maintain regular hygiene appointments and meticulous home care. Professional cleanings go a long way to preserving your teeth and gums, but once patients leave the office they need to maintain their oral hygiene so it does not progress further. Many patients just need to get into a routine of brushing, flossing, and rinsing regularly. So, how can we make it more effective and efficient for the patient?

How to Improve Dental Hygiene?

Let’s face it, most patients do not like to floss. So what do we do to get patients to maintain their dental hygiene? One of the most effective and most popular products on the market today is the waterpik flosser. The waterpik flosser works by delivering a combination of water pressure and pulsation. This allows the waterpik to remove debris and bacteria lodged between the teeth and below the gum line. It is also able to massage and stimulate the gums to improve blood circulation and help promote healthy gums.

The waterpik has also been extensively studied in clinical trials and shown that it is clinically proven 50% more effective than traditional dental floss.

SO…what can make the waterpik even better? The answer is in a new rinse called Periogen. Periogen is a patented oral rinse that has been proven capable of dissolving tartar buildup between professional cleanings and dentist visits. Periogen works by exploiting a weakness (discovered by the research team at the Periogen Company) in the fundamental structure  of oral tartar, and the way it sticks to our teeth.

Tartar (or calculus as it is sometimes called) can be found above and below the gum line. Tartar above the gum line is referred to as supra gingival tartar and tartar below the gum line is referred to as sub gingival tartar. Dental Tartar is comprised almost entirely of Calcium Phosphate Salt. Calcium Phosphate is also the basic component of tooth material.

Calcium phosphate salt differs from calcium phosphate in its electron structure. The calcium phosphate salt has two less electrons than the calcium phosphate which makes it electrically unstable. This process of losing electrons happens in nature all the time. The best comparison is the buildup of lime deposits in water pipes and faucets. Microscopically, tartar is layer upon layer (can be in the tens of thousands layers) of  calcium salts and bacterial debris.

The tartar is a main cause of periodontal disease. Breakdown of gum and bone tissue is caused by toxins released by bacteria in plaque and tartar, and by the body. The toxins cause the body to react by starting the inflammatory process thereby destroying healthy gum tissue and supporting bone structures. Periodontal disease is progressive. Without proper treatment, periodontal disease will lead to tooth loss and infections throughout the mouth.

Periogen is used as an oral rinse 1-2 times per day between professional cleanings to reduce the level of tartar buildup and stain. This will in turn, make for an easier dental visit. It also maintains a healthier state in your mouth for your teeth and gums to heal. Periogen should in no way replace brushing and flossing, or visits to the dentist but just works as an accessory between professional dental cleanings to give you a more effective way to reduce tartar and fight periodontal disease .
