Oxygenated toothpaste is a special type of toothpaste with fresh oxygen infused into its formula. The primary benefit of using this type of toothpaste is its ability to eradicate germs and bacteria that are the leading causes of bad breath and gum disease. Even though oxygenated toothpastes are primarily marketed to individuals with oral hygiene problems such as bad breath or gum disease, anyone can reap the benefits from using them because the oxygen also assists with whitening the teeth and reinvigorating the gums. Special formulas of oxygenated toothpastes can also be purchased that incorporate vitamins and minerals that are beneficial to proper oral hygiene.

Since the bacteria that cause bad breath cannot thrive in an oxygen-rich environment, using oxygenated toothpaste as a powerful weapon against bad breath makes perfect sense. As the teeth and gums are brushed with oxygenated toothpaste, the oxidization process begins, and harmful bacteria are killed and removed. When brushing, it's important to be thorough and brush all surfaces of the teeth, gums, and the top of the tongue. For an even more intensive treatment for bad breath, after brushing with an oxygenated toothpaste, try rinsing with an oxygenated mouthwash.

In addition to helping treat bad breath, oxygenated toothpaste can aid in reinvigorating the gums and whitening teeth. Immediately after brushing, the mouth will feel energized and much cleaner than after using a regular toothpaste. Mainly, this is due to the way the oxidization process bubbles and breaks up the bacteria. With continued and consistent use of the product, problems with gums and early stages of periodontal disease may decrease or even disappear completely. The goal is to keep bacteria populations in the mouth under control and to maintain bright pink and healthy gums.

Some brands of oxygenated toothpaste also offer several other advantages in addition to a clean and healthy mouth. Natural and organic varieties are available for those interested in ecofriendly options. Also, some brands infuse additional vitamins and minerals into their formulas to further enhance potential benefits. For example, aloe vera can be added to help soothe raw and inflamed gums as the healing process begins, and nutrients such as vitamins A and D may be added. Vitamin E may be added for its free-radical scavenging properties.

@Ruggercat, I believe you're right about the use of hydrogen peroxide in oxygenated toothpaste. I tried some a few years ago and it did seem to work better than regular toothpaste in a lot of ways. My wife tried it and said it triggered a few mouth ulcers. She has a sensitivity to some of the detergents found in toothpaste. I'd recommend buying the smallest tube available in order to see if you can tolerate it or not.

I may be wrong, but I think one of the main ingredients in oxygenated is hydrogen peroxide. It foams up and released oxygen whenever it encounters moisture in the mouth. It can also act as a tooth whitener, since hydrogen peroxide is also an active ingredient in those tooth whitening strips.
