C.E.T.® OraStrip® Dental Diagnostic Test helps reveal active hidden periodontal disease.

The C.E.T.® OraStrip® Dental Diagnostic Test is the latest innovation in the C.E.T.® Brand family of products for veterinary dental health. The C.E.T.® OraStrip® Dental Diagnostic Test easily detects periodontal disease that can hide beneath the gumline.

Additional benefits include:

  • Quick, reliable results to help you detect disease and treat sooner
  • Easy-to-use colored grading system
  • Evidence of hidden periodontal disease to show clients
  • Increased compliance for in-clinic and at-home dental care

Best of all, the C.E.T.® OraStrip® Dental Diagnostic Test complies with the latest American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA) dental care guidelines,1 which recommends using a thiol test strip to determine gingival health and periodontal status. 

The C.E.T.® OraStrip® Dental Diagnostic Test lets you see beyond the limitations of visual awake exams (VAEs).

  • In a study, the VAE was only 6% accurate in determining the severity of active periodontal disease in dogs with only mild inflammation2
  • Approximately 60% of the tooth structure exists below the gumline where bacterial activity can be difficult to detect3

FAQs

What does the American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA) recommend?

A diagnostic test strip for the measurement of dissolved thiol levels can be used as an exam room indicator of gingival health and periodontal status.

What should I tell my clients about C.E.T.® OraStrip® Dental Diagnostic Tests?

Explain to pet owners that active periodontal disease takes place beneath the gumline. That means that a dog’s mouth may look healthy when it is actually suffering from a painful infection. The C.E.T.® OraStrip® Dental Diagnostic Test helps provide visual proof of hidden disease so they can take action early.
