To explore this question a little deeper, let us consider a few questions.
First, what gives OraMd it’s power? According to the label, the ingredients include the essential oils of spearmint, peppermint and almond. This is a unique blend that the creator of this product believes will have the maximum impact on the bacteria that cause both gum disease and bad breath.
But, is there a precedent for the notion that essential oils can have an effect on the kinds of bacteria that cause these problems?
The short answer is yes – and we do not have to look very far to find that answer. Virtually everyone is familiar with a brand of mouthwash that is endorsed by the American Dental Association and that brand is Listerine. You may have heard of it…
Listerine has been used for well over 100 years. It was originally used as an antiseptic long ago. It was even used during the civil war!
Did you think Listerine’s power came from its high alcohol content? Many people do. But, a closer look at a bottle of Listerine will reveal something startling. In the ingredients you will find eucolyptol, menthol and thymol – essential oil derivatives. This is what gives this mouthwash its power. Considering that the ADA endorses it, there must be some clinically studied truth to the claims.
However, Listerine does have a high alcohol content and many people are turned off by that. That is understandable. With OraMD, you can practically avoid that effect because OraMD contains only the essential oils mentioned above.
Is it possible that you could come up with your own gum disease cure by mixing these oils on your own? Sure, anything is possible. But, will you get the mix just right? The creator of OraMD has already spent time figuring that out and did all the tweaks and experimentation for you.
There is also an extra-strength OraMD. Do you need the original or the extra-strength version? This is going to depend on you, the degree of your gum disease or gingivitis or bad breath issues, what you can tolerate, what you like, etc. Every human body is different and that reality extends to the oral cavity is what makes oral care complicated as well.
Will Ora Md help you to overcome your periodontal issues. Here again, it is impossible to guarantee such a thing because every situation and every body is different. But there are many testimonials on the OraMD site about how it has helped many people with their gum disease and bad breath issues.
OraMD may be helpful to you and therefore you can always try it out and get a refund if you are not satisfied with it. Therefore, there is really no risk in purchasing OraMD.
Interestingly enough, and many professionals will probably agree (just ask your periodontist!) that the daily mechanical breakup of plaque is very important. Therefore, those professionals may tell you that such a product may be helpful but you still should be brushing and flossing as well.
Here is the reason that the daily, mechanical break-up of plaque is so important in fighting gum disease and even in preventing cavities: The anaerobic bacteria that live under the plaque are shielded from oxygen. This allows them to reproduce quickly and because of the peculiar nature of their metabolism – they secrete acidic toxins onto your gums and teeth.
These secretions are thought to be the offensive agent that actually causes gum disease and bad breath! Therefore, in order to expose those bad bacteria to oxygen, you want to disrupt the plaque daily! Every day! Skipping a day does not work because it is the gap in time that allows the bacteria to rapidly multiply and create more damage.
Unfortunately, you can never completely rid your mouth of bacteria. And once, disrupted the plaque begins to form again immediately. Therefore it is a constant and ongoing battle to defeat gum disease / bad breath and prevent cavities. That is why we are told to brush and floss our teeth daily!
Now, getting back to those essential oils. Based on the explanation above, OraMD can be helpful in killing bacteria – but again, professionals are likely to agree that you should also be focused on the daily disruption of plaque!
This brings us to another important point. Dental professionals also tell us that up to 75% of people are suffering from some form of gum disease right now! That could include mild gingivitis all the way to advanced periodontal disease where you could be in danger of loosing some or all of your teeth.
One could speculate that if this is true, mere brushing and flossing, while of the utmost importance and certainly they should be continued daily, may not be enough to stop or prevent periodontal problems.
Could it be that ORAMD is the one item that pushes you over the edge to healthier gum tissue and to winning out over the statistics? Well, again, every human body is different and responds to gum treatments differently. Therefore, there is only one way to find if it will work for you.
