Izun Oral Care is proud to announce the results of an open-label study utilizing PerioPatch in the management of acute peri-implantitis. Peri-implantitis is an enormous and growing oral care problem that affects up to 36% of dental implants and can lead to significant pain, bleeding and swelling of peri-implant tissues (soft and hard), leading in many cases to the eventual loss of the implant.
A quote from John Comisi, DDS, from Ithaca, New York in the February 2017 Reader’s Digest magazine: ….Gourlay warns against mouthwashes that contains alcohol because it dries gums and also increases the chances of infection…….Dr. Comisi recommends PeriActive, an alcohol-free oral rinse that works together with a combination of three botanical ingredients (Sambucus, Echinacea purpurea, and Centella asiatica) to calm any inflammation and enhance natural oral healing. He believes the rinse has been beneficial for his patients, noting that it's helped freshen their breath while simultaneously giving their overall oral health a significant boost.
Izun Oral Care will be presenting at the GNYDM Annual Dental Meeting to be held in the Jacob Javits Center in New York later this month. GYNDM is the largest dental conference in the United States with over 54,000 attendees.

Izun Oral Care has been featured in this months issue of AGD Impact! We are proud to announce that our products were spotlighted in What’s Hot and What’s Getting Hotter. PeriActive and PerioPatch were found to be “…more effective than scaling and root planing alone and/or other over-the-counter products available.”
In the medical news, there has been significant coverage in recent years about two distinct but related medical issues: the role of inflammation in a wide range of chronic diseases (e.g., diabetes, cardiovascular disease, arthritis) and the growing recognition of the perio-systemic link (i.e., that treating oral infection and inflammation leads to improvements in overall health) (1, 2).
Lots of people in the United States suffer from periodontal disease, more commonly known as gum disease.This progressive disease affects the tissue surrounding the gums and the underlying jawbone. With the passage of time, especially without any treatment, this disease leads to reduced support for the gums and in many cases, loss of teeth. Periodontal disease is the number one cause behind adult tooth loss in developed countries.
Peri-implant Mucositis, which is a very common form of periodontal diseases, is somewhere associated with dental implants or replacement tooth. There is actually a minor difference between Gingivitis and Peri-implant Mucositis, as both these diseases are caused by the bacterial attack on gumline and area surrounding the tooth.
