HOCl for Dentistry
About San-O-Dent HOCl Solution
San-O-Dent is a medical grade, scientifically formulated Hypochlorous Acid (HOCl) solution that is produced to international standards. HOCl is a completely safe, non-toxic, non-corrosive, non-dehydrating and effective anti-pathogenic compound that is naturally produced in our white blood cells.
HOCl is produced in the body as our first line of defense against bacteria, fungi, spores, viruses, biofilms and other pathogenic micro-organisms. In addition to HOCl’ s potent natural antimicrobial properties, it also prompts the body's anti-inflammatory and cell-repairing mechanisms, assisting the body with the healing procedure.
HOCl is 100% biodegradable and is broken down when it comes into contact with any organic material and therefore leaves behind no residues. It is not necessary to wipe or rinse the area of application after spraying, dipping, wiping or submerging it in San-O-Dent.

International HOCl Approvals
Food and Drug Administration (FDA) granted it the highest possible safety classification:
Generally Recognized As Safe (GRAS)
Food Safety Inspection Service (FSIS): Non-toxic and recognized as a food Additive
Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) & Environmental Protection Agency (EPA):
Gentle with no harsh vapors, safe for babies and pets, and suitable for medical applications
Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) & World Health Organisation (WHO):
Approved as a disinfectant and antiseptic agent
Application: General Sanitization
DRINKING WATER: San-O-Dent is an effective solution for the disinfection of drinking water. It is completely safe for consumption and does not give an unpleasant smell/flavour at the concentrations needed to treat water. Water can be cleaned with HOCl at a concentration as low as 2 ppm.
AIR VENT SANITATION: Inside surgical settings air sterility is of utmost importance. HOCl is stable when vaporized and is effective at very low concentrations and on virtually any surface. An HOCl mister placed inside the HVAC system would be suitable for ensuring high quality air in a sterile room environment.
HOCl BREAKS DOWN VIRUSES: Viruses are extremely small and do not have cell walls, which most conventional sanitizers take advantage of to destroy microbes. HOCl denatures proteins and DNA, allowing it to break down the protein capsid, and halt the DNA replication mechanisms of the virus. Covid-19 is among the viruses that hocL is known to be effective against.
AEROSOL DISINFECTION: HOCl has a small particle size and is therefore stable when vaporized as an aerosol spray. HOCl is effective at very low concentrations and is thus still effective in small droplet sizes.
Application: Patient Care
GARGLING SOLUTION: HOCl is completely safe to be ingested at 200 ppm and is non-toxic, anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, and anti-viral. It has anti-inflammatory properties and does not carry a horrible taste. This makes it an ideal mouthwash solution
HALITOSIS (BAD BREATH): It can be sprayed onto the tongue and / or in the back of the throat to clean the mouth and assist in destroying the bacteria responsible for bad breath.
GINGIVITIS AND GUM-RELATED ISSUES: Spray this solution directly onto your gums before and after meals as well as whenever you feel discomfort of the mouth. It will reduce inflammation and assist in repairing your gums.
TOOTH ACHES AND PAINS: Spray relatively large amounts onto any tooth ache, cavity, broken tooth, etc. as often as possible to prevent the affected tooth from getting infected or going septic and assist in healing any open wounds.
SURGICAL EQUIPMENT: HOCl has incredible disinfection abilities, it is non corrosive and therefore can be used on all surgical tools to ensure sterility without damaging the tools.
LABORATORY EQUIPMENT AND MACHINERY: HOCl is ideal for use on utensils in a clean room / laboratory environment. Simply spray, submerge or wipe down any laboratory equipment with San-O-Dent to ensure the maintenance of that equipment's sterility.
