PeriZone™, the oral care division of MIS Implants, recently submitted its PerioPatch® hydrogel patch for an independent evaluation conducted by a leading dental magazine. Although the positive results won’t be available for a couple of months, we were pleasantly surprised to learn how many clinical evaluators found PerioPatch to be useful and effective on gingival pain and oral irritation caused by dentures.
That’s right! One of the most common complaints from newly-fitted and longtime denture wearers alike is that these prosthetics often cause gum inflammation and oral pain. Sometimes frustration with ill-fitting dentures and their resulting irritations causes their owners to avoid wearing them – never an attractive option.
According to these clinical evaluators, PerioPatch was well received by denture wearers who were tempted to put their dentures in an eternal effervescent water soak due to oral discomfort. It makes perfect sense – the PeriZone PerioPatch absorbs wound exudates, and in turn promotes natural healing.
What’s more, PerioPatch’s advanced formula also forms a protective seal over inflamed gingiva and oral mucosa, thus protecting them from further irritation that may be caused by eating or drinking… and denture wearing.
