Young Specialties has announced the launch of its latest product, Young PerioDT™. Young PerioDT is a debridement material that can come in either a liquid or gel form, which uses a specific Dessication Technology (DT). DT removes water from microbial material, necrotic materials, and macromolecules around the tooth and prosthetic surfaces in the mouth, per a press release from Young Specialties. DT is said to occur in less than a minute of contact.

It is said to be safe on both dentin and a variety of metals, making it a suitable option for any patient. A singular syringe will dispense either the red-colored liquid or gel for a full arch. PerioDT is indicated for caries restorations, periodontitis and gingivitis procedures, and root canal cleansing, according to Young Specialties. It can also be used for a variety of debridement procedures such as prophy in heavy plaque or biofilm cases, abscessed tissue cleaning, and the cleaning of prosthetics and orthodontic fixtures.

PerioDT is formulated with aromatic phenolics, sulfuric acid, and water, carefully blended to ensure optimal efficacy and safety. Its gel form is suitable for cases in which a thicker viscosity is desired, such as sites where the thinner liquid form may flow from the site of treatment. Per Young Specialties, the liquid is primarily used for the peri-implantitis and endodontic procedures while the gel is primarily used for caries and crown prep.
