Perio Plus+ Forte
Containing the highest concentration of CHX, Perio Plus+ Forte offers excellent anti-bacterial protection against oral bacteria, preventing the formation and accumulation of plaque. Perio Plus+ Forte is ideal for short-term use, prior to and after invasive dental procedures.
Perio Plus+ Protect
As it contains a slightly less concentrated solution of CHX, Perio Plus+ Protect is an ideal mouth rinse for extended use in protecting against a wide range of oral diseases – including gingivitis and periodontitis.
Perio Plus+ Regenerate
Perio Plus+ Regenerate provides intensive care following oral surgery. It combines HA and CHX to promote effective regeneration of oral tissues for improved post-surgical results. Perio Plus+ Regenerate helps to speed up the recovery period.
Perio Plus+ Balance
Perio Plus+ Balance can benefit patients who are at increased risk of dental disease, as well as patients with limited dexterity and those undergoing orthodontic treatment. This mouth rinse is designed for long-term maintenance of the oral cavity, offering supreme protection against pathogens associated with dental caries, gingivitis and periodontitis.
Perio Plus+ Focus
Designed to provide intensive care to targeted areas of the oral cavity, Perio Plus+ Focus can be easily applied, preventing the build-up of bacterial plaque, thereby reducing the risk of inflammation and infection. As it contains HA, Perio Plus+ Focus also promotes effective tissue regeneration post-oral surgery.
Perio Plus+ Support
As an SLS (sodium lauryl sulphate) free solution, Perio Plus+ Support toothpaste is ideal for use in conjunction with any Perio Plus+ mouth rinse, protecting teeth and gums from oral disease.
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®.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
