OraStrip Questions

How do I use OraStrip?

What does it mean if the color on the pad isn’t uniform?

The result is still valid. Use the most intense color on the pad for comparison to the chart. Non-uniform color can occur if the gingival tissues are very dry or if periodontal infection is localized or unevenly distributed throughout the mouth.

Does OraStrip stage Periodontal Disease?

No. OraStrip measures the extent of the active periodontal infection. The only way to stage periodontal disease is through radiographs.

What does it mean if a dog with a history of periodontal disease receives a score of 0? Is this test valid?

Yes, the result is valid. A low test strip score in a dog with a history of periodontal disease means the treatment plan is working and that there is no active infection at the time of the test.
