Labrida BioClean®

Chitosan fibers

Labrida BioClean® is not a regular brush! Chitosan has optimal properties for implant and dental supportive care.

Chitosan is:

  • Biocompatible
  • Biodegradable
  • Bacteriostatic on common periodontal pathogens

Increased patient comfort and thus increased patient compliance

Labrida BioClean® can be used by all dental professionals and due to the reported low pain will increase patient compliance. The need for anesthesia is limited.

Use Labrida BioClean® for increased infection control!

Scientifically documented and used in numerous treatments, Labrida BioClean is designed for both surgical and non-surgical debridement. A safe, gentle and non-aerosol generating instrument

Gentle and painless treatment

Labrida BioClean® offers a gentle and efficient way of maintaining dental implants and teeth. Efficient cleaning of dental implants and teeth prevents disease progression!

Long term dental and implant health? Infection control is key!

Maintenance ensures implant and dental health!

Baseline examinations with X-rays and PPDs

Inform the patient about the importance of maintenance

Set a maintenance plan for the patient, 2-4 times a year

Use Labrida BioClean for maintenance and infection control

Give oral hygiene instructions

Implant and Dental Health!

Maintain without damage!

Labrida BioClean® with its chitosan fibers is gentle on the implant and tooth surface, as well as on the surrounding tissue. Scratching of the implant/tooth surface during debridement, may not be a problem if performed once a year. However, many patients need maintenance treatment 2-4 times a year. The chitosan fibers do not scratch the surfaces.

The Clinical Challenge

Peri-implantitis

  • 70 million implant patients – Globally there are around 100 million dental implants in 70 million patients
  • 20 – 40% experience peri-implantitis – 20-40% of these implants patients will experience peri-implantitis 5-10 years after the implants have been installed
  • Complex – Established peri-implantitis is very complex and involving to treat
  • Costly and difficult – Loss of implants is a dramatic situation for both the patient and the dentist. It is very costly and often difficult, sometimes hopeless, to replace lost implants

Periodontitis

  • 40% of the grown up population – World wide, about 40% of the grown up population suffers from periodontitis
  • The 6th most common disease in the world (WHO) – Periodontitis represents a public health concern
  • Tooth loss – May lead to tooth loss and oral debilitation
  • Prevention through maintenance – Regular maintenance is key to hinder progression of periodontal disease

The Labrida BioClean® solution

For patients

  • Regular maintenance treatment 2-4 times/year
  • Reduced inflammation – documented in clinical studies
  • Extended lifespan of the implant and the affected tooth
  • Gentle treatment of implants, teeth and surrounding tissue
  • Less pain and complication

For Clinicians

  • Good clinical efficacy documented in clinical studies
  • Safe and easy to use
  • A gentle treatment that provides increased patient co-operation and more patients continuing in the recall system
