The Oravital® System is completely safe, easy, non-invasive, and highly effective in the treatment of periodontal disease and bad breath. Here's how it works.

When you visit an Oravital® Certified clinic, the dentist or dental hygienist will examine your mouth for any visible dental problems. He or she will also ask about your medical history to determine if you have any conditions or risk factors that could contribute to gum disease and/or breath odor. Next, your dental professional will follow the Oravital® System's five steps.

1. Screening

Using a swab, the dental professional 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 odor.

2. Treatment

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.

3. Evaluation

Following initial treatment, you will have another dental checkup to evaluate your gums and breath.

4. Maintenance

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.

5. Revaluation

Be sure to schedule regular appointments with your dental professional 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.
