Hydrogen Peroxide The active ingredient in Perio Gel is hydrogen peroxide. It occurs naturally in the body and is also a powerful antimicrobial. Hydrogen peroxide penetrates the protective slime layer covering bacterial communities, and it can break down the cell walls of bacteria causing infections and oral wounds associated with gum diseases like gingivitis and periodontitis. These infections and oral wounds are hard to see because they are hidden below the gum tissue. Getting medication under the gums and keeping it there long enough to work can be a challenge. Research shows that a customized prescription Perio Tray can deliver and maintain Perio Gel below the gum tissue long enough for the hydrogen peroxide to do its work. The Perio Tray is specifically designed to place medication in the periodontal pocket, the space between tooth and gum tissues that harbors infections. The Perio Tray is truly unique, fabricated with a seal system customized for each tooth according to patient conditions. The seal prevents leakage and directs the medication in the pocket. Tooth Whitening A common side effect of Perio Gel usage in prescription trays is gradual tooth whitening. Patients who have anterior restorations (for example crowns in front teeth) should talk with their doctors/dentists. The 1.7% concentration of hydrogen peroxide in Perio Gel is much lower than professional whitening products, so whitening effects will not be immediately noticed, but with consistent usage gives you a whiter, brighter smile.
