Help & Motivate your Patients to Practice Better Oral Health Using Quick-Detect™ Plaque Disclosing Solution & Tablets
In today’s fast-paced world, information overload often affects our ability to grasp complex concepts. This is particularly true when explaining oral hygiene practices to patients. Regular brushing and flossing can help remove plaque, but since plaque can be difficult to see with the naked eye, it can only do so much. Fortunately, plaque-disclosing solutions and tablets can help your patients understand how much plaque they leave behind.
Plaque-disclosing tablets are a simple, easy-to-use tool that can help you see plaque buildup on your teeth. They work by staining plaque a bright color, making it easy to see. Hager Worldwide’s Quick-Detect Plaque Disclosing Solution & Tablets are ideal for patients to see the weak points in their daily home dental care routine and motivate them to improve.
Enhancing Oral Health Education with Visual Plaque Detection
Quick-Detect is easy to use! Your patient chews a tablet and swish the solution in their mouth for 30 seconds. After spitting out the solution and rinsing their mouth with water, Quick-Detect Plaque Disclosing Solution uses a two-color technology to indicate old and new plaque.
Older plaque turns blue, while newer plaque turns pink, thus allowing the patient to see which areas of their teeth require more attention. The solution would then brush off with toothpaste.
What Dentists are Saying about our Quick-Detect Plaque Disclosing Solution & Tablets
Sue Afeltra, RDH, from Naperville, IL, attests to the power of visual aids. She has found that patients, especially younger ones, respond more enthusiastically when they can “see” the problem
“These tablets helped with communication since patients can easily see the stained areas and distinguish between old and new plaque,” she shared. “Using the tablets facilitated the discussion of different methods patients can use to remove plaque, such as brushing, flossing, or using a water flosser or interdental brush.”
Allison Resnick, RDH, from East Northport, NY, agrees, highlighting how these tablets facilitate communication particularly with younger patients. “I suggest that hygienists give the tablets a try,” Resnick said. “The teens and college students were most interested and open to listening to home care advice. I am hopeful that this was an eye-opening experience—especially for teenagers because they were able to see their plaque buildup and what I did to remove it. I hope that in follow-up appointments, the patients that I used the tablets on will have improved home care.”
