Furthermore, the present invention also relates to methods for treating or preventing topically-treatable microbial infections, especially diseases of the oral cavity, oral malodor, and to whiten teeth, in humans or other animals, by utilizing the above compositions. These compositions are effective in killing, and for a period of time suppressing the growth of, the microorganisms which cause topically-treatable infections, especially diseases of the oral cavity, such as plaque, gingivitis, periodontal disease, and breath malodor. These compositions are also effective to whiten teeth.
