The Truth About Sterilising Tablets 

Sterilising tablets help remove stains and unwanted plaque buildup, offering advanced antibacterial action that leaves your device not just sanitised, but also odour free.

Despite their importance, most oral appliance cleaning tablets contain harsh chemicals that can harm both the appliance and the user. Chemicals such as Potassium persulfate are common in cleaning tablets despite research indicating their danger. 

In contrast, Zima Dental's sterilising tablets, backed by scientific research, are made from carefully selected ingredients that were chosen for their effectiveness and safety. Furthermore they were engineered to enhance the Dental pod's ultrasonic technology,.

The result is an oral appliance that is not just clean, but clinically sanitised, without compromising either the appliance's integrity or your own well-being.
