Question: My toothbrush is falling apart when I use OraMD.
Answer: Some cheaper brushes use plastic bristles, which will not hold up to the potency of OraMD’s powerful botanical oils. Make sure to use a brush with soft nylon bristles. Most name brand brushes are made of this material. Rinse the brush thoroughly with warm water after brushing. Avoid using foam cups, polystyrene plastics will not hold up to the menthol in this product.



Question: Can I use a Water Pik with OraMD?
Answer: Water Irrigators aid in flushing out the bacteria and pockets. Our recommendation is to use the irrigator prior to brushing with OraMD. OraMD is an oil and will separate from the water or sit on top of it if you use it in the irrigator, so we do not recommend using the OraMD in the water irrigator. This is again because some plastic components will not stand up to the potency of OraMD’s powerful botanicals. Avoid using foam cups, polystyrene plastics will not hold up to the menthol in this product.



Question: Can I use an electric toothbrush?
Answer: Yes, it is an excellent choice of practice. Be sure to only use a brush with nylon bristles, as cheaper plastics will sometimes not hold up to the potency of the essential oils in OraMD. Avoid using foam cups, polystyrene plastics will not hold up to the menthol in this product.



Question: Is it safe to use with braces/crowns/artificial dental work?
Answer: Although we have never heard of any adverse side effects, we recommend consulting your dentist before using the product.
