PERISOLV – BIOFILM ERASER
Why use a biofilm eraser in periodontal and peri-implant treatment?
Elimination of the biofilm is key for the treatment success of periodontitis, peri-implant muscositis and peri-implantitis.
- Elimination of the biofilm 
- Improvement of peri-implant situations such as mucositis 
- Reduction of pocket depth [3,4]
Periodontitis, peri-implant mucositis, and peri-implantitis are bacterial inflammations with similar symptoms. The underlying cause behind 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 the successful treatment of these conditions.
How does the PERISOLV biofilm eraser work ?
PeriSolv, as a biofilm eraser, is a debridement gel used in addition to mechanical debridement. When hypochlorite sodium is activated with amino acids and applied on the biofilm, even in locations hard to reach, the solution alters the biofilm’s matrix. It enhances bacterial removal by mechanical debridement  and facilitates its removal.
This biofilm eraser is effective in treating root surfaces and allows for PDL cell survival, attachment, and spreading onto all root surfaces .
