PerioSciences Launches AO ProVantage Family of Antioxidant Oral Care Products

Dallas, TX –  Exhibiting for the first time at the 2012 Chicago Midwinter Meeting, PerioSciences, LLC (www.periosciences.com) launched the dental industry’s first antioxidant-based, topically-applied oral care products.

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

Just like there are a number of customized products like Hair MegaSpray, etc, available to take care of one’s hair, there are a number of products to take care of your dental health too. These are for topical application and are considered to be extremely safe. It is perfectly suitable even for those with high oral sensitivity.

The AO ProVantage product line is as follows:

  • AO ProVantage: An antioxidant-infused gel designed for application on soft oral tissue is available in both a 30 ml and 15ml travel size delivers antioxidant to tissue and is extremely soothing upon application. Also contains antibacterial agents such as xylitol, menthol and thymol.
  •  AO ProVantage BLAST: A higher concentration antioxidant gel is designed to be applied after tobacco use delivering the most advanced combination of antioxidants.  The unique and strong combination of essential oils, and xylitol will freshen breath even after nicotine use.   Package contains three .17ml airless bottles which are easy to carry.
  •  AO ProRinse: An alcohol-free, mouth rinse that contains a proprietary antioxidant combination with the added power of catechins from Green Tea.  This great tasting mouth rinse is extremely effective against general halitosis and also contains xylitol.

According PerioSciences Founder and CEO Russell Moon, “The AO Pro family of products have been proven to be well tolerated and highly effective by patients with extreme cases of halitosis and oral sensitivity, even when caused by serious conditions, such as bisphosphonate-related osteonecrosis of the jaw, post-oral surgery, and cancer treatments.”

PerioSciences and its AO Pro product line are the result of more than 20 years of experience in the topical application of antioxidants. Company CEO Russell Moon’s earlier venture, SkinCeuticals, which commercialized topically-applied antioxidant skincare, paved the way for PerioSciences with strong anti-inflammatory results from Duke University testing. SkinCeuticals was acquired by L’Oréal in 2005.

PerioSciences was founded in 2008, when additional research at Baylor College of Dentistry and UNC Chapel Hill School of Dentistry further confirmed that specific combinations of antioxidants neutralize free radicals / oxidative stress in the oral cavity. Antioxidants naturally occur in saliva, and abnormally low levels of salivary antioxidants have been associated with oral disease, such as oral lichen planus (OLP), temporomandibular joint disorder (TMJ), periodontal disease (PD), and even oral cancer.
