After an oral surgical procedure, it is important to minimise the sequelae and repair damaged tissues as soon as possible, to thereby prevent the accumulation of bacteria, which could increase the risk of infection in the area treated. Similarly, appropriate protection of the wounds allows for faster healing and less inflammation, which favours post-surgical recovery.
Traditionally, antiseptics have been used after surgical interventions in the mouth to prevent superinfections. In this case, the gold standard for asepsis in the damaged area is chlorhexidine, which can be used in different concentrations, alone or together with another antiseptic—cetylpyridinium chloride—which further enhances its action.
As research has progressed, there has been an increase in use of hyaluronic acid, which helps to repair and regenerate the oral tissues affected and favours the healing of the damaged oral mucosa after surgery.
In addition to causing damage to the mucosa, an inflammatory process begins after surgery in the area affected, a situation that may cause the patient discomfort. For this reason, panthenol is included in the formulations, providing reduced gingival inflammation in the area affected.
Considering the situation after oral surgery, it is necessary to provide agents that will repair, regenerate, protect and reduce inflammation of the damaged area.
With this premise in mind, the DENTAID Research Center has developed the PERIO·AID® Bioadhesive Gel formulation, which includes the following three main active ingredients, which bestow it with the desired qualities: chlorhexidine, hyaluronic acid and panthenol.
Likewise, PERIO·AID® Bioadhesive Gel offers a prolonged bioadhesive effect, remaining on the damaged tissue for up to 3½ hours. This feature is very important in order to achieve maximum effectiveness of the agents on the affected area. Because the most important thing about post-surgery product formulations is that they must ensure the desired results materialize.
Possesses bactericidal properties in high concentrations and is bacteriostatic in low ones.
Its main action is to prevent the development of oral biofilm, which can cause infection in the area affected and delay proper healing.
A naturally present component in the tissues of the oral mucosa.
Favours the multiplication of fibroblasts and epithelial cells.
Forms a protective layer.
Helps regenerate damaged tissues and speeds healing.
Diminishes gum inflammation in the affected area.
