Thanks to Real-Time PCR technology, meridol Perio Diagnostics for the first time facilitates specific quantitative detection of six marker organisms of periodontitis. This provides an important decision making aid for therapy planning and therapy control.
The response to amine fluoride/stannous fluoride in patients with high and low predisposition to gingivitis has been studied for the first time. Both groups benefit, regardless of their inclination towards inflammation.
The results of studies of the active ingredient combination amine fluoride/stannous fluoride confirm its inhibitory action on bacterial growth and on the production of proinflammatory molecules. The high-tech test for detection of periodonto-pathogenic microorganisms proved itself through its high specificity and sensitivity.
On the occasion of the 1st European Conference on Preventive and Minimally Invasive Dentistry in Copenhagen, the ESPD GABA research prize for preventive dentistry was awarded to the working group associated with Prof. Dr Rutger Persson for their study of genetic predisposition to periodontitis.
Clinical studies prove the success of gingivitis prophylaxis using amine fluoride/stannous fluoride. Thanks to its good tolerability, this combination of active substances is recommended for long term use.
A new study of the elmex interX MEDIUM toothbrush verifies its high cleaning performance by reducing the plaque level by 9.1 percent and simultaneously reducing the tendency towards approximal bleeding by 66.7 percent.
