SINGAPORE: Curaprox’s Perio plus regenerate belongs to a new generation of chlorhexidine-based mouthwashes that employ a unique blend of additives. It supports tissue regeneration, but also prevents bacterial infection, making it ideal for use after surgery and for relieving treatment-related dry mouth. Here are three ways Perio plus regenerate protects your patients’ health.

Strong effect but fewer side effects

Two key components of Perio plus regenerate are chlorhexidine and Citrox. Chlorhexidine digluconate (0.09%) has been the gold standard of oral antiseptics for decades. Citrox is a novel organic antibacterial made from bioflavonoids and is sourced from bitter oranges. It is effective against bacteria, viruses and fungi.

Studies have shown that the combination of Citrox and chlorhexidine is more effective than using chlorhexidine alone. Citrox in Perio plus regenerate is combined with polylysine amino acids to create the Citrox/P formula, which offers a long-lasting antibacterial effect. Thanks to this unique blend of ingredients, it is possible to reduce the amount of chlorhexidine used and consequently its side effects.

An extra layer of protection

Hyaluronic acid is an important part of the Perio plus regenerate formula. Thanks to its water-binding properties, it humidifies the oral mucosa, supporting regrowth of cells. It also protects the regenerating mucosa by creating a protective biopolymer film over it. This acts against dry mouth, reduces the risk of infection by viruses and bacteria, and supports the formation of new mucosal cells.

Caries prevention

Xylitol not only contributes to Perio plus regenerate’s pleasant taste without spiking blood sugar and insulin, but also helps keep the teeth healthy and helps prevent caries. Oral bacteria such as Streptococcus mutans cannot metabolise xylitol, resulting in the bacteria dying off.

Using Perio plus regenerate

The patient should rinse with 10 ml of Perio plus regenerate undiluted for 60 seconds, morning and night, for up to one month. Patients must be warned that Perio plus regenerate is for oral application only and must not be swallowed. It should also be kept out of reach of children.
