Accurate Breath Assessment by Dental Professionals is Important
Because Halitosis Indicates Oral Infections and Systemic Health Risks
Schaumburg, IL –May 4, 2016 – Nissha USA, Inc., the North American marketing arm of OralChroma manufacturer FIS Inc., will be showcasing the OralChroma® halitosis measuring device during CDA Presents Anaheim from May 12th through the May 14th at booth #2351.
The OralChroma® device provides quick and precise in-office analysis for the three volatile sulfur compounds (VSCs) that are responsible for 90% of halitosis cases. OralChroma® is a compact sized, operatory-friendly version of the large-scale gas chromatographs used in research laboratories.
According to OralChroma’s Business Development Manager, Hiro Uenishi, “We believe that dental professionals hold the solutions for most factors causing halitosis, but to date, no clinical halitosis measurement device seems to have truly helped them in effectively selecting and applying those solutions.”
OralChroma® enables dental professionals to provide their patients with accurate and objective breath analysis, which is important not only because of the social stigma attached to bad breath, but also because of the underestimated health risks it represents.
“It’s been clinically proven that the same bacteria that cause halitosis also cause periodontal disease, which has been linked to many medical conditions including heart disease, diabetes, dementia and some forms of cancer,” explains Uenishi.
One of the key advantages of using OralChroma® is that it differentiates each of the three major components of oral malodor rather than simply measuring the overall breath level. By understanding the degree of three VSCs respectively, dental professionals gain insights into factors affecting patient’s breath, being able to plan the treatment based on evidence.
OralChroma® works by having the patient breathe into a disposable syringe that is used to inject the breath sample into an inlet port of the device. The breath analysis process begins automatically, and the Data Manager Software displays the following three VSC readings and judgment against threshold value on a USB-connected computer screen in just four minutes:
· Hydrogen Sulfide – The VSC associated with poor oral hygiene and the presence of organic debris on the dorsum of the tongue.1
· Methyl Mercaptan – The VSC associated with periodontal disease.1
· Dimethyl Sulfide – The VCS associated with systemic (blood borne), metabolic (blood borne), or respiratory conditions, including otolaryngological (ENT) problems.1
OralChroma’s Data Manager Software also allows the easy storage and management of an unlimited amount of patient data, thus enabling the visualization of treatment progress and status in chronological order, which in turn motivates patients and enhances their relationship with the dentist and hygienist.
“With halitosis affecting 50-60 percent of the world’s population1, there’s a high probability that many patients of the average dental office are afflicted,” says Uenishi. “OralChroma® is easily integrated into an existing examination protocol and will help dentists and hygienists alike elevate their standard of patient care.”
During the CDA Presents Anaheim, Nissha USA will be offering OralChroma® regularly priced at $7,500 for $6,900 with the bonus of bundled laptop computer, and Data Manager pre-installed and ready to use.
