Periochip is an innovative treatment for patients with advanced gum disease (periodontal disease). At Sparkle Dental Boutique we make sure that our clients have access to the latest treatments, which is why we are so delighted to offer this new treatment.
It is a small biodegradable chip designed to reduce the size of periodontal pockets, which are gaps that form between the teeth and gums as a result of severe gum disease. The chip contains 2.5mg of Chlorhexidine Gluconate and is aimed at patients who have pockets that measure 5mm or more. The chip is used in conjunction with scale and root planing treatments.
Studies and trials have confirmed this to be an extremely effective treatment for patients who have advanced periodontal disease. Research indicates that the chip, when used along with scaling and root planing, can reduce the size of periodontal pockets significantly.
Periochip works by combating bacteria for between 7 and 10 days. Studies show that the chip is effective in fighting a host of different microbes, meaning it can fight bacteria left in the pockets after scaling and root planing.
The chip is inserted during what is a simple and quick procedure. Your Sparkle Dental Boutique hygienist or dentist will fit the chip under the gums following scaling and root planing. The chip dissolves independently, but patients are advised to avoid flossing for ten days as the action can move the chip out of position.
The procedure to fit the chip is usually quick and painless. Some patients may experience slight sensitivity for a short period of time, but this should only be mild. If you are very nervous about having dental treatment we can apply topical anaesthetic to the gums before the chip is fitted. Please talk to our dental team about this option at Sparkle Dental Boutique near Ealing.
Studies show that Periochip is an effective and safe treatment. The results vary from person to person, but there is a significant difference in the depth of the pockets in patients who have been treated with Periochip, alongside scaling and root planing, and those who have just had scaling and root planing treatment.
