OraVital Inc. was established in the fall of 2007 in Toronto, Canada. The company licenses proprietary patent-pending technology called the OraVital® System to certified dental clinics throughout North America for the most advanced, effective and painless diagnosis and treatment of oral infections available today.
OraVital’s proprietary protocol of inexpensive biofilm testing, the use of prescribed antibiotic and antimicrobial rinses and unique home care regimen, dramatically halts the progress of periodontal disease, peri-implantitis and breath odor while controlling the oral systemic link.
OraVital® Proprietary Rinses treat the entire oral complex and are non-systemic. When used as directed by an OraVital Certified Clinician, the OraVital System can reduce bleeding on probing and shrink pocket depths by 80% within a few weeks.*
OraVital Inc. also provides a comprehensive, dynamic and scientifically-grounded training program to its certified clinics.
*These results are based upon a landmark study on 649 patients using the OraVital System. Results of this study were published in “Treatment of oral malodor and periodontal disease using an antibiotic rinse.” By Ken Southward, DDS, FAGD and Anne Bosy, RRDH, MEd, MSc, – General Dentistry, July 2013.
