Periodontal disease is not just an inflammatory response to a bacterial infection that leads to tooth loss. It is a chronic inflammatory disease with multiple risk and modifying factors that prime individual patients to respond differently to biofilm-induced inflammation.
Patients can better manage oral inflammation with Perio Protect because the Perio Tray™ delivery of Perio Gel™ (1.7% hydrogen peroxide) suppresses pro-inflammatory gram-negative populations in the subgingival microbiome and encouraging the repopulation of healthier bacterial species. When delivered and held deep below the gums, peroxide works as a broad-spectrum antimicrobial, physically disrupting the biofilm matrix that protects biofilm communities and lysing bacterial cell walls.
Peroxide via Perio Tray™ delivery does more than just kill bacteria. Its release of oxygen – as it activates, peroxide turns into O2 + H2O – changes the microenvironment of the periodontal pocket so that healthy bacterial species repopulate at the expense of pathogenic ones. The environmental changes in the pockets thus have a direct effect on the changes in the composition of bacterial species in the microbiome.
Because periodontal disease plac a chronic low-grade burden on the immune system and exacerbates other inflammatory primed comorbidities like type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular disease, dementia, rheumatoid arthritis and others, it's important to treat at every stage. It's important to make Perio Protect an integral part of your protocols.
