Solutions for gum care in teeth and implants

14th September 2012 0

The prevention and treatment of periodontal or peri-implant diseases should focus on the disorganisation of bacterial plaque (oral biofilm) and the reduction of bacteria that cause these diseases.

Chemical treatment

The specific formulations of Perio•Aid (Chlorhexidine + Cetylpyridinium chloride) and VITIS® gingival (0.05% Cetylpyridinium chloride, Permethol, Panthenol, Zinc lactate, Sodium fluoride) control oral microbial load, as they penetrate the oral biofilm (bacterial plaque), ensuring maximum efficacy in treatment, maintenance and prevention of periodontal and peri-implant diseases.

Perio•Aid Treatment

Maximum efficacy in the control of periodontal pathogens1 It is effective in treating oral candidiasis2

12% Chlorhexidine + 0.05% Cetylpyridinium chloride

Perio•Aid Maintenance

Indicated for long periods of time to prevent recurrence Helps non-compliant patients fulfil treatment3 Minimal side effects3,4

0.05% Chlorhexidine + 0.05% Cetylpyridinium chloride

VITIS® gingival

Maximum guarantee in the prevention of gum diseases5 Antiseptic action and gum care Daily use

0.05% Cetylpyridinium chloride, Permethol, Panthenol, Zinc lactate, Sodium fluoride

Mechanical Treatment

In order to efficiently disorganise bacterial plaque (oral biofilm) proper toothbrushing is needed. Toothbrushing breaks up the oral biofilm matrix, allowing antimicrobial agents to work more effectively. The design, shape, size and bristle strength of VITIS® toothbrushes provide more personalised and effective hygiene for every need.



VITIS® gingival

Soft and end-rounded filaments that provide more gentle and effective cleaning while they massage gums without causing damage.

VITIS® Perio

Treatment of periodontal disease and of wide spaces (diastemata).

VITIS® Surgical

Situations that require extremely gentle cleaning: after surgery, when aphthae are present, oral irritations, etc.

VITIS® Ultrasoft

Indicated for extremely sensitive teeth or gums. In mouths that are irritated or that contain ulcers and in post-surgical phases, after using the VITIS® Surgical toothbrush.

VITIS® implant/sulcular

Soft filaments arranged in two rows for better access to the gingival and/or peri-implant sulcus.

VITIS® implant angular

Increases accessibility to implants, helping reach areas that are difficult to clean as are the internal (palatine or lingual) sides.

VITIS® implant monotip

Filaments arranged in one sole tuft for greatest cleaning precision.

VITIS® implant brush

Daily use toothbrush for care and hygiene in people with implants.
