Activated Chlorine Dioxide is GREAT for Plaque Management!
We all know that fuzzy feeling on our teeth when we first wake up in the morning, this is dental plaque, also known as biofilm! Biofilm is just the beginning of many other problems, if we do not take care of it right away. It contains communities of disease-causing bacteria as well as fungi and some viruses! Poor oral hygiene can allow for uncontrolled accumulation of plaque and it has been associated with cavities and gum disease (both gingivitis and periodontitis). OraCare’s Active Ingredient Activated Chlorine Dioxide has shown in University studies and throughout history it’s abilities to break up biofilm. OraCare is a great addition to any oral hygiene regimen to help keep the mouth more clean and healthy!
An especially challenging time for patients and plaque control is during Orthodontic treatment. Braces make regular oral hygiene slightly more difficult. Brushing and flossing effectively are incredibly important during this time. Adding OraCare to your everyday hygiene routine not only will you be better controlling your plaque, but you will be keeping your mouth healthier as well. This is also something that you can use long term even after the braces have been removed to continue maintaining great oral health.
