"Sodium perborate " Wikipedia
Research Facts
Sodium perborate is a white, odorless, water soluable chemical compound used as a source of active oxygen in some tooth bleaching formulas. Used as a bleaching agent for internal bleaching of a non vital root treated tooth and bleach the stains from the inside out. It has antiseptic properties and can act as a disinfectant. A less aggressive bleach than sodium hypochlorite. Can be used in powder form as toothpowder or as mouthwash when used as a solution.
Dr Ralph and Mrs Olga Crawford donated their extensive Canadian dental collection to the DCF to create the museum in 1997; further donations were received while Dr Crawford was Curator Emeritus at the Dental Canada Museum until its closure in 2008.
