Why ORA MD is Cool For Dental Health…

So, why exactly is it that a blend of almond, spearmint and peppermint essential oils can have a powerful effect on your periodontal (gum) health?

Many essential oils have anti-bacterial properties. In fact, there is a very popular mouthwash (full of alcohol) that uses derivatives from essential oils.

The problem with alcohol is that it dries the mucous membranes of your mouth. Could you imagine employing the power of essential oils without the high alcohol content?

Now you can.  Read more about it.

Why Essential Oils?

Many people don’t know about the power of essential oils and it is not surprising.  Information on many important topics never make it to the conscious awareness of most human beings.

Sometimes, the people ‘in the know’ just don’t make a point of sharing specialized knowledge.  But, even when they do, how many people can they actually reach with their message?  The answer is: very few.

Please be careful, no one is saying that this is the cure all for any dental disease.  However,  you sure can see a lot of folks talking about this product. You can read some of what they have to say here.

I happen to be a ‘believer’ in the power of essential oils. They do seem to work.


Isn’t it strange how our human race thinks it is smart enough beat mother nature?

After millions of years of time to test her creations, wouldn’t it only make sense that mother nature has all of the human beings put together vastly out-gunned?

Mother nature created these oils. Their chemical makeup was not synthesized in a laboratory to be patented and mass marketed to the medical community that sells us prescription medications.

Don’t mess with mother nature.

A Powerful Tool For  Better Dental Health

The best tool that I have found so far is the Hydro Floss oral irrigator.

It attribute it with saving me from a Scaling and Root Planing or “Deep Cleaning” treatment.

We have pages of reviews on the Hydro Floss, starting here.

There is also  a free report.

You can make your own ORAMD for a tiny fraction of what the company charges. ORAMD has 3 ingredients, peppermint oil, spearmint oil and almond oil. Buy them online and get more peppermint than the other 2. I use 3 tablespoons of peppermint (it has the strongest anti-bacterial action), 1 tablespoon of spearmint and 1 tablespoon of almond. This will fill 3 ORAMD containers and costs less that 5 dollars. I cannot tell the difference from ORAMD with this ratio.

    Hi Mike
    Is your own formula OraMD still effective? Did you have any gum recession that has been cured beause of this?

      david - March 3, 2012

      HI Rube, gum recession will not go away. (unless you get surgery or a gum graft) what you are trying to do is reduce your periodontal pocket depths to three millimeters and below (as verified by your dental hygienist or periodontist) – generally speaking, most professionals will consider your gums to be healthy at that point. However, lost tissue will not just ‘come back’ on it’s own. But keeping your gums healthy from this point forward may help to prevent further recession. Brushing to hard is another problem that can cause recession.

    Hi Mike, Although you may feel like it is a good idea to make your own. I think the manufacturer has experimented and found the best way to do it. Also, you cannot be sure that the concentrations you mentioned would be correct between different brands of oil. Just my 2 cents.

What brand oils do you buy? I looked on Puritans Pride and they don’t have all three in a “form” recommended for anything but external use??? thanks

I am now thinking deeply on the importance of essential oils. I do hope to read more posts about these oils in your blog in the future.

    Hi John, I would like to approve your comment with the link included but we really need to see some useful comments and thoughts…. try again?

Hi Dave,
This is a pretty interesting information for me here. First time I heard of essential oils for gum health, but I admit that I am ignorant when it comes to dental health, so maybe this is a common or very old news. I like the sound of essential oils for dental health since it is from mother earth or it is natural.

    david - June 2, 2012

    Hi Andrei, yes, it is frightening the number of people who have gum problems and don’t know it (yet). If you know a dentist or hygienist you can just ask them and they will be able to tell you that the number of people is huge!

    When measuring the effectiveness of anything for this problem, you want to take a look at the periodontal pocket depths -which your hygienist can measure for you.

    Generally speaking, 3mm and below is considered healthy, Anything above is generally considered a problem. You always want to be working with your dental professional to monitor these numbers.

John - June 1, 2013

Well, I didn’t know that the essential oils can be effective for dental health to this extent. Good to know now. Thanks for sharing it.
