To keep your patient’s soft oral tissues well and protected is important at all times, but even more so after dental surgeries or in cases of treatment-related dry mouth.
‘Perio plus regenerate’ mouthwash is specifically designed to support tissue regeneration in such instances, while acting as additional prevention from bacterial infection and more.
Thanks to its composition, ‘Perio plus regenerate’ has 5 distinct patient benefits:
1. Harmful bacteria protection and elimination
2. Prevention of bad breath
3. Enhanced mucosa regeneration
4. Teeth strengthening and protection from teeth caries
5. And protection of teeth, gums and oral mucosa
Let’s look at them one by one.
Harmful bacteria protection and elimination + prevention of bad breath
The two key components ‘Perio plus regenerate’ are chlorhexidine and Citrox®.
Chlorhexidine digluconate (0.09%) has been used in dentistry for over 70 years and is very efficient in eliminating harmful bacteria, which is critical especially after surgeries and such.
Citrox® is a lot newer ingredient based on natural bioflavonoids. Derived from bitter oranges, it’s very effective against bacteria, viruses and fungi alike. In ‘Perio plus regenerate’, Citrox® is further combined with polylysine amino acids to create the Citrox®/P formula. As a result, is creates a protective layer on teeth, gums and oral mucosa.
Enhanced mucosa regeneration
Hyaluronic acid is also part of the ‘Perio plus regenerate’ formula. Thanks to its water-binding properties, it humidifies the oral mucosa, accelerating re-growth of cells – hence regenerate. What’s more, the acid also protects the regenerating mucosa by creating a protective layer over it. This further supports regeneration, minimizing opportunities for infection and other complications.
Stronger teeth and protection from caries
Xylitol not only lends ‘Perio plus regenerate’ its pleasant taste without spiking blood sugar or insulin, it also helps keep the teeth healthy and protects them from caries. This is because oral bacteria (Streptococcus mutans) will ingest xylitol just like glucose, but can’t use it for fuel. Ingesting it leads to further inability to take up glucose, resulting in the bacteria dying out.
Teeth, gums and oral mucosa protection
‘Perio plus regenerate’ is unique in the combined action of several of its ingredients: hyaluronic acid combines with polymers to create a protective layer, while chlorhexidin binds to the mucosa and teeth, helping fight bacteria. All of this helps to keep the mucosa protected, reducing risk of viral or bacterial infection.
