Bright Teeth Gel
The PerioPack + contains Chlorofluor Gel (30 mL), Bright Teeth Gel (30 mL), 2 Thermosplints for a custom mouth tray, along with Professional and Consumer information. Chlorofluor combines chlorhexidine with fluoride to improve gum health and caries resistance. Alternating applications of Bright Teeth Gel (carbamide peroxide) and Chlorofluor Gel in a mouth tray reduces gum irritation, improves fluoride uptake and prevents cervical staining from forming as well as whitening the teeth.
1) Bright Teeth Gel: Carbamide Peroxide 10% w/v
2) Chlorofluor Gel: Chlorhexidine Gluconate 0.2 % w/v, Sodium Fluoride 0.003% w/v
Chlorhexidine helps control plaque and eases localised gum irritations. Small amounts of fluoride ions present are taken up by tooth structure and help to increase resistance to dental caries improves the binding of chlorhexidine onto tooth surfaces. Carbamide Peroxide 10% gel is a plaque inhibitor that is particularly effective against gram -ve bacteria and has a demonstrated ability to whiten tooth structure with varying degrees of effectiveness. By alternating daily applications of Chlorhexidine and Carbamide Peroxide bacterial plaque is inhibited, particularly gram –ve. The Carbamide Peroxide inhibits Chlorhexidine staining and the Fluoride in the Chlorofluor reduces cervical sensitivity caused by the Carbamide Peroxide.
To assist with the control of chronic gum irritation, peri implantitis and dental caries. The product may be used to reconstitute oral plaque prior to extensive dental treatment and for whitening teeth for patients who have exhibit cervical sensitivity to Carbamide Peroxide.
Lichen Planus may be exacerbated by Carbamide Peroxide Gel and treatment is contraindicated for these patients. Carbamide Peroxide will remove the smear layer from dentine but has no reported deleterious effects on tooth structure. Children under 6 years of age and those unable to expectorate the gels.
Isolated cases of uneven bleaching or banding may occur, and patients must be advised of this rare possibility. Sore throats from swallowing gel that has leached out from poorly fitting trays has been reported. As with most medication, use during pregnancy is not advised.
The trays should not be worn during eating, teeth cleaning, playing contact sport or swimming and should be stored in the container provided whilst out of the mouth.
Avoid contact with eyes.
The use of chlorhexidine alone may cause a harmless superficial staining on teeth where established plaque build-up is present. This will disappear if use of product is stopped.
Involves the recording of pocket depths, mobility, gum colour and taking an alginate impression of both arches. Once a plaster model has been fabricated from the impression, the soft thermoplastic blanks provided may be used to construct the trays. This should be done using a commercially available apparatus with a high temperature element and vacuum motor. A close-fitting tray that does not extend beyond the cervical margins is essential for a successful result. The individuals Patient Pack is then prepared for handover.
Involves the fitting and checking of the thermoplastic trays. The patient should also be instructed on precautions and indications on use of the PerioPack system.
The patient should be recalled in a month to review progress, observe and record changes to the gum tissue. Continue to recall patient as often as required until desired the outcome is achieved. The Perio Pack system may be used as an adjunct to standard chronic gum irritation for extended periods.
A comprehensive Consumer Information Sheet is provided in each Perio Pack Kit.
