The primary antimicrobial used with Perio Tray™ delivery is Perio Gel™ with 1.7% hydrogen peroxide. It is an excellent broad-spectrum antibacterial and antiviral agent with a long history of safe usage in dentistry.
Hydrogen peroxide is bio-compatible; no one is allergic to it. Humans make hydrogen peroxide in our liver. There is hydrogen peroxide in your mouth with every exhale and peroxide is in human breast milk and white blood cells.
Studies show that peroxide needs time to act against biofilm. The Perio Tray™ will delivery the peroxide deep and hold it there long enough to work. 10 minutes is the minimum application time and 15 minutes is ideal. At 15 minutes, you get a good kill rate and all of the oxygenating benefits. If patients wear the trays and gel longer than 15 minutes, it doesn't help or hurt them. It's just convenient.
In addition to healthier gums, patients will notice fresher breath and whiter teeth!
