|A canker sore, also known as an aphthous ulcer,
is a sore of the gum, usually triggered by trauma to the mouth. Following minor injuries, the mucus membrane, or surface of the gum, is not able to ward off attacks by anaerobic bacteria, which begin to feed and multiply in the wound.
Left untreated, these painful sores can last for over a month.
Periogen does not kill bacteria, but disrupts anaerobic bacteria colonies by inhibiting “quorum sensing” so anaerobic bacteria do not mount flesh-eating attacks.
Periogen also dissolves the tartar which houses the destructive bacterium. Regular, daily Periogen use can prevent mouth wounds from becoming canker sores, and make existing canker sores short-lived.
