Using Orafate™ 

Orthodontists 

Orafate™ facilitates the rapid healing 
of gingival and bone wounds from tooth 
extractions and dental implants. 
Orafate™ works to relieve patients 
that are beset with poorly healing tooth 
extractions that lead to aveolitis, 
post-operative infection of bone left 
exposed by extraction. They are also 
challenged by perioperative gingivitis and bone infection from dental implants. This would help 
Orthodontists battle aggressive infections and inflammation from periodontitis.
