic surfactant, promotes foaming.
Everlase which is a protelytic enzyme functions through the digestion of the human mucoprotein component of deposits.
Warning : Not to be taken internally.
