Directions For OraMD Use

These are the directions that come with the essential oil blend known as OraMD 

Oramd Tips For Success: 

OraMd  tips for success1. Remember, OraMD is your toothpaste, mouthwash and breath mint, all in one.  Use as and when  you would those products.

2. After brushing, tilt your head back and gargle with the solution made of your saliva and OraMD. This will kill the bacteria where it forms most, at the back of the tongue and will accelerate your success.

3. It is best not to rinse but if necessary due to the initial strong mint flavor (due to buildup of bacteria) rinse lightly and then decrease until rinsing is not necessary.

4. For pockets and receding gums, after the initial 3 day period, put two drops on the end of your tongue and swab the affected area (twice a day for several days) so that the oil will deeply penetrate and ferret out any remaining bacteria once and for all.  Then brushing twice a day will maintain a barrier between your gums and the bacteria/toxins causing you problems.

5.  A drop or two in the middle of the day will accelerate the improvement process by keeping your mouth extremely clean of bacteria. This is not a requirement.

6. NEVER USE ANY OTHER PRODUCT AFTER ORAMD.  Using any other toothpaste or mouthwash will diminish the results.  Teeth whitening is fine but must be used before using ORAMD.

*Please note that these are directions that come from the company that makes OraMd.  These are not my directions.

One point of clarification is that you will never be able to get rid of ALL the bacteria in your mouth.  That really isn't possible.   Therefore, you can never be 'extremely clean of bacteria'.  I'm a little surprised that it was phrased that way.

You want to reduce the population of the 'bad' bacteria so that they don't exist in sufficient amounts to cause damage to your dental health which could include destroying gum tissue, breaching tooth enamel and bad breath.  

You should also always go in for your regular dental check ups and cleanings.   This is very important to make sure that nothing has become worse. 

Periodontal Pocket Measurements

These are very important and are a more or less objective gauge to your dental health.   Generally speaking, when your pockets are 3mm and above, most dental practitioners will consider that unhealthy (gum disease). 

So your end goal is to get to three millimeters and below and keep them there.  Generally speaking, most dental practitioners will say your gums are healthy when all pockets are 3mm and below.  

One of the best tools I know of is the Hydro Floss Magnetic Irrigator

New HydroFloss Customer Speaks

hydro floss customer speaks
Today, a customer called because she had read my report on the Hydro Floss, which you can get here.

She was wondering what to do because she was always being told that she needed expensive treatments. 

1. Two SRPs in the last 4 years.  She said they did nothing to change her periodontal pocket depths.  SRP treatments often cost $1500 but can cost more.  (in the US)

2.  Now she is being told she needs laser surgery  $5000

3. She was also told that she needed two teeth pulled and implants installed.  - another $5000

She felt that something wasn't quite right.

Note:  You should always be under the care of a dentist or periodontist.  But, you do have the right to go get a second or third opinion.  You also have the right to 'fire' your current dentist and get another one if that is what it takes. 

So, anyway, she was reading about the Hydro Floss.    

 She understood the importance of the periodontal pocket depths and of getting those pocket depth readings down to 3mm or below. 

No one can guarantee that it will work for every single person.   Nothing works 100% of the time for 100% of the people.

BUT:  You can find out relatively quickly if it will work for you.


Use the Hydro Floss for a month.  Use it twice per day with two full reservoirs per use. 

Then go back to your dentist to get your pocket depths measured again.   Have they gotten better?  Then perhaps you are headed in the right direction.

Have they all moved to 3mm or less?   Fantastic!  You did it.  Keep it up to help maintain your periodontal health. 

Hopefully, your doctor or hygienist will be excited about your progress.   If they are not excited, you might consider getting a new one!    They should be very happy to see your gums get healthy again. 

Generally speaking, most dental health professionals will consider your gums healthy, when you get those pockets to 3mm and below.

It's always important to keep getting your regular cleanings and check ups at your dentists office.  Keep on using your Hydro Floss.  

She ended up going with the Hydro Floss and Pocket Pal combo that you can see here.

A Word About Oral Hygiene Products

There is a difference between oral hygiene products and it is potentially a good idea to be able distinguish between them.   

When it comes to oral irrigators, the best one, as far as I can discern is the Hydro Floss, which we sell here on this site,

Fighting Bad Breath

What many products are missing today is the power of oxygen and pH balance.  You can read more about both here.

Gum Disease 

This is  a really important topic.  Too many people have gum disease.  Many dental professionals will say 3 out of every 4 people have some.   This is a problem because gum disease is really the number one cause of tooth loss.

If you have been struggling with this problem, perhaps I can share some information based on your unique situation  - call 888-586-6849 -ask for David.  This will be general information, but it still may be helpful to you in a good way.    Specific information, advice, diagnosis and treatment has to come from your dentist or periodontist.

I sincerely hope that you will look for the right products and not just any product that sounds good.  There are lots and lots of products out there.  But which ones are actually well thought out and capable of providing real benefits?    I hope the resources I have given you above will help you to sort through that question.

Finally,  you may need help figuring this type of thing out.  Perhaps we can help if you are interested in having a low-key conversation about it.  Call the number at the top of your screen and ask for David .

Can Oral Care Improve With The Hydro Floss?

Here we are talking about your home oral care.  That is what you do at home between your regular office visits for cleanings and checkups. 

Your regular cleanings are very important.  The hygienist will clean the built up plaque and tartar from your teeth.    And your dentist will check to make sure that your gums and teeth are healthy.

Plaque and Tartar Are Your Enemy

There is such a concept as healthy plaquing, but that hardly exists today, except in perhaps a few very rare individuals.   So we will not talk about it.

For the purpose of this conversation, we consider all plaque and tartar buildup to be unhealthy.  For most people that is actually the case, so it is correct to view it in that perspective.

Under the plaque and tartar is where the unhealthy or 'bad' bacteria grow.   They grow very quickly there.

Therefore, your hygienist is there to remove that which you were unable to prevent or mitigate with your home care.

The Bacteria

The bacteria that grow under the plaque and tartar are what cause many dental health problems.  This includes cavities and gum disease.

Of the two, gum disease is arguably the more serious.    Gum disease is the  number one cause  of tooth loss.    If we are to believe most dental professionals, then 75% of people have gum disease.  That's 3 out of every four.   Some estimate even higher, some lower. 

Gum disease is the primary cause of tooth loss.  Out of all the teeth that will be lost this year.  The vast majority will be due to gum disease.  

An implant or dentures is usually the solution at that point.   Perhaps they are not perfect solutions, but they are better than nothing because an empty space in your mouth will cause the other teeth to shift around. 

These solutions can also be costly.  Implant costs vary greatly, but they are definitely expensive.  

Gum Disease

Your dentist will tell you if you have gum disease.  One of the most objective measurements is your periodontal pocket depths.  

Generally speaking,  3mms and below is considered healthy and above 3mm is generally considered unhealthy.   These objective measurements become important to you as they measure a more or less critical aspect of your dental health.

They should be measured by either the dentist or hygienist on every visit.  You should know what they are and ask for them if they are not provided. 

If you are at 3mm and below, then what you are doing at home is working just fine.   If you are above 3mm then it is possible that things can get worse from there. 

You adjust your home care accordingly until you are able to get your periodontal pocket depths to 3mm and below and keep them there (between regular dental cleanings).

The regular appointments with your dentist are still important.  The hygienist can get the 'trouble' spots (where plaque and tartar have accumulated and which you have failed to prevent)  cleaned up for you.  

This is the purpose of all the things we do at home:  Brushing and flossing are for disrupting plaque on a daily basis.  This helps to prevent the bacteria from growing quickly.  They need to be shielded from oxygen to do their damage and that is what the plaque and tartar provide for them - a shield! 

A Problem

However,  there is a problem.  We know that a lot of people have some gum disease right now.   So we have to conclude that for many people, regular brushing and flossing may not be enough to prevent problems and those periodontal pocket depths from getting too deep.

No one thing is guaranteed to work 100% of the time for 100% of the people.  Every human body is different.  

However, the Hydro Floss Oral Irrigator has made a big difference for a lot of people, myself included.    I was able to avoid an expensive treatment from utilizing the Hydro Floss.  My gums became healthy again!    I cannot guarantee that it will work for you.  But it has worked for me and a lot of my customers too.

You can improve your odds by reading these directions on effectively using your Hydro Floss.

Interesting Perspectives From My Customers

I had an interesting conversation with one of my customers who purchased a Hydro Floss today.

We talked about the work of Weston Price and potential problems with some popular health food items today.  We also talked about radioactivity in Europe and now on the West Coast of the US.

It is quite amazing how many of us easily forget about the radioactive disasters of yesterday that can be affecting our food supply and ourselves today.

Anyway, I digress.  We are here to talk about gum disease.  But, I truly enjoy the different perspectives I hear from my customers about all things health.  Regardless of whether I agree or not, it is almost always interesting hear various viewpoints from everyone.

At any rate, one thing we can be relative certain of is that about 75% of the population exhibits some form of gum disease right now.  Ask any dentist, hygienist, periodontist, or oral surgeon, they all know the problem is widespread.   That is why I believe every family needs the information contained within this book, whether they realize it or not.

A few weeks ago,  an anesthesiologist who also bought this device from me and works for a busy hospital told me that he was sure that gum disease had an awful lot to do with the cardiac disease they were constantly treating.  Many researchers have long suspected links between gum disease and many other diseases.

When you think about this, it isn't really all that new.   As you can see in history, one always checked the condition of a horse or other work animal before purchasing it.   Theyintuitively knew that a diseased mouth reflected the state of the rest of the body.   They would not buy work animals with bad teeth.    Isn't that fascinating?

Gum disease is a big problem.   Many times you can do something about it.   However,  if regular brushing and flossing were 'always enough', would we see the high incidence of gum disease that we do?  I will leave the answer for you to think about.    Perhaps you will draw the same conclusion  I have.

Knowledge is Power

If knowledge is power, not having enough would be ignorance then, wouldn't it?  Sometimes the technical language and professional language are a big barrier to understanding.
The subtitle to What You Should Know About Gum Disease is "A Layman's Guide To Fighting Gum Disease."

It is so for a reason.   I have put things in an easy to understand format and repeat the key points over and over again from different angles.   It is to drive home what this disease is and what you have to achieve to overcome it.   While the amount of effort varies from person to person, because every body is different, it is hard to get anywhere if you don't have the right information.

One key point is that the fight against gum disease,  regardless of whether you want to stop it or prevent it in the first place is a daily struggle.   No one is going to work on your teeth everyday, except you.  It isn't practical or possible to get a dental cleaning every day.  Yet, the plaque must be disrupted every day.

Perhaps brushing and regular flossing really are good enough for some people,  but what about the majority of people?   Again, you can draw your own conclusion.

Perhaps the book: What You Should Know About Gum Disease is one that belongs on your family's health book shelf?

Use the comment section below if you would like to add to the discussion.

About This Video And Book

 This is the continuation of my reading of the book: What You Should Know About Gum Disease -

In this video we touch on the  differences in qualification regarding general dentists and periodontists.   Sometimes, it is very important to choose the right doctor.

Periodontists have extra training (about two years) and gum health and disease is usually the exact focus of their practice.   If you are looking for a more exacting diagnosis and treatment options, I would suggest that it might be best to visit a periodontist.

That is not to say that the general dentist is not able to treat gum disease, they are.   But perhaps the difference can be highlighted in this analogy:  Would you rather go to a general practitioner or a heart specialist when you have a problem with your heart?

Gum Disease Is Everywhere

The unfortunate and perhaps inconvenient truth is that around 75% of people have some gum disease right now.   Most people want to believe they are in the 25% .  Their eyes will gloss over if you mention gum disease.  They would never imagine that they could be included in the majority of people.  

Unfortunately, dental professionals have given us this 75% number.  One need only ask a dental hygienist and she will be able to tell you just how bad it is.   She sees it every day.  

People are lacking the right information 

Gum disease is simple but it is also very complex.  It is simple to understand what it is, relatively speaking.  But fighting it is a bit more complex. 

You see, every human body is different.   That means it takes a different amount of effort from each person to control this problem to the point that it is no longer causing damage in your mouth.  

Each person is different.  Some people can honestly get away with normal brushing and flossing and they are fine.   Others, need to do a lot more every day to keep their gums healthy. 

Since most people are probably brushing and flossing, it is easy to understand that brushing and flossing, do not work for everyone.   Otherwise, the 75% figure could not exist.  

I have also found that many people just don't undertstand the basic facts about this disease.  If they did, they would certainly have  a better chance of defeating the problem.   In this case, it is really true that ignorance is not bliss!  

I hope that you will now take the time to educate yourself and be better equipped to protect yourself and your family against this problem.

What You Should Know About Gum Disease - Part 11

What You Should Know About Gum Disease Part 11 On Video

This book is available in its entirety here.

Information about gum disease remains fairly basic.

1. About 75% of people have some form of it right now.  (This is according to dental professionals)

2. Gum Disease is the number one cause of Tooth Loss!

It Saddens Me That People Don't Know

There are people who have lost teeth, have implants or dentures and still may be entirely unaware that the problem was caused by gum disease.

This is the reality however.  If you think about it, this makes sense.

75%  equates to 3 out of every four people!   That means if you line yourself up with 10 of your friends 7 or 8 of you have gum disease! 

Yet, most people are very quick to jump on the "I am not one of them"  band wagon.    They just don't know or do not believe they are part of the 75%.   Everyone cannot be in the other 25%.


Misunderstandings Abound

Many people think that their dentist has said they are ok or whatever.   However, that could be a misunderstanding.    Sometimes, ok just means:  "We don't need to take any action right now".

But, when it is time to take action, it can be quite costly and expensive.   And one is surprised with the pronouncement that they do indeed have gum disease.

Gingivitis IS gum disease.   This is another misconception.   Gum disease, gingivitis, periodontal disease, these are all different stages of the SAME disease process.   They are all gum disease.

They all require attention.  While it is true that the damage in gingivitis is reversible, the line between gum disease and gingivitis can be crossed at any moment.  Do any of us know when that exact moment is?

So, all of it requires immediate attention.

Save Money, Time And Pain

 Gum surgeries and tooth (or teeth) replacements are costly.  There can be pain involved and your time of going to the office, having the work done and then recovery are all important chunks of your life.  

Why not avoid all of that in the beginning.   Learn all that you can about this VERY common problem.  Start to protect your family and yourself today.
