SYSTEMA ADVANCE Anti-Plaque Toothpaste | Malaysia

Did you know today gum disease has overtaken cavities as the leading cause of tooth loss in adults due to prolonged plaque build-up in between teeth, along the gum lines and in gum pockets due to poor brushing habits and it usually remains undetected for too long. A 2010 study indicated that 9 out of 10 Malaysian adults suffer from gum disease (NOHSA 2010). In a recent study conducted by Lion Corporation on 450 Malaysian adults showed 80% of respondents had at least one visible signs and symptoms of gum disease, most common being bleeding and swollen gums but only 1% realise that they have gum disease (Project Katsu 2017).
The main cause of gum disease is plaque the soft sticky film containing billions of bacteria. When plaque builds up in between teeth, along the gum line and inside gum pockets, the toxin from the bacteria will damage the gum tissues. Gingivitis is the early stage of gum disease where the gum is swollen and inflamed and bleeding during brushing due to the bacterial infection. If left untreated, it will progress to gum disease. Gum disease does not only cause tooth loss, but it is linked to other health issues like diabetes and heart problems. Lion Corporation Japan’s foray into the oral care industry started back in 1896 with the introduction of the tooth powder. Ever since then, oral care has been the core business and Lion Corporation Japan’s expertise is backed by more than 100 years of experience working with dental professionals and having their own dedicated team of experts and scientists.
Speaking at the launch of the new SYSTEMA ADVANCE Anti-Plaque Toothpaste, Mr Tatsuya Horiuchi, the Managing Director of Southern Lion stated that “Our vision at Lion Corporation Japan, is to continue being an advanced daily healthcare company and to lead the innovation in developing products that enrich the health, comfort and cleanliness of our consumers. Our goal in oral health is to empower Malaysians to retain at least 20 teeth up to the age of 80 years in order have a better quality of life,”
Meanwhile, Dr Ahmad Sharifuddin Bin Mohd Asari, the President of the Malaysian Society of Periodontology while stressing on the importance of gum health care said, “Gum disease is highly prevalent in Malaysia. Achieving healthy gums is possible with the effective removal of plaque in high risk areas such as the gum pocket and along gum line. Brush your teeth at least twice a day and visit the dentist regularly. Do not ignore the first signs of gum disease such as bleeding gums, red and swollen gums. Seek professional help if you have any signs of gum disease and get it treated immediately as gum disease is reversible at its early stage.”
