How do I use Oralive for greatest effectivity?
Oralive can be used as one would their regular toothpaste. Apply a pea-sized
amount to your toothbrush and brush as usual. After brushing, swish around the mouth like a mouthwash
for 1-5 minutes (no need to add water as you will produce enough saliva to swish) and either spit it
out or swallow it for it to benefit the pathway all the way to the gut. After spitting or swallowing,
do not rinse your mouth to allow the paste residue to soak into your teeth and gums.
What is the difference between Regular Strength Oralive and Extra Strenght
Oralive? How do I choose the right one for me?
Both formulas have the same basic foundation; extra strength comes with 10x the
potency of all the active ingredients. If you are generally balanced in the mouth with no specific
concerns in the teeth and gums, regular strength will be just fine. If you have an imbalance in the
mouth that you wish to manage or are prone to dental issues, extra strength is best. Once you are back
in balance, you may opt to switch back to regular strength so that your body can respond to the
potency of extra strength if/when needed. Many people will alternate between the two strengths -
regular strength in the morning and extra strength at night, for example.
For additional oral support, consider Super Gum Oil.
My dentist says I need a root canal/cavity work. Which products can help me avoid
In general, our products work best in the earlier phases of a concern, such as
prevention. Oralive is used by many people to help manage symptoms that lead to a root canal as the
paste can help oral cavity bring itself back into balance. As we continue eating what we eat, problems
can come back. In our opinion, with consistent use, it can maintain balanced conditions in the mouth.
One protocol that can help with prevention of a root canal and the bacterial imbalances that precede
and follow it is as follows using Super Gum Oil, Oralive, and ProAlive Probiotic:
Step 1- Super Gum Oil: place 2-4 drops in the mouth, swish with saliva for 3-5 minutes minimum. Spit
it out really well into a napkin or trash bin - do not swallow.
Step 2- Oralive "burrito" packing: cut out a square-sized gauze pad (to the length of the area that
needs support), spread the Oralive paste on, roll it up, and tuck it into the gum near the tooth that
is sensitive or in pain. Leave it on as long as possible -- up to an hour if you can. Repeat this
daily up to two times a day.
Step 3- The liquid ProAlive probiotic can be applied directly on the tooth. Keep 2-3 drops on the
tooth for up to 3minutes and swallow.
Do not rinse mouth with water or mouthwash after ProAlive and Oralive.
Results vary with each person, in part depending on how long the infection has been going on.
My teeth seem darker after using Oralive. Is this staining permanent?
Very occasionally, we hear from people who have darkened teeth after using Oralive
for the first time. This is not permanent. We believe that this is due to the type of natural
biofilm/enamel one has on the teeth that can become more porous due to eating habits, i.e., acidic
coffee, lemon, etc. and whitening procedures. Over time, Oralive can potentially help this biofilm
shift into a morphology that will not take on the stain. With most people, the Oralive actually
whitens the teeth. Consistent usage of the Super Gum Oil (a few drops swished inside the mouth or even
brushing with Super Gum Oil) can also help with stains as it contains oxygenated oils.
If there is no fluoride in Oralive, how can I be certain my mouth is getting
Oralive contains chelators from natural zeolites, bentonites and activated
charcoal that are designed to pull out toxins. The slight coarseness of the mixture helps scrub and
polish the teeth.
The Oralive product not only keeps the mouth clean, but it also provides extra mineralization to
harden the teeth because the natural clay has been fermented and broken down by friendly microbes. The
result is nano-sized calcium and silica from the fermentation by-products. To our knowledge, no other
toothpaste has this ingredient.
'I have a crowned tooth that was root canaled years ago; it has gone bad and is
now painful. Since my tooth has a crown, will your products work for that tooth? I do not know how it
can work through an artificial crown, that is probably non-porous.
In our experience and opinion, Oralive and super gum oil work well with a crowned
tooth. The oil and paste will be absorbed into the gums from the sides of the tooth on down. This is
the route the bad bacteria entered the crowned tooth in the first place.
What is the benefit of Super Gum Oil over Oralive?
In our experience and opinion, Oralive and Super Gum Oil work well together. The
Super Gum Oil is designed to reduce the pain and the infection. Those who experience bleeding, cuts,
sensitivity, or recession in the gums can benefit greatly from Super Gum Oil.
The content of my jar of Oralive loses moisture and it is not as creamy. Does this
mean it has lost its potency?
Over time, the paste can dry out, but it will not lose its potency. You may add
distilled water or food-grade aloe vera to rehydrate the paste.
