Premier Dental Products Co. introduces Topicale™ GelPatch, which is said to be ideal for in-office use or it can be conveniently dispensed for patient home use. According to Premier, Topicale™ GelPatch is a fast-acting, self-dissolving, 18-percent benzocaine topical anesthetic - in the convenient self-adhering patch form. Surface anesthesia of oral tissues begins in seconds. GelPatch is site-specific, without running.
In the dental office, Premier reports that gel patch is ideal for use as a normal topical anesthetic - prior to injections (if desired, the dentist can inject through GelPatch) or in conjunction with routine scaling.
According to Premier, Topicale™ GelPatch is a practice-builder. Patients are said to appreciate the convenient single-dose packaging when GelPatch is dispensed for home use on dental sores, ulcers, oral irritations, or for use with orthodontic brackets. GelPatch is economically priced in packages of 25.
To receive a sample of Topicale™ GelPatch, dentists and hygienists are invited to e-mail Premier (dentalinfo@PREMUSA.com) or call (888) PREMUSA.
