Oral hygiene is as important as ever. Keeping your mouth healthy means that you won’t need to seek emergency care for serious conditions like an infected tooth.
That’s why we’re proud to introduce OraCare at Country Club Dentistry. This remarkable new approach to a mouth rinse can help improve your oral health. It kills the oral bacteria responsible for gum disease, tooth decay, and bad breath. It also kills oral fungus responsible for thrush. It is also even effective against the human coronavirus responsible for COVID-19.
What Is OraCare?
OraCare is a mouth rinse that uses chlorine dioxide to safely kill bacteria, fungus, and viruses. Chlorine dioxide is a gas produced when we mix the two parts of OraCare, then let them rest briefly. Chlorine dioxide attacks harmful microorganisms in your mouth, as well as viruses.
However, it has no toxic effects on your own cells.
Benefits of OraCare
We are so excited to introduce OraCare because of its many benefits. OraCare:
- Kills bacteria, viruses, and fungus
- Neutralizes bad breath
- Promotes wound healing
- No burning
- Doesn’t stain teeth or restorations
- Breaks down biofilm
- Penetrates areas even flossing doesn’t reach
- Easy to use
OraCare is highly effective at killing pathogens. The active ingredient, chlorine dioxide, has long been used in other disciplines to kill pathogens, including viruses. The highly active chemical also breaks down volatile sulfur compounds (VSCs) produced by bacteria and food debris in your mouth. VSCs are also associated with poor wound healing, so getting rid of them, as well as the pathogens that infect your mouth, helps your body heal faster.
Studies show that chlorine dioxide is safe, and tests with OraCare show that it causes no cell damage. Plus, there’s no burning that you might associate with other chemical mouth rinses, and OraCare doesn’t stain your teeth or restorations, including dental bonding, veneers, and dentures.
OraCare is also effective against biofilms. Biofilms are when bacteria band together, producing a protective slime. However, OraCare can break down the biofilm, and it can penetrate areas in your mouth where you can’t reach even when you floss. This makes it a great complement to your oral hygiene routine.
Best of all, OraCare is easy to use. Just mix, wait, and rinse.
OraCare and Coronavirus
One of the great benefits of OraCare is that it’s proven to be effective against the coronavirus that causes COVID-19. In studies, it kills at least 99.99% of coronavirus. By having our patients pre-rinse with OraCare, we can essentially ensure that any aerosols released from their mouth will be free from coronavirus. This, along with other recommended safety measures means that our office is very safe from transmitting the coronavirus.
