StellaLife VEGA Oral Care
in Pittsburg, NY
At DeStefano Dentistry, our mission is to keep the oral health of our patients in top-top condition. Of course, this means minimizing pain and discomfort during patients’ post-surgical recovery after oral procedures such as tooth extraction or gum disease treatment. At the same time, we want to limit the use of prescription pain medications such as opioids.
That’s why we now use the StellaLife VEGA Oral Care line of products. The products are natural and homeopathic yet are incredibly effective for accelerating healing and reducing pain.
Here’s more about how we use StellaLife VEGA at our practice.
What is StellaLife VEGA Oral Care?
The StellaLife VEGA Oral Care Recovery Kit is an all-natural trio of products for pre and postsurgical treatment with oral surgeries. Consisting of an antimicrobial rinse, sublingual/systemic spray, and topical gel, StellaLife VEGA has been proven to speed healing in our patients. It also reduces pain and decreases the need for opioids.
Why is StellaLife VEGA Oral Care unique?
Managing discomfort after oral surgery and other procedures has typically fallen to the prescription of various opioids, but this has created an epidemic of addiction in the United States. Dr. DeStefano likes that the StellaLife VEGA Oral Care product line is completely natural and contains no opioids or any other prescription pain medications.
These are the unique features we feel benefit our patients from Pittsford and the surrounding areas:
- Accelerates healing after oral procedures
- Provides pain relief for dry mouth, oral ulcers, dry sockets, cold/denture sores, and mucositis
- Is homeopathic and natural
- Hydrates the oral cavity
- Promotes healthy gums
- Freshens breath
Who are a candidate for StellaLife VEGA Oral Care products?
The StellaLife VEGA Oral Care Recovery Kit is for adults and children over 6 years of age. This kit of three products has been formulated to accelerate postsurgical dental recovery after wisdom tooth extraction, placement of dental implants, bone grafting, osseous surgery, connective tissue grafting (gum surgery), and various other dental procedures that can cause residual pain.
How effective are StellaLife VEGA products?
This trio of products has proven to speed healing and reduce pain while minimizing the need for prescription pain medication. In clinical studies and reviews, the StellaLife VEGA Oral Care product line has received a 91% clinical rating. The Dental Advisor, which has been a science-based publication that provides clinically relevant information on dental restorative products, infection control products, and dental equipment since 1983, has made StellaLife VEGA Oral Care products its Editor’s Choice Award winner for 2019. It was voted the “Top Oral Healing Product.”
How does the StellaLife VEGA Oral Care Recovery Kit work?
This kit contains an 8 oz. bottle of StellaLife VEGA Oral Care Rinse and 1 oz. bottles of Oral Care Gel and Oral Care Spray. The rinse can be used as a part of routine daily oral hygiene. It kills bacteria that cause cavities and periodontal disease, hydrates the oral cavity, and freshens breath.
When used to handle healing and pain with oral surgery procedures, patients start using the StellaLife Recovery Kit 3 days before their surgery. This increases their therapeutic levels heading into the procedure. The use of all three products then continues for a full 7 days after the procedures. The rinse is used first, and then the spray, followed by the gel. This is repeated 3 times each day, preferably after meals. The patient needs to refrain from drinking or eating for at least 20 minutes after applying the three products.
- Step 1 VEGA Oral Rinse — The patient swishes ½ to ¾ tablespoon for 1-2 minutes and then spits it out.
- Step 2 VEGA Oral Spray — This is sprayed 4 times under the tongue.
- Step 3 VEGA Oral Gel — This is applied to the gum at the surgical area with a cotton swab.
