What is Sockit!?
SockIt! is an all-natural, drug-free wound dressing designed to be used after everything from extractions and implants to grafts and hygiene procedures. After the initial application in the office, the remainder of the syringe is sent home with the patient to:
- Provide drug-free pain relief;
- Protect from contamination;
- Promote optimal healing.
SockIt! is made of all-natural ingredients: water, mannose polysaccharides, xylitol, and oils of cinnamon, clove and thyme.
Worried about microbial growth once SockIt! is applied? You shouldn’t be! SockIt! was designed and tested to ensure that this would not happen. Because oral pathogenic microbes have been linked to everything from periodontitis to infective endocarditis, we made sure that SockIt! does not promote the growth of these microorganisms. The following chart shows how effective its all-natural preservative system is against 17 pathogenic oral microbes. SockIt! killed all microbial cells within 30 seconds (No Growth indicates complete kill). These results were very favorable compared to those of a standard of care oral antimicrobial rinse (Peridex).
