Antibacterial mouthwashes – enhanced using natural ingredients

Sometimes you need an antibacterial agent – for example, if there are problems with braces or implants, in cases of inflammation or periodontitis, or following extraction of a wisdom tooth. In these cases, dental medicine turns to chlorhexidine (CHX) and so do we – but we have improved it to produce Perio Plus+.

CHX plus nature

Dentists have been prescribing chlorhexidine for almost 70 years, and for good reason: it works. In addition to CHX digluconate, Perio Plus+ contains natural bioflavonoids extracted from bitter oranges (Citrus aurantium amara): CITROX®.

Useful helpers - Even stronger effect

Even stronger effect

The bioflavonoids of CITROX® have powerful intrinsic antibacterial properties. CITROX® even enhances the antibacterial effect of CHX. Combining CITROX® and CHX digluconate, Perio Plus+ is proven to be exceptionally effective. A study on this by Malic et al. can be found here.

Introducing the CITROX®/P formula

CITROX® comes straight from nature. It is a natural bioflavonoid extracted from bitter oranges (Citrus aurantium amara) and is extremely effective against bacteria, viruses and fungi. To ensure it adheres well to the teeth, gums and oral mucosa for a long-lasting effect, it is combined with another completely natural ingredient – polylysine amino acids – to create the CITROX®/P formula.

Useful helpers - Good flavour at last

Good flavour at last

One disadvantage of CHX mouthwashes is that they taste horrible. This discourages many patients from using CHX-based products at all, despite the fact that they might need to. To combat this issue, Perio Plus+ has been produced to taste good – thanks to CITROX® and the flavouring that has been developed by the flavour experts at Givaudan.

Useful helpers - No impact on taste

No impact on taste

CHX mouthwashes have another drawback: they have an irritant effect on your sense of taste. This is only temporary, but it is very unpleasant. Thankfully, this issue is avoided with Perio Plus+. From orange juice to pizza, everything tastes as it should. Yes, we’re real CITROX® fans.

Useful helpers - What about discolouration?

What about discolouration?

CHX can result in discolouration of the teeth. Perio Plus+ can also cause this discolouration, but when it is used properly, discolouration is minimised. Furthermore, it is reversible – your dentist can remove any discolouration following treatment without any problems. Follow our tips for minimising discolouration.

Tips for minimising discolouration

During treatment with Perio Plus, avoid consuming tobacco, coffee, black and green tea, red wine, berries, curry and saffron. This will keep discolouration to a minimum. Clean your teeth thoroughly with a toothbrush and consider using a whitening toothpaste such as those from our ‘Black Is White’ or BE YOU ranges.

Useful helpers - Great protective film

Great protective film

Surgical sutures in particular need to be well protected. Perio Plus+ contains the copolymer PVP/VA, which can help with this. It forms a strong protective film over the teeth, gums and oral mucosa.

Useful helpers - Hyaluronic acid speeds things up

Hyaluronic acid speeds things up

Hyaluronic acid is recommended especially after operations. It regulates moisture levels, promotes cell growth and speeds up regeneration. Several Perio Plus+ products therefore contain hyaluronic acid.

Useful helpers - To sum up

To sum up

We recommend Perio Plus+ in all instances where a CHX mouthwash is prescribed – including for problems with braces or implants, in cases of inflammation or periodontitis, or following surgery. You can expect strong efficacy, good flavour – and successful treatment.

Useful helpers - Caution


Only use Perio Plus+ or other CHX mouthwashes at your dentist's recommendation. In normal circumstances, this product is not required – toothbrushes and interdental brushes are sufficient for cleaning the teeth, gums and oral mucosa. Always follow the instructions of your dental specialist.
