According to the National Institutes of Health, nearly 80 per cent of adults in the United States have gum disease from lack of proper dental care. Left untreated, it can lead to heart disease or stroke, and cause mouth abscesses and deterioration of the gums, alveolar bone and connective tissues that support your teeth. An all-natural treatment marketed by Call Nature as Oram Plus contains ingredients designed to alleviate pain, reduce inflammation and restore gums to a healthy state.
More than 200 species of bacteria cause plaque to build-up on your teeth. Left untreated, you could develop gingivitis or a more advanced form of gum disease called periodontitis, which can lead to bone loss, bleeding gums and inflammation of the supporting tissues in your mouth. In 1999 "The Journal of Periodontal Research" reported that periodontitis creates an aggressive immune system response against these bacteria by activating T cells in the lymph nodes near the infection site, which can contribute to premature births, bacterial pneumonia and cardiovascular disease.
Oram Plus, made by Call Nature, contains ingredients with antioxidant, antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties, as well as thymus vulgaris, one of the strongest broad-spectrum antibiotics available worldwide. A report from the Oxford Journals titled "Evidence-based Complementary and Alternative Medicine" and studies from the University of Illinois at Chicago concluded that plant extracts destroy hundreds of forms of oral bacteria and the P. gingivalis and A. actinomycetemcomitan pathogens that are the primary contributors to the plaque build-up that causes gum disease and gingivitis. Oram Plus is only available online.

The active ingredients in Oram Plus include myrrh and clove bud as antiseptics; curry plant extract as an anti-inflammatory; mauka, lemon rind oil, mint, peppermint and thymus vulgaris as antibacterial agents; and grape-seed and Vitamin E for antioxidants that support healthy teeth and gums.
According to Call Nature, brushing your teeth twice a day with Oram Plus will destroy all of the gum disease-causing periodontopathic bacteria strains in less than 30 seconds. Use Oram Plus as part of your daily hygiene ritual, and you may help prevent or reverse the effects of minor cases of gum disease.
The Food and Drug Administration has not evaluated Oram Plus. Call Nature, the maker of Oram Plus, cautions against use by anyone under 12 years of age, with a nut allergy, or who is pregnant or planning to become pregnant.
