Clean & Seal ® – treatment concept against peri-implant and periodontal infections
Why use Clean & Seal against peri-implant and periodontal infections?
The Clean & Seal concept, which was developed based on scientific data [1, 2], provides guidance and support for the interception of peri-implant and periodontal diseases. It allows clinicians to save the tooth or implants and prevent the further development of the peri-implant or periodontal disease, which helps to further prevent larger procedures required to rebuild tissue.
Periodontitis, peri-implant mucositis, and peri-implantitis are bacterial inflammations with similar symptoms. The underlying cause of all three indications, which progress in a similar way, is bacterial plaque forming a biofilm, rich in pathogenic bacteria.
The softening of the biofilm and effective elimination of the bacteria is the key prerequisite for successful treatment of these conditions .
With regard to peri-implant diseases, they are divided into two subgroups: peri-implant mucositis [1-3], which is characterized by soft tissue inflammation without bone loss, and peri-implantitis, which is characterized by progressive loss of the supporting bone . If left untreated, in the worst-case, peri-implantitis can result in the loss of the affected implant. This problem is relatively new to clinicians and dissatisfying for patients. It is of great importance to treat peri-implant disease at an early stage, with infection control and extensive debridement being crucial for positive treatment outcomes [1, 2]. The likelihood of success is further increased by the supportive application of sealing agents for protection and regenerative support and by regular follow-up to monitor and control inflammation .
The Clean & Seal two-step process for periodontal and peri-implant infections
Cleaning effect with Perisolv:
- Softening of the extracellular matrix of the biofilm
- Enhancing bacterial removal by mechanical debridement
- Elimination of the biofilm
Sealing effect with Hyadent BG:
- Attracts blood and stabilizes coagulum to support tissue regeneration
- Bacteriostatic effect to provide protection to cleaned site
- Growth factors attracted by hyaluronic acid
- Coordinates inflammation and accelerates angiogenesis
The Clean & Seal protocol ?
Clean & Seal is a treatment protocol to tackle mucositis by erasing the biofilm with Perisolv and securing sustainable healing of the soft tissues with Hyadent BG.
