Research shows a significant link between your mouth and the health of your entire body. Certain diseases make maintaining healthy teeth and gums challenging, while oral diseases like untreated tooth decay, periodontitis, or gum disease increase your risk of heart disease, stroke, and Alzheimer’s. One of the best ways to ensure your oral health remains in tip-top shape is to follow the recommended oral hygiene protocol: brush your teeth twice a day, floss daily before bed, and see the dentist twice a year for checkups and cleanings. For some individuals, that’s not enough to keep their mouths healthy. That’s where OraCare can help.
Unlike regular sugar, which promotes tooth decay, Xylitol is a safe sugar substitute in many oral care products, including sugar-free chewing gum.
OraCare is safe for patients ages 8 and up and for use during pregnancy. The best part about this product is that it results in zero staining, no additional calculus or tartar buildup, and will not alter your taste. Plus, there’s no burning or stinging sensation! And it’s sulfate-free.
Using OraCare is simple and can easily be incorporated into your daily oral hygiene routine. The product comes in two separate bottles because the solution is not activated for use until you mix the two ingredients.
OraCare is perfect for individuals with gum disease or early-stage gum disease known as gingivitis. Nearly half of the adult population in the U.S. has some form of gum disease, and therefore, OraCare is ideal for most adults. Additionally, our Louisville dentists may recommend OraCare to individuals with a high susceptibility to tooth decay or gum disease. And for those that struggle to perform daily oral hygiene effectively. However, OraCare should not be used as a substitute for daily brushing and flossing. We recommend speaking with our dentists to see if you could benefit from using OraCare.
OraCare is not available in stores or online because of the active ingredient, Chlorine Dioxide, which is only available by prescription. It is not safe, nor is it recommended to buy OraCare oral rinse without first consulting your trusted Louisville family dentists and receiving a prescription for use. You can purchase OraCare from our office at Exceptional Dentistry.
