The Divulge plaque identification product is an ideal modality to improve oral hygiene protocols and techniques by clearly demarcating where bacteria are located in the mouth and also on toothbrushes and orthodontic appliances.
Divulge stains the bacteria Streptococcus mutans and Streptococcus sanguins in the early immature plaque and Actinomyces found in older plaque. Their collective roles in carious lesions and gum disease is well known.
The huge advantage is that these swabs identify the maturity of the plaque which aids in verifying the effectiveness of cleaning regimes and condition of the gums.
Divulge Dual Coloured Plaque disclosing swabs highlight mature plaque a blue colour and fresh plaque, a reddish-pink, so patients can clearly understand how their brushing, flossing and interproximal techniques can be improved. Providing clear imagery of these deposits is of significant value in managing patients from a distance.
