How do its active ingredients work?

Monolaurin

It is the monoglyceride of lauric acid, the major medium chain fatty acid in coconut oil. The antimicrobial properties of monolaurin extend to nearly all Gram-positive bacterial species (except certain lactobacilli, bifdobacteria, and enterococci), which mainly compose dental plaque of dogs and cats. Te mechanism of bacterial killing by monolaurin, appears to be dissipation of the potential difference across bacteria plasma membranes.  In addition to its antimicrobial activity, monolaurin also prevents harmful pro-infammatory processes in vivo at mucosal surfaces, slowing the progression of periodontal disease.

Ascophyllum nodosum

Controlled studies demonstrated a positive effect of Ascophyllum nodosum supplementation in plaque and calculus reduction in dogs and cats, as well as improvements in oral health. However, its exact mechanism of action remains unclear. Ascophyllum nodosum is rich in natural compounds that have chemical action and are postulated to interfere with bacterial growth and accumulation.

Znok

Zinc

Zinc is an essential factor in more than 300 enzymatic reactions, many of which are involved in the regeneration of the extra-cellular matrix, the healing processes and the repair of connective tissue. In the oral cavity, zinc, due to its role in the production of collagen, allows the recovery of the gingival tissue. On the other hand, zinc prevents tartar formation, due to its ability to inhibit the deposition and growth of mineral crystals on dental plaque.

Taurine

Gram-negative bacteria use sulphurcontaining amino acids as substrates in their production of volatile sulphur-containing compounds. They have a distinctly unpleasant odour even in low concentrations and are the responsible of halitosis. Taurine inhibits the production of volatile sulphur-containing compounds in the oral cavity by chelating sulphur amino acids and their metabolism.

  • In case of periodontal disease: Periodontal disease begins with gingivitis and progresses through increased destruction of the periodontal apparatus, resulting in tooth mobility and eventual tooth loss. Moreover, periodontal disease predisposes affected pets to systemic complications affecting the heart valves, pulmonary airways, kidneys and liver.
  • Prevention of periodontal disease: Periodontal disease is the most common disease of adult dogs and cats of varying breed, gender and age. Surveys from several countries report prevalence rates of periodontal disease that range from 60 to more than 80% of dogs and cats examined. Preventive treatment is highly indicated for all adult dogs and cats.
  • Before and after a checkup and / or oral hygiene: Particularly in animals with gingivitis, Dentalkun reduces bleeding and inflammation of the gums and shortens the time of the intervention. On the other hand, like antibiotics applied prophylactically after surgery, the antiseptic action helps prevent infections after cleaning teeth.
  • In case of oral wounds or ulcers: Dentalkun promotes healing and prevents a possible secondary bacterial infection due to its antiseptic activity.
  • Control of breath odor: Bad breath can be one of the first symptoms of periodontal disease so, in addition to the use of Dentalkun, we recommend consulting the opinion of a veterinarian to rule out its presence.

 

It is not recommended the use of DENTALKUN in case of:

No contraindications have been detected in the use of Dentalkun. Attention! Dentalkun don’t remove dental stain.

Daily recommendation to be administered directly on the animal's gum and tooth line with the finger. Divide this quantity into 4 parts (1 part for each quadrant of the animal's mouth). Dentalkun's mucoadhesive capacity and natural mouth cleaning action will distribute the paste throughout the mouth.

Weight total cm cm per quadrant
<10 kg 2 0.5
10-20 kg 4 1
20-30 kg 6 1.5
>30 kg 8 2

 

For difficult-to-handle cats, put the paste on the top of the muzzle and he or she will lick it and apply it to the mouth directly.

It is recommended that the animal does not eat and drink water 30 minutes before or after applying the treatment. It controls plaque, tartar and bad breath effectively without brushing.

 

During how much time?

  • In case of periodontal disease: Apply once a day on a daily basis until symptoms disapear. Then move on to the maintenance dose (once a day 3 or 4 days a week). The product can be administered chronically without any contraindication.
  • Prevention of periodontal disease: Apply once a day 3 or 4 days a week as maintenance. The product can be administered chronically without any contraindication.
  • Before and after a checkup and / or oral hygiene: Administer daily for 7-10 days before and after an oral intervention. Then move on to the maintenance dose (once a day 3 or 4 days a week). The product can be administered chronically without any contraindication.
  • In case of oral wounds or ulcers: Apply twice a day (doubling the recommended daily dose), every day until the lesions heal. Then move on to the maintenance dose (once a day 3 or 4 days a week).
  • Control of breath odor: Apply once a day on a daily basis until symptoms disapear. Then move on to the maintenance dose (once a day 3 or 4 days a week). The product can be administered chronically without any contraindication.
