Dr. Michael Iwanoff's dental clinic as been certified to dispense the OravitalTM System, a powerful diagnostic and treatment protocol for oral infections including gingivitis (sensitive or bleeding gums), periodontitis (gum disease), and hallitosis (chronic bad breath).
What is OravitalTM?
The OravitalTM System features comprehensive microbiology diagnostics and targeted, topical medication to rebalance oral bacteria that are in an infected state. OravitalTM is patient-friendly, non-invasive, safe and very effective.
A healthy mouth for a healthy body
Oral infections, even when relatively mild, can affect the health of the whole body. Bacteria from the mouth can enter the bloodstream and create an immune response elsewhere in the body, elevating the risk of many serious conditions like heart disease, stroke, diabetes, pneumonia, and pregnancy complications.
Kids & oral infections
Did you know that bacteria repsonsible for oral infection are highly transferable? Studies show that if parents have an existing oral infection, it's very likely that their children have or will have the same oral bacteria. Whenever you give your child a kiss or share a drink, you also share your bacteria. Testing kids early and treating with OravitalTM when necessary will give them a better change for a healthier future.
Patient benefits after just 2 weeks:
- 87% reduction in bleeding points (bleeding gums)
- 76-84% reduction in periodontal pockets
- 79% reduction in breath odor
- Reduce oral-systemic risks
- Control oral infections

Your Baby's 0ral Health
It's never too early to start taking care of your little one's teeth. ln fact, proper oral health care should start well before your baby's first teeth even erupt. For a lifetime of healthy smiles, follow these guidelines to ensure your child gets off on the right tooth.
Just say "no" to bottles in bed.
Never put your baby to sleep with a bottle or sippy cup filled with milk, formula, fruit juice, or other sweet liquid. The sugar in these beverages can cause cavities in your baby's teeth, leading to "baby bottle tooth decay." lnstead, let your child finish his or her bottle before bedtime. lf you must give your baby a bottle when he or she is qoing to sleep, fill the bottle with water instead.
Be sure your baby drinks fluoridated water.
By the time your baby is 6 months old, he or she will require some fluoride for healthy teeth. Most babies can get all of the fluoride they need from the water they drink. Keep in mind that bottled water usually doesn't have any fluoride, however. lf you have questions about fluoride, talk to your pediatrician or dentist.
Clean your baby's gums.
Twice a day, gently wipe your baby's gums with a wet, clean, soft cloth. You should start doing this before your baby's teeth even come in, or "erupt." When can you expect to see that first
tooth? The average age is 6 months, but some infants don't get their first tooth until they are 14 or 15 months old. Some babies see their first tooth when they are as young as 3 months oldl
Brush new teeth.
Once the first teeth come in, you can clean them using a soft, flexible childrent toothbrush and water. Continue to clean your babys entire mouth, not just the new teeth. Gently brush
his or her first teeth with a tiny amount of fluoridated toothpaste. Switch to a pea-sized amount of fluoridated toothpaste once your child is age 2.
See a dentist.
Whether it's the first tooth or the first birthday-no matter which happens first-it's time for your childS first dentist appointment! Your dentist will examine your child's month and advise you on any concerns you have, such as thumbsucking. lf you are having trouble brushing your child's teeth, your dentist can show you a few methods to ensure you are doing a thorough job. Regular exams are essential to your childb oral health so be sure to keep regular appointments with your child s dentist.
