  • GC Plaque Indicator Kit

Kit for Identification of Cariogenic Fermenting Plaque

GC Plaque Indicator Kit is a five minute, chairside motivation test which helps educate patients on plaque cariogenicity (the factors that can influence dental caries). This product also identifies areas of plaque location and production. It is helpful at identifying mature plaque (blue in color; more than 48 hours old) and fresh plaque (pink/red in color). The patient can now see that more careful attention to their oral hygiene is necessary in order to avoid future caries and maintaining a healthy oral environment.
