OraVital - professional treatment for gum disease, bad breath, halitosis, gingivitis, periodontitis


OraVital® Research Overview

The OraVital® System is evidence-based. Our philosophy is directed by research and science. The basis of the scientific precepts of OraVital® evolved from the 15 years of research and successful clinical evidence in the Fresh Breath Clinic operated by Anne Bosy and Dr. Julian Geller, DDS, as well as the extensive research of Dr. Walter Loesche. We identify the underlying causes of the problem through a series of analytical steps. Our belief is that if you treat the cause, you will eliminate the infection.

While it was once widely believed that periodontal infections were generally caused by poor oral hygiene and systemic diseases, we now know that this is not true! We also know that a large number of the general population suffers from periodontal disease that is undetected and untreated.

We have learned that when bacterial levels in the mouth are above normal, the conflict between bacteria and the immune system results in an inflammatory response. When this happens a variety of mediators are generated and released by the tissues. Both the mediators and pathogens can move into the bloodstream and negatively impact on a person's oral and systemic health.

Current OraVital® research

The study analysing the treatment effects of the antibiotic rinse on a group of 649 patients has been completed. The diagram below illustrates the significant pre and post treatment differences in pocket depth after a two week application. The statistics for this study were compiled by Dr. Walter Loesche (Marcus Ward Professor Emeritus School of Dentistry / Professor Emeritus of Microbiology & Immunology, School of Medicine University of Michigan) and Dr. Niko Kacirotis (Associate Research Scientist, Department of Biostatistics and Bioinformatics, Center for Human Growth and Development, University of Michigan).

A second study identifying the effects of various dilutions of our antibiotic on selected oral microorganisms has been completed showing very positive results.
