Let’s face it, not every prophy is the same. Some patients make it easy, & some make you dread coming lớn work. Whether it’s a ton of calculus, plaque, bleeding, inflammation, or a combination of all of these, no one begins their day hoping for difficult patients. What if I told you a simple rinse used twice a day can help improve a patient’s oral health, potentially creating less complicated prophies?

Well, it’s true, as long as the rinse has the right ingredients và can be used daily. The ingredients of this rinse would have lớn break down biofilm, kill microbes (bacteria, viruses, and fungi), and be used regularly if we expect to lớn see a decrease in calculus, plaque, inflammation, bleeding, & stain.


Preventing calculus buildup is incredibly important, not only for patients but also for us as dental professionals. Tenacious, heavy calculus in hard-to-reach areas impacts us ergonomically. The satisfaction many of us get from removing large deposits soon fades as necks và backs start aching. In 2004, musculoskeletal disorders caused by poor positioning accounted for $131 million of lost income for dental professionals!1 On vị trí cao nhất of this, if your instruments aren’t sharp or if they’re of poor quality, this will increase the time you spend in compromising positions. Less buildup allows for easier cleanings, benefiting both you and the patient.

Plaque (biofilm)

We already know that calculus is formed from the lack of regular removal of plaque. Dental plaque or biofilm is the main etiologic factor for caries, periodontal, & peri-implant infections.2 The biofilm matrix holds complex communities that contain disease-causing microbes (bacteria, viruses, & fungi) as well as other toxic pathogens. Controlling biofilm is likely one of the most important methods of maintaining oral health và preventing and controlling oral diseases và potentially systemic diseases as well.


Because plaque triggers the inflammatory process, it adds to the body’s general burden of disease. In addition, “the oral cavity may act as a reservoir for pathogenic bacteria that can enter the bloodstream and affect distant-site or systemic pathologies.”3 It is understood in dentistry that someone cannot be healthy without oral health.


Bleeding (even light bleeding) is an indication of poor health. Many patients ignore bleeding and accept it as normal. They often blame us for making their gums bleed during the appointment. It is frustrating that their poor hygiene impacts their perception of the clinician. Patients simply need to increase their trang chủ care to have easier, more comfortable dental cleanings. Using a rinse can vì this!


Stain is another challenge experienced during many cleanings. Patients expect to lớn have all the stain gone when they leave their hygiene appointments. This can be an incredible task depending on the patient. Tooth staining is typically caused by a number of extrinsic factors. As a dental hygienist, I would prefer khổng lồ avoid giving patients a rinse that causes staining and additional calculus buildup. Traditional products using chlorhexidine do this, and we all feel this frustration.

Patients have khổng lồ be armed with the proper tools to help in between their appointments. Rinsing is easy & has high compliance. Ora
Care addresses the above challenges because the ingredients—activated chlorine dioxide & xylitol—can kill bacteria, viruses, và fungi, & break up biofilm. This hàng hóa does not cause any staining or additional calculus & can be safely used every day. Ora
