Fungal infections are typically treated with a prescription mouth rinse. Patient’s can only use it for a week and then throw it away. One unpopular part of utilizing that prescription product is actually that the patient has to swallow it. What OraCare provides is that same removal of fungi as this other rinse without having to ingest it. Plus, if it is someone who frequently gets fungal infections (immunocompromised patients), this is a rinse they can continue to use everyday, long term. So, this is great for patients who have dentures because a lot of times we see fungal overgrowth there. If they’re undergoing chemo and radiation, you see a lot of fungal infections there. All of these scenarios are great scenarios for a patient to be recommended to use OraCare.
