Plaque HD Featured in Oral Health Magazine
ORAL HEALTH, THE 1st CHOICE OF CANADIAN DENTISTS FOR THE BEST IN CLINICAL INFORMATION, PUBLISHED A STUDY REGARDING PLAQUE HD IN ITS JULY'S 2017 SPECIAL EDITION CELEBRATING THE 150TH ANNIVERSARY OF CANADA.
When patients do not remove the biofilm properly, we know it can create a lot of complications such as white spot lesions, enamel discoloration, accumulation of a pathogenic biofilm and gum disease, which can lead to periodontal disease, dental restorations, and even tooth loss and severe pain.
As we spoked in another blog article, disclosing tablets and solutions are commonly used in dental offices, but you now have the chance to offer your patients a toothpaste that incorporates a plaque-identifying dye. This study is stating something similar!: "Using a toothpaste that includes a plaque-disclosing agent was shown more likely to work for patients than using multiple products concurrently to achieve the same result". This toothpaste is named Plaque HD and will surely simplify the home-care oral hygiene routine of your patients. It is one easy step, it tastes great, it is not messy and it shows the patients where they are deficient in removing biofilm!
The conclusion made by Dr. Benjamin Z. Belavsky, DDS, in the Oral Health article was: "This study demonstrates that using a toothpaste with plaque-indicating dye, combined with instructions on how to best use such a product, significantly increases plaque removal efficacy."
If you wish to learn more about Plaque HD and its effectiveness, we invite you to read this full article called Evaluation of Plaque Removal Efficacy of a Novel Dye-Containing Toothpaste: a Clinical Trial from the Oral Health Website.
