Warning from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention

Centers for Disease Control and Prevention



The Perio Protect Method® and Antibiotic StewardshipThe CDC warns that antibiotic resistance is “public health’s ticking time bomb.” If antibiotics are losing their effectiveness due to rising bacterial resistance, what should a dental team do? Please consider Perio Tray delivery of a broad spectrum antimicrobial with 1.7% hydrogen peroxide. Peroxide is an effective oral debriding agent and oral wound cleanser that helps patients fight periodontal disease when it is delivered into periodontal pockets with the prescription Perio Tray.
