iM3 iC Plaque. Why iC plaque is a must for every veterinary clinic! Plaque is the cause of periodontal disease. The plaque needs to be removed before it hardens into more calculus, forms in the gingival sulcus and gingivitis turns into periodontitis (oral osteomylitis). Periodontitis brings attachment loss, bone loss and eventually, tooth loss. There is systemic damage occurring in the kidneys, liver and heart when plaque is present in the mouth. The iM3 iC Plaque Disclosing swabs show when plaque is present on the teeth. These applicators are quick and easy to use. By simply rolling the swab gently across the teeth at the gum edge the plaque stains pink to indicate germ-filled layers on the teeth. This is a visible sign of periodontal disease. And it’s there simple and easy for your client to see. It is a helpful tool in painting a picture of the animal’s oral health for the owner. Useful when scaling the animal’s teeth to ensure that all the plaque has been removed during the procedure. Saves time scaling, by indicating plaque and calculus on the teeth – not stains. Will increase dental procedures within the clinic. Pack of 72 swabs. H1001.
