One of This Century's
in Mouth Hygiene!
Soluble Avatol, the Only' Dentifrice Contain
ing Soluble Grit Read What This Means to
You Save Your Teeth Save Your Gums!
The introduction of a soluble dental
cream Soluble Avatol having the. well
known cleansing properties of avatol, is re
garded as one of the most important Achieve
ments of this century in the field of oral
prophylaxis (hygiene of the mouth) . It is the
result of years of experience and experiment
ing by a practicing dentist.
No thoue-htful Derson who reads the fol
lowing facts will fail to appreciate their im
portance. And no such person will ever want
to brush his or her teeth hereafter with any
thing but Soluble Avatol particularly as
this remarkable product costs (25 cents) no
more than ordinary tooth pastes, creams or
"Grit" Is Necessary f essential that every
si. tooth cleanser contain
some abrasive or "grit" to keep the teeth really clean
and free from discoloration. Therefore, any cleanser
for which the claim is made that "it contains no grit"
is of little ute. Indeed, it is exceedingly harmful if it depends for its
cleansing property upon some powerful acid or alkaline substance
which eats away the enamel, gradually but surely ruining the teeth.
Insoluble Grit Harms But while Wis
all realize that insoluble erit is injurious, especially
to those whose gums are soft and tender. In brushing
the gums with an insoluble dentifrice, 'thousands of
small, sharp particles of insoluble grit get into pyorrhea pockets and
under the gums at the necks of the teeth. This starts irritation, which
may lead to serious consequences. '
We all know what to expect when a hard, sharp,
insoluble substance gets into the eye. and is allowed to remain there
irritation sets in, inflammation and swelling of the eye follow if the
particle is not promptly removed. - '
Aggravates Pyorrhea J. with;
accumulation of such irritant material in the tiny ,
crevices and recesses about the necks of the teeth, un
der the gums, is universally recognized as a leading
factor in keeping up the inflammation in pyorrhea, or bleeding, ra
The entrance of the "ameba buccalis" parasite
found in all pyorrhea "pockets" is invited by this condition, and the
amebae continue the work of destroying the gum tissues. Gradually

not corrected before it is too late.

pyorrhea, or Riggs' disease, can hardly be exagger
ated. Reliable authorities state that fully 95 out of
every 100 adults are either afflicted with this destruc
tive trouble or are on the way to acquire it.
Soluble Avatol serves as an effective preventive
of pyorrhea. Its use means that the user has undoubtedly discontinued
using some dentifrice which contains insoluble grit Further, Soluble
Avatol is an excellent germicide. It stimulates and "tones up" the gum
tissues, increasing their resistance against bacterial attack.
Pyorrhea Preventive dtUS
reached too advanced a stage, your dentist can cor
rect the condition and save your teeth. During and
after the treatment the use of Soluble Avatol is strongly advisable to
prevent a recurrence of the trouble.
7 That the grit in Soluble Avatol is entirely soluble
is easy to prove to your complete satisfaction. You will notice that aa,
the foam in your mouth disappears the solution becomes thinner; this
because the grit also disappears. After the grit has done its work of
cleaning and polishing the teeth, it breaks up and dissolves. In den
tifrices containing insoluble grit this breaking and thinning out process
does not occur.
Prove Its Solubility w . jfj
clean bottle, add warm water and shake well. The
result will be a clear solution. No sediment will re
main in the bottom of the bottle. Could you have more
conclusive proof that Soluble Avatol really is soluble? '
. If any other dentifrice is tested this way, insol
uble particles of grit will settle at the bottom of the bottle. Ask your.
If whether yoa would ear to harbor these insoluble particles in your
month, in the inaecestibl placet about the teeth and under the gumsl
The New, Safe, Perfect Tooth Cleanser
i There isnothing quite so good as Soluble Avatol
for keeping the teeth clean, sparkling, stainless, anti
septic and wholesome. And at the same time it is the only dentifrice
that is perfectly harmless, containing no insoluble grit, no acid, no col-,
oring matter, no injurious element of any kind.
Don't let your children use anything else. y
You surely must realize the importance the
necutity of brushing your teeth with a product lika this. Then go
to your druggist this very day and get a 35-cent package of Soluble
Avatol. : , .
Tim. T.f Tll Nothing else will answer the
ine test i eua purposei u your druggist has
no Soluble Avatol In stock he will quickly get some
for you from his wholesaler. Try it test its cleans
ing power prove its solubility and you will become daily user and
