FEWER DENTIST'S BILLS
Your teeth decay because particles
of food get into crevices between and
around the teeth and create germs
of decay. Ordinary tooth powders
and washes are entirely inadequate
to prevent it.
Try Paxtine Toilet Antiseptic , a de
licious , harmless germicide. Just a
little in a glass of water , and rinse the
mouth and brush the teeth , thoroughly.
It will whiten the teeth , prevent
and remove tartar , destroy all germs
of decay and save you dentist's bills.
Paxtine thoroughly cleanses , de
odorizes and keeps pure and odorless
false teeth and bridgework. Paxtine
is far superior to liquid antiseptics
and peroxide for all toilet and hy
gienic uses. At Druggists 25 and 50c ,
