Periopack Oral health Kit
The Perio Pack Mini contains Chlorofluor Gel (30 mL) and Bright Teeth Gel (30 mL), along with Professional and Consumer information. Chlorofluor combines chlorhexidine with fluoride to improve gingival health and caries resistance.
Brushing alternately with these products will reduce gingival inflammation, improve fluoride uptake and prevent cervical staining from forming as well as bleaching the teeth.
The product may be used to reconstitute oral plaque prior to extensive dental treatment and for bleaching teeth for patients who have exhibit cervical sensitivity to Carbamide Peroxide.
Chlorhexidine helps control plaque and eases localised gingival and oral infections. 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 bleach 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.
Directions and Precautions
A comprehensive Consumer Information Sheet is provided in each Perio Pack Kit.
Using a toothbrush, alternate applications of Bright Teeth Gel (carbamide peroxide) and Chlorofluor Gel morning and night.
Isolated cases of uneven bleaching or banding may occur and patients must be advised of this rare possibility. Sore throats from swallowing gel leaching out from poorly fitting trays have been reported. As with most medication, use during pregnancy is not advised. The trays should not be worn during eating, teeth cleaning, playing a 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 as a mouthwash may cause a harmless superficial staining on teeth.
Store below 30 degrees C
