A Bright Smile in Just 2 Steps: USANA® Whitening Toothpaste and Oral Probiotic
There is power in your smile. It can make you happy, even if you’re feeling blue. It can bring joy, comfort, and encouragement to those you love. It can soften hardened hearts and draw others closer to you. But there can be a barrier between you and the world if you lack confidence in your smile due to stained teeth, bad breath, or poor oral health. USANA Oral Care products provide gentle, effective support for the health of your mouth, teeth, and gums. The fluoride-free Whitening Toothpaste and Oral Probiotic combine the power of naturally-derived and scientifically-advanced ingredients for a clean, fresh mouth and whiter, brighter smile.*
Whitening Toothpaste and Oral Probiotic are designed to be used as a system. Together, they help keep your mouth and teeth looking and feeling as great as they do after a visit to the dentist. When used together, they help support a healthy-looking smile and minty fresh breath.*
- AM and PM: Brush away grime, food debris, and microscopic organisms as you gently polish and remove surface stains from your teeth by using USANA fluoride-free Whitening Toothpaste enhanced with ADP-1. (Read more about ADP-1 below.)
- PM: Replenish the good bacteria in your mouth before you sleep, so they can work overnight to help protect the long-term health of your teeth, mouth, and gums with Oral Probiotic.
Brushing your teeth to keep them clean is the foundation of good oral health. And maintaining a healthy mouth can also help contribute to your overall health and wellbeing.*
USANA Whitening Toothpaste and Oral Probiotic are the right choice to help you and your family live healthfully while maintaining good oral hygiene. The formulas use naturally-based ingredients that are safe, gentle, and effective. And, they’re free from artificial sweeteners or colors. That’s something to smile about.*
A Brighter Way to Ban Bad Breath and Reveal a Whiter Smile
Your teeth may seem small, but they have some big jobs. Teeth give shape to your face, help you pronounce words properly, and—most importantly—allow you to chew your food.
Chewing begins to break down food as part of the digestive process. This is vital for your physical health, because it’s how your body gets the nutrients it needs to function. And, the appearance of your teeth also plays a role in how you feel about yourself. So, a healthy, bright smile is equally important for your confidence and emotional health, too.*
Brushing your teeth twice a day, along with regular flossing between teeth, is essential to your dental health. Brushing clears away food, grime, and plaque (a thin, sticky film that forms on your teeth), which can go a long way in preserving your oral health.*
You have a lot of choices when it comes to selecting a toothpaste. USANA Whitening Toothpaste is a safe, gentle option made without harsh chemicals or artificial flavors or colors. So, it’s a bright choice for the whole family. This fluoride-free paste is made from naturally-derived ingredients. And it’s unlike many other toothpastes on the market, because it supplies ADP-1. This postbiotic helps support the cleansing process by targeting and clearing away unwanted compounds that can dull your teeth or cause bad breath.*
What is a postbiotic? Learn more about ADP-1 in Whitening Toothpaste
You’ve likely heard of probiotics, which are live organisms that can be consumed to deliver a health benefit. Or prebiotics, which are fibers that help feed bacteria. A new area of research is something called postbiotics.
This research has revealed that, in some cases, probiotic bacteria do not need to be alive to provide a desired benefit. The compounds that the bacteria produce or that are released as their cells disintegrate are sufficient to create a response. (These compounds can include proteins and peptides, enzymes, or other acids.)
The isolated compounds are postbiotics.
A postbiotic delivers the functional components from probiotic bacteria cells. But, the bacteria are no longer alive. This allows you to get many of the same benefits of a live strain in a product that otherwise could not contain a probiotic.
Live bacteria are fragile and can easily be destroyed during processing. Or they simply don’t survive well in certain types of products—like a toothpaste. Isolating the active compounds from live probiotic bacteria creates a stable delivery form that can be used in these types of products to give you the desired benefits.
The postbiotic ADP-1 in Whitening Toothpaste is an inactivated form of the probiotic bacteria Lactobacillus paracasei. Research has shown that ADP-1 is stable and delivers the benefits of the probiotic, helping Whitening Toothpaste provide an exceptional clean that can help maintain good oral health.
USANA Whitening Toothpaste freshens breath and offers a clean that lasts for up to 12 hours. So, your mouth will look and feel clean and fresh all-day long. And it’s been shown to visibly whiten teeth for a healthy-looking smile—without using hydrogen peroxide. In fact, tests from an independent lab found that USANA Whitening Toothpaste removed 78.3 percent of surface stains (relative to the American Dental Association Reference).

There’s one ingredient commonly found in most toothpastes that you will NOT see in USANA Whitening Toothpaste: fluoride. Many chemical-conscious consumers already drink fluoridated water and do not want to add more to their daily exposure. Using fluoride is a personal choice that’s best handled individually between a family and a trusted dental professional.
Beauty sleep is a real thing. Your body does a lot of work every night to keep you well while it recovers from daily wear and tear. So, take your evening dose of supplements, like MagneCal D to supply important nutrients that support strong, healthy bones and teeth. Apply Celavive Replenishing Night Cream or Gel to protect your youthful complexion. Then protect the beauty of your smile as you slumber. How? Put the growing science of the microbiome to work for you.*
First, brush your teeth with USANA Whitening Toothpaste to cleanse away plaque, surface stains, and other substances that built up during the day. This creates a clean slate.
Then take advantage of the nighttime hours (while you won’t be eating or drinking anything) to promote the good health of your teeth, mouth, and gums. Complete your oral-care routine by replenishing some of the beneficial bacteria that can help keep your mouth clean, fresh, and healthy with Oral Probiotic.*
Why do you need Oral Probiotic if you already brush your teeth twice a day?
The oral cavity has a distinct and diverse microbiome that influences your health—in your mouth and throughout your body. Researchers have noted that anywhere from 300 to 1,000 different species could reside in your mouth alone.
When properly balanced, the bacteria in your mouth play a number of roles, including helping break down the food you eat and acting as part of your immune defenses. But it’s possible to disrupt that balance.*
Most toothpastes, mouthwashes, or oral rinses have broad anti-bacterial action. This means they’ll remove most of the bad-breath-causing bacteria that you don’t want, but they’ll also temporarily remove the good bacteria you do. This means those products can potentially open the door to an imbalanced oral microbiome.
Cleansing products aren’t the only consideration. Factors like genetics, age, stress, and poor diet can also disrupt the natural balance of microflora in your mouth. This can leave your oral health vulnerable.*
By replenishing beneficial bacteria, Oral Probiotic supports a healthy balance to help maintain your oral health. Regular use can help promote healthy teeth and gums, as well as keep your breath fresh. (If you’re especially worried about bad breath, a tongue scraper may also help.) It also helps contribute to your overall wellbeing through improved oral care, which has been linked to many aspects of health.*
Each dissolvable lozenge of Oral Probiotic is formulated with one billion total CFU (colony forming units) of three powerful, patented probiotic strains. Each were selected for their proven effectiveness. It contains Lactobacillus brevis CECT 7480, Lactobacillus plantarum CECT 7481, and Pediococcus acidilactici CECT 8633. ‡
These strains of bacteria have been shown to work together to colonize the oral cavity so they can offer protective action. The bacteria recognize each other and stick together to form a barrier. They create a film on teeth and oral tissues that won’t be washed away by saliva. So, the probiotics act as a shield that will help preserve the long-term health of your teeth and gums.*
It is recommended that you use Oral Probiotic nightly to maintain the strength of colonization. Simply swirl a lozenge around your mouth for three to five minutes after you brush your teeth. Do not chew. It is sweetened with sorbitol and mint flavor, so it will leave a refreshing taste and clean feeling in your mouth. For best results, do not eat or drink for 30 minutes after using the Oral Probiotic tablet.
Get in the habit of using Oral Probiotic to help support your oral health, so nothing will dull your sparkling smile.*
You do not need visit the dentist if you take USANA Oral Probiotic and USANA Whitening Toothpaste together.
