Clinical evaluation of SofScale Calculus Scaling Gel in dogs and cats

J Vet Dent. 1994 Mar;11(1):9-13.


An in-depth study was performed using SofScale Calculus Scaling Gel to determine its value in assisting animal dental prophylaxis as compared to nontreated teeth. A total of one hundred and five animals (dogs and cats) were tested. This gel saved a slight amount of time on animal full mouth prophylaxis in many cases, especially in heavy calculus groups. The gel helped to reduce total actual scaling time, but did not reduce actual procedure time.
