The coming trend in dentistry is being driven by the wide recognition that the mouth is a window to the patient’s overall health. With the ParatusPerio ® Test, your practice can take a major step toward becoming a patient wellness practice.
Research has shown that people with gum disease are twice as likely to die from a heart attack and three times as likely to die from a stroke. With the ParatusPerio ® Test dentists and hygienists can take the lead in making major improvements to their patients’ overall health. The ParatusPerio ® Test is simple for the hygienist to use, painless to the patient and produces precise, chairside results in about 25 minutes to inform your clinical decision-making.
At the heart of the ParatusPerio ® Test is our highly differentiated, and patent protected, hand-held cartridge. Using the consumable cartridge is as easy as placing the swab in the cartridge, closing the lid, pushing a button and docking the cartridge to the mating adapter. The total hands-on time is about 1 minute. Everything else happens automatically and takes only about 25 minutes to produce laboratory quality, precision results. The hygienist is completely free to continue her exam of the patient while the ParatusPerio ® Test works unattended in the background.
The cartridge will be available to offices at a low cost to allow for a high margin income source for the practice. In addition, the mating adapter, smartphone, cradle and all software is provided to the practice at absolutely no cost.
