We believe so. There are many studies that link the reduction of germs and diseases in the mouth to better overall health.
Yes. OraCare™ helps to maintain white teeth.
Although studies have shown there is nothing better to eliminate bad breath, OraCare™ is much more than a mouthwash. OraCare™ is a health rinse and a tool for dentists to use to reduce the bacteria that cause many diseases in the mouth.
The active ingredient in OraCare™ is Activated Chlorine Dioxide. It is not harmful if accidentally swallowed.
You may have noticed that any time you get an injection from a nurse or physician that they always disinfect the area before the injection to help prevent bacteria being carried into your body by the needle. We believe this must be the standard of care for dentistry too.
It is a fact that bacteria and bacterial toxins deep inside a tooth or in gum disease can be brought out to the tissues of the tongue and other mucosal surfaces in the mouth during treatment. These should be removed as much as possible. It is a fact that the more bacteria and microbial toxins that are present in a wound area or injection area will delay healing and induce pain. Doesn’t it make sense to help promote healing and reduce pain after a dental procedure?
OraCare™ is very safe. The active ingredient is Activated Chlorine Dioxide which has been used for over 70 years by hundreds of municipalities in the United States to purify their drinking water. It is also used by hikers to sanitize water in canteens.
For best results, use OraCare™ dental rinse twice per day or as directed by your dentist.
You can come in for a Power Cleanse with OraCare™ as often as you like, or you may purchase OraCare™ from your dental professional for home use.
After rinsing with OraCare™, bad breath will be gone for 12 hours. Bad breath will be improved for 24 hours.

Yes, you can use OraCare as a vegan.
Bio Film is a sticky film of germs. In the mouth, it is called plaque.
You may use OraCare™ while taking antibiotics.
Bio film is reduced for approximately 24 hrs after treatment with OraCare™.
OraCare™ does not make your mouth germ free. OraCare™ greatly reduces the number of germs and the mouth gradually returns to its normal state in about 24 hours.
No treatment will be effective unless you follow it up with routine and proper home care. This means you should brush and floss regularly after every meal, and at a minimum of twice a day.
The key is not only to do it regularly but also to do it right, here is how to properly floss.
You should wind the floss around both of your index fingers, and push it between each of the teeth in your mouth, make sure to freely move the floss upwards, downwards, and even sideways to remove any food particles or plaque that may be lodged between your teeth or under the gums.
Many people these days use an electric toothbrush such as Sonic care, whether you use an electric brush or still prefer a manual brush, you should hold the brush at a 45-degree angle to your teeth.
Gently, but thoroughly rotate the bristles across your teeth and under your gums with a backward and forward motion. Be sure to also get the top surfaces of your teeth, where you bite or chew on food.
Your tongue can also be cleaned with your toothbrush, which will help reduce bad breath. It is important to clean the inside surfaces of your teeth with the same rotating motion.
When brushing it’s also important to use toothpaste that contains fluoride. Fluoride helps Harden the outer layer of the tooth called enamel, which will prevent cavities and also reduce bacteria in the mouth. It can also reverse the formation of smaller cavities.
Lastly, antibacterial mouth rinses can also help reduce bacteria in the mouth.
Please check with your dentist or dental hygienist if you have any additional questions.
