Instructions for Using Periogen®

Congratulations on getting started with Periogen® Complete Oral Rinse, your path to oral health! You have chosen a product that is clinically proven to prevent and reduce dental tartar buildup. There are several methods to apply Periogen, and all are simple. It is important that you choose the method that is easiest for you to follow on a daily basis. Some users prefer the swishing method. You can also brush with Periogen; or apply it through an oral irrigator.

For all methods described here, brush with your regular toothpaste first, and then apply Periogen.

Swishing Method

In a cup, mix 1/2 scoop (in bottle) Periogen in 1/2 cup (118 ml) water. Swish portion of mixture in mouth for 20 seconds, then spit. Repeat until solution is gone. 

Brushing Method

Prepare Periogen solution as you would for Swishing Method above. Dip your toothbrush into the solution and brush all quadrants including the gum-tooth margin. If you’d like, swish with the remaining solution.

Oral Irrigator Method

Oral irrigators, also called water flossers, have reservoirs that typically hold about 2 cups (473 ml) of liquid. In the reservoir, mix 1 scoop of Periogen per 1 cup (236 ml) water. Irrigate all quadrants of your mouth. Run the tip along the margin between each of your teeth and the gum. Pay special attention to the back sides of the rear molars as these areas can be easily missed.
