The Prevora antibacterial tooth coating significantly reduces dental decay for long periods in patients at high risk of this common disease.
This topical drug slowly releases a high strength antiseptic (chlorhexidine) on the tooth surface. For many weeks, it limits the re-emergence of the biofilm which causes decay. It is applied painlessly by the dental and medical team with a mini-brush in a visit which takes less than 30 minutes.
In the first year of the Prevora preventive plan, the patient receives 4 treatments in the first 4 weeks. Semi-annual treatments are then recommended in a preventive maintenance program.
Prevora is the only approved professional preventive treatment for dental decay in high risk adults in Canada and Europe.
A new drug application for Prevora to the US FDA is being prepared.
