STOP GUM DISEASE AND BAD BREATH
With the OraVital® System
Completely safe, non-invasive and highly effective oral rinse.
One of the most common causes of bad breath (halitosis) is poor oral hygiene and gum disease. At Enfield Place Dental Centre, we can help you control periodontal disease and bad breath in five easy steps using the OraVital® System:
The OraVital® System
Using a swab, our dentist will take samples of bacteria from your tongue, throat and teeth. These are sent to a laboratory, which conducts a microbial analysis to identify any harmful bacteria that are causing gum disease and breath odour.
If the report indicates there are harmful microorganisms in your mouth that are causing gum and/or breath problems, the dentist/hygienist will recommend an OraVital® antiseptic or antibiotic rinse that is specifically targeted to killing the germs causing your infection. You use the OraVital® rinse for approximately two weeks until the harmful bacteria are under control and a proper balance of healthy bacteria in your mouth returns.
Following initial treatment, you will have another dental checkup to evaluate your gums and breath.
Regular dental hygiene appointments and good oral home care will help you maintain a healthy mouth. Along with regular brushing and cleaning between your teeth, using an OraVital® maintenance rinse on a daily basis will help to prevent recurring breath and gum problems.
Be sure to schedule regular appointments with our office to check for bleeding or other gum problems. We recommend OraVital® microbial testing at least once a year to see whether the bacteria in your mouth are still in balance. If harmful bacteria are increasing, infection could return. It's easier to address any problems before this happens.
We know your health and self-confidence are important to you! The OraVital® System has an average clinical success rate of 85% in treating bad breath and mild to moderate gum disease.
