OraCare Debuts New Implant Post-Op Care System

BRIDGEPORT, W. Va.—OraCare has announced the launch of its new product, the Implant Post-Op Care System, designed to protect implants from peri-implantitis, the No. 1 cause of implant failure.

According to OraCare, ten percent of all dental implants fail and nearly half are infected by gum disease (peri-implantitis), which can affect the stability and cosmetic outcome of the implant. 

“Most dentists do nothing to prevent peri-implantitis,” said Dr. Robert Martino, OraCare CEO. “Some try to use chlorhexidine, but it is actually contraindicated for use with implants. It will cause staining and calculus buildup and inhibit gingival-healing fibroblasts from forming, in addition to many other side effects. That’s why we created this solution. The OraCare Implant Post-Op Care System was specifically designed for use with implants. The active ingredients have been shown to kill bacteria, viruses, fungi, neutralize volatile sulfur compounds, and break up biofilm. No other product addresses all of these issues.” 

The main ingredients in the OraCare system are activated chlorine dioxide, aloe and xylitol, which provide efficacy without causing staining and calculus buildup. This integrated system provides an in-office gel and a take-home patient rinse. The gel is for the doctor to use in-office immediately following implant placement, but it can also be used around an existing failing implant. The rinse is for the patient to use at home during the 30- to 34-day healing time, keeping the area clean during this critical time. For long-term implant maintenance, the company also provides a daily health rinse that patients start using once the healing process ends. With similar ingredients, the rinse provides the extended protection that implants need. 

“This system is like low-cost insurance to prevent one of the biggest catastrophes in the dental office, implant failure,” said Martino. "While the system is designed for surgical cases, it can also be used to rehabilitate an implant with peri-implantitis."
