IRVINE, CA. – August 7, 2012– Dexcel Pharma Technologies, Ltd. has announced the online availability of PerioChip® for dental professionals in the U.S. market through its new website at www.PerioChip.com/order. The product is also available through Adrian Pharmaceuticals.
PerioChip® is an antiseptic, not an antibiotic. PerioChip® is a unique biodegradable chip which contains 2.5mg of Chlorhexidine Gluconate. It has been shown to be an effective and safe adjunctive treatment for patients with adult periodontitis with a pocket depth (PD) greater than or equal to 5mm, when used with scaling and root planning (SRP). Chlorhexidine’s active antiseptic properties kill bacteria without the risk of developing antibiotic resistance1.
According to Sigalit Hart-Moran, Pharma Marketing Director, Dexcel Pharma, “PerioChip® is a safe treatment for periodontal disease that is more effective than SRP alone2. As an antiseptic treatment, it also eliminates the risks associated with the overuse of antibiotics. Now, with online availability, it is simpler and faster for dental professionals to order.”
Available in 20-packs with limited time discounts.
For a limited time, PerioChip® 20-packs are available online for a savings of up 27%. Discounted pricing for one pack is $355.50, two packs $629.00 and three packs $868.00. Orders can be placed at www.PerioChip.com/order.
