How DentaSure
Removes Plaque

How does DentaSure remove hardened plaque from a dog's teeth?

My Springer is only two years old but has a buildup of plaque on her teeth. I cannot get her to eat rawhide or bones. Brushing does not seem to be the answer. I am interested in Dentasure, but need to understand how it can remove the hardened plaque. What is the active ingredient in this product that can perform this feat?

Does anyone else have this plaque problem?

Editor’s answer:

Hello Mary, and thank you very much for sharing your questions. Since many of our readers have asked these same questions, I would like to offer a detailed answer along with some independent professional medical opinions.

The question is, “Exactly how does DentaSure remove hardened plaque from a dog’s (or a cat’s or a person’s) teeth?”

Let’s first identify the problem. What exactly is plaque?

According to the toothpaste people, Colgate (, “Plaque is a sticky, colorless film of bacteria and sugars that constantly forms on our teeth. It is the main cause of cavities and gum disease, and can harden into tartar if not removed daily.”

Having teeth and having plaque go hand in hand because bacteria thrive on the food we eat along with sugars and starches that convert to sugars. The acids produced in the process constantly bombard our teeth, leading to cavities and eventually gingivitis, periodontal disease and tooth loss. Plaque removal is a constant battle.

It is important to note the words “sticky” and “colorless” in the Colgate definition of plaque. Without daily removal, this sticky plaque surface attracts even more bacteria which soon hardens into a buildup of tartar.

Tartar itself is colorless but tends to stain easily. This accounts for the unsightly brownish-yellow coating. The staining is not usually to the teeth but to the tartar, also called calculus, buildup.

Remember, plaque is caused by bacteria on the teeth and tartar is the plaque that has hardened on top.

Conventional dentistry addresses plaque and tartar as symptoms and uses a procedure called scaling. This “scraping away” process is usually performed by a dentist or hygienist, or in the case of your two year old Springer, a vet or vet tech.

Holistic dentistry, on the other hand, offers complementary and alternative medical solutions that combine (1) getting to the root cause of the problem (bacteria) and not just the symptoms, and (2) empowering the patient to strengthen his or her natural healing ability as much as possible.

With this approach in mind, DentaSure uses two of nature’s most powerful antibiotics to destroy pathogens and undercut tartar. These foot soldiers in the bacteria battle are Grapefruit Seed Extract (GSE) and Propolis.

At Natural Wonder Products we use only organically grown grapefruit seed extract. This natural antibiotic has been trusted by naturopathic physicians, medical clinics and holistic veterinarians for over 30 years. GSE is a multipurpose (broad spectrum) compound with countless uses. Most frequent uses of GSE in humans and animals alike include treatment for oral infections, plaque and tartar, gum disorders/gingivitis, and bad breath.

According to Roger Wyatt, Ph.D. and Microbiologist for the University of Georgia, “The lack of any significant toxicological properties of GSE is also impressive when one views the efficacy data where extremely small concentrations of the product can be used with marked beneficial results.”

Practitioners of natural medicine have sung the praises of Propolis for decades. Gathered by honey bees, propolis is “nature’s ultimate antibiotic” according to the World Health Organization. Propolis combats harmful bacteria without destroying friendly bacteria the body needs. Research in nearly every developed country in the world confirms the antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory properties of propolis with respect to human and animal dental health.

“Bee propolis helps prevent the formation of dental plaque. It has very powerful antimicrobial actions and putting it in toothpaste is quite a novel application” says Dr. Joseph Mercola of the Natural Health Center in Hoffman Estates, IL.

Dog and cat lovers using DentaSure report a gradual whitening of teeth with the destruction of underlying bacteria. Tartar becomes unstuck and is left unsupported with no bacterial foundation. First results are usually seen within three to five weeks with progressive improvement as use continues.

It is important to note, however, that DentaSure can sometimes use a little “assist” at the final stage of tartar removal. Bones and cartilage are Nature’s ideal teeth cleaners. But you mention your Springer does not like bones or rawhide. Rawhide is difficult for most dogs to digest and should be avoided, and I’m guessing the bones you refer to are not real bones from a real cow.

Try this: After using DentaSure on your Springer for about three weeks, go to the back of the grocery store and ask the butcher for a fresh soup bone, just cut. Knuckles are tasty too. While you should never give your dog cooked bones (because cooking makes them splinter and get caught in the throat and digestive tract), dogs really love chewing on an actual bone from an actual cow, instinctively devouring their prey like their ancestors the wolves did. And you’ll see that hardened plaque melt away before your very eyes.

Mary, I sincerely hope this information helps. Please keep me posted.

From Our Doggedly Loyal Customers:

My only regret is ...

"I am the kind of person who always speaks up when I think I'm not getting my money's worth for anything. I am also not hesitant to give praise where praise is due.

With that said I bought some of your DentaSure teeth spray for my cat. I received it at the beginning of this week. After 3 DAYS of using this product her teeth have already gone from a scary looking brown and very unhealthy to a light shade of yellow.

I am absolutely blown away by how fast this product has helped her teeth improve and the fact that it's all natural is huge to me (the vet has been pushing me to pay $720 for a cleaning including anesthesia!!).

My only regret is not finding you guys sooner!! Keep up the great work!!!!" ~ Fred Brennan, Waymouth, MA

I am amazed!

"We have 3 dogs. One is almost 10, the second is 2 but is fighting Valley Fever right now and the third is 2 also.

We put the VF dog on antibiotics as soon as she began coughing. The old man never really started but I seem to remember he has had Kennel Cough before so he may now have some immunity.

The third dog started to cough on Thursday and by Saturday it was just awful to listen to. She was trying to hack up a lung and leaving foamy puddles of spit ALL OVER our house.

Thank goodness your Primalix KC arrived so fast. It came in the mail on Saturday afternoon. I immediately dosed all 3 dogs.

Overnight the cough was drastically reduced. I am amazed! I am continuing to treat all 3 dogs for another week.

Thanks for an incredible product. Please do not hesitate to use this review on your website." ~ Lyn Chambers, Phoenix, AZ

Don't want traditional toxic treatments ...

"Dear TripleSure,

We are pleased with the cedar and peppermint flea spray - it seems to perform as promised & that's a big deal here in Florida which is flea central.

Finally, a practical alternative to the nasty spot style flea pesticides. I will recommend this to my friends who (like us) don't want to use the traditional toxic treatments.

My dog also smells woodsey, a lovely side benefit. We sprayed the house and the combo is working. THANKS!" ~ Michelle G., Ft. Myers, FL

~ Kerry Jacques, Temecula, CA

I would also like all pet lovers to know ...

"I just want to thank you for your wonderful products and caring nature.

We made the decision to put Oreo to sleep on Tuesday. She was much worse Tuesday morning and it was time to let go. It was very hard as my husband and I wanted so bad for her to go on her own, but it was the right decision.

I know that your products helped give her a little more quality time with us than she would have had without them. I would also like all pet lovers to know the importance of spaying and neutering as early as possible - preferably before the first heat cycle - to decrease the chance of getting mammary gland cancer. Studies show mammary tumors in cats are 80% likely to be cancerous.

If I would have known about this risk, I would have started Oreo on the Primalix C-Care for cancer as a preventative measure long ago. I am going to continue giving it to my other 2 cats at least once or twice a week to hopefully prevent them from getting cancer.

Again, thank you so much for your kindness and compassion."

On a scale from 1 to 10, TripleSure gets a 12

“I just received my order of your flea and tick spray. Ok, at first I was skeptical, but now my wife and I are impressed. We see fleas or ticks on our German Shepard “Bumpers” or our Cocker Spaniel “Bella,” they get sprayed and – “Voila!” – dead fleas or ticks.

The buy one get one free was a good deal. A little pricey, but if you want the best this does what it claims and is worth the money.

I want to thank you for making a product that actually works. On a scale from 1 to 10, TripleSure gets a 12.”

~ George and Brenda Campbell, Defuniak Springs, FL

I plan to encourage my friends to try it

"The DentaSure from my order of a week ago is already working on my 2 maltese's teeth and they both like it, making the job of cleaning their teeth much easier for me and is much more effective than trying to brush.

Wish I heard about it (on tv) long ago! I plan to encourage my friends with dogs or cats to try it.

Thank you for your immediate response to my inquiry. You are very efficient!

~ Joyce Snelling, Sun Lakes, AZ

Nice to have found a product that works

"Just wanted to let you know that my 3 year old Pomerian no longer has any dark tear stains after using your Tidy Tears formula. What a relief.

As a retired dog groomer I knew most products were not successful and I wished I had answers for my clients who lived with these tear stains. I did not want my dog to have to live with it also.

Tidy Tears has all natural ingredients which I look for for my pets. Nice to have found a product that works after all these years in time for my Pom."

Your products and customer service are first rate

"Your TripleSure product and customer service are first rate. I have been using it on my Wire Haired Pointing Griffon for the past 10 months. Living in Minnesota we are in prime tick country. My dog has been in the thick of them on extended canoe trips, hunting in tall grass and daily trips along the Minnesota river trails.

TripleSure has prevented ticks & fleas. Granted, after water activity, it must be re-applied. However, this is a small price to pay considering not having the questionable chemical cocktail running through her from the standard systemic solutions such as Frontline. I have found that performance is enhanced if I take a minute to work in the spray by hand & finish it off with a light brush. Griffons have a double coat. My guess is that other breeds won’t need this."

~ K.C. Carpenter, Minnesota

I will always shop with you

"Thank you so much for offering these alternative solutions for really dangerous drugs vets give dogs and cats. I will always shop with you, and tell others."

I shall spread the word as much as I can

"I am very happy with the way my 9 year old lab has responded to your arthritis remedy. We were considering much more invasive methods, and now I am so happy we found your herbal remedies.

We are all the way from Istanbul, Turkey, and find ways to carry the remedies with us or with people coming from the US to Turkey. I really do think you are doing a great job for dogs and cats. As an animal lover I shall spread the word as much as I can."

~ Can Malta, Istanbul, Turkey

This product is amazing for dogs with Cushing's

"I wanted everyone to know that this product is amazing for dogs with Cushing's. My dog looked terrible -- pot belly, bones showing, dry coat, back legs with no strength. We have used this for 3 weeks and it has made a tremendous difference... Getting ready to order 3 months supply. Wonderful product."

~ Tammy Perry from Virginia

Primalix Blood-Sugar Balance ... it's a life saver!

"About 3 years ago my cat Timmy was diagnosed with diabetes. The vet put him on insulin injections which were a disaster and his health deteriorated greatly and he exuded a horrible odor.

I had my doubts about him being treated as a Type 1 diabetic as in the human population over 90% of people have Type 2, non-insulin dependant, diabetes.

So as my cat Timmy was practically dying in front of me I ordered your Primalix for cat blood sugar control. Within a short time of being on Primalix he recovered and also recovered from his diabetic neuropathy so he was able to jump again.

He has been on Primalix now for almost 3 years and the results have been wonderful. Also our vet is amazed at his progress.

I would, without hesitation, recommend any pet owner whose pet has blood sugar control problems to go onto Primalix----its a life saver!

With great appreciation,

Yours sincerely,"

~ Nigel Hyatt PEng (Ont), CEng, MIChemE (Professional Chemical Engineer) Ontario, Canada

"Just a note to let you know that Taylor's breast cancer is completely gone. This was on only one bottle of C-Care. She had tumors the size of pecans in both front teats. 4 years ago when she was 9 years old, she had a tumor the size of a Nerf football on her side. The vet said nothing could be done. It took 4 bottles of C-Care, but cancer completely cured. This is such a marvelous product, I tell everyone about it as cancer seems to becoming so common in our doggies.

Thank you so much for your research & efforts to help our precious babies. Seeing Taylor run and play, and play with toys at 13 years, is more than I could have ever hoped for! Please use this note to let others know that this product really really works. Thanks again so very very much!"
