PerioSciences to unveil antioxidant-based oral care products

Exhibiting for the first time at the Chicago Dental Society Midwinter Meeting next week, PerioSciences will launch what it says is the dental industry's first antioxidant-based, topically applied oral care products.

PerioSciences will present its AO ProVantage family of products, which contain a combination of the antioxidants phloretin and ferulic. Phloretin and ferulic have been shown in university-based studies to neutralize free radicals that lead to oxidative stress commonly caused by dental materials, alcohol, nicotine, and the hydrogen peroxide used in teeth-whitening products, according to the company. Case studies reveal reduced inflammation and bleeding, as well as accelerated wound healing, in soft oral tissue.

The AO ProVantage product line is as follows:

  • AO ProVantage: An antioxidant-infused gel designed for application on soft oral tissue, available in both 30- and 15-mL travel sizes, delivers antioxidant to tissue and is soothing upon application. It also contains antibacterial agents such as xylitol, menthol, and thymol.

  • AO ProVantage Blast: A higher concentration antioxidant gel designed to be applied after tobacco use. Package contains three 0.17-mL airless bottles.

  • AO ProRinse: An alcohol-free, mouth rinse that contains a proprietary antioxidant combination with the added power of catechins from green tea. Extremely effective against general halitosis and also contains xylitol.
