Preprocedural Mouthrinse Mitigates Viral Transmission
EverSmile PreOp Pre-Treatment Rinse.
Dental practices have begun to incorporate new protocols for patient and staff safety to mitigate the transmission of viruses and bacteria during treatment. These new protocols involve use of additional patient screening procedures, extra personal protective equipment, and preprocedural rinses. For preprocedural rinses, there are many new options on the market, with a variety of active ingredients and a range of recommended rinse times. EverSmile PreOp was formulated to provide maximum antiviral and antibacterial efficacy with a minimum amount of rinse time: 15 seconds.
SUPPORTED BY RESEARCH
EverSmile commissioned an independent laboratory study, testing EverSmile PreOpPretreatment Rinse against the human coronavirus, and the results were clear: EverSmile PreOp provided a 99.968% reduction of human coronavirus in 15 seconds. For the complete study, visit: eversmilewhite.com/studies.
Ensuring that patients rinse for a full 60 seconds can be difficult, so full efficacy at 15 seconds means greater compliance and a more comfortable patient experience, which offers peace of mind for clinicians. EverSmile PreOp comes in mint and bubblegum flavors, to ensure that patients of all ages enjoy the rinsing experience and are able to fully comply with directions. A shorter rinse time also saves chairside time with each patient. Additionally, doctors and patients both understand the safety and efficacy of hydrogen peroxide, and this familiarity with our active ingredient makes PreOp an easy addition to the dental routine.
EverSmile PreOp expands into foam while rinsing, so less product is dispensed while still achieving full coverage. For use, rinse 4 ml to 5 ml around the mouth for 15 seconds, and then spit. One dose of PreOp is 5 ml. Each 500 ml bottle treats 100 patients.
