1. Hello,

    I’m trying to find a 3rd party source about the credibility of Periogen. Are you that person or is this written by the Periogen company?



    1. I’m that person. Worked for me. What I wanted to do but didn’t was get a scope to look below my gums before and after my self treatment with Periogen, but my pocket depths did change and a new dentist who measured said I definitely did NOT need a deep cleaning after treatment. Now, because the maker told me periogen kills strep mutans, the bacteria that turns sugar into acid which breaks minerals out of your teeth, I still use it with my waterpic any time I start to feel the sensitivty that indicates to me that my teeth are getting too demineralized.

  2. How did you manage to use a product from a company who’s own ‘address’ is for lease? I find this very intriguing


    1. Not sure what you mean.

      I ordered from the global tonic web site (link above). Or check here: http://periogen.com/

      Why would a company having a “for lease” address (web or physical) make it difficult to manage using a product from that company? :-/


  3. It sounds reasonable and promising, but I’m curious to know whether Periogen also weakens or erodes tooth enamel or material, and if not, why not, and what evidence there is of these things.


  4. Pls I’m seriously in need of periogen and i cant find it here in Nigeria. Can u send some bottles 4 me, but it wil be a trial bottles for free


  5. Pls I had one deep clean and it is the worst pain ever and have a next appointment which I dnt want to go to for the right side of mouth now I am in pain and have high sensitivity on the right side of mouth how long does it take for perigon to work? Pls help and where in uk I can buy it from?


  6. how did you use the CoQ10? Did you just swallow the capsule? Open it and rub on teeth? What strength did you use?


  7. My gums never bleed when I brush. However I do have bad tarter build up on my back two teeth on top in the back on each side. Will this periogen break up that tarter? And how long til it braks up? And will the tarter totLly disappear and the teeth be smoothe once the tarters gone?


  8. I find it hilarious that so many people on here act like they are so knowledgable on dental hygiene. 1st off I am a dental hygienist so to the person who wrote this post you clearly do not know the difference between tarter and plaque two different things. Plaque is actually the etiology to periodontal disease not tarter/calculus. Plaque is the soft deposits ( bacteria/ dead cells) that build up on our teeth, and begins to build back up w/ in minutes of brushing your teeth & will fully recolonized w/in 8-12 hours after brushing. Plaque is the reason we brush & floss. The reason lack of good oral hygiene can lead to periodontal disease is because plaque (bacteria) has been consistently sitting on the teeth, along the gum line & continues to build up until brushed/flossed off. When your oral hygiene is lacking and your not removing this bacteria on regular intervals (ADA recommends brushing 2x daily, flossing once daily) your body in turn is trying to fight off the bacteria, producing a constant immune response due of plaque irritating the tissues/gums (1st signs of an infection: color change in tissue usually redness, inflammation/swelling, bleeding, pain/soreness may/may not be present), this immune response is actually causing the damage if it’s chronic. The chronic immune response will cause the collagen fibers of the gum tissue to eventually break down creating a “pocket” or deep measurements around your teeth, & if not managed will eventually cause the loss of supporting bone & tissue around the teeth. Once you have a true perio pocket the deeper the measurement the harder it becomes for you to clean the plaque off because it will get down in the pockets where toothbrushes/floss can not reach that far, and continuing the process of periodontal disease.
    Tarter/ calculus is actually not the etiology of perio disease but is considered a contributing factor/ risk factor. Tarter is actually plaque that has been mineralized/hardened by the calcium in our salvia over time, making it a hard deposit that can be removed w/ a TB, floss, mouthwash, airflosser or waterpik. Tarter has to be removed by a professional.
    The reason tarter is a contributing factor is because these hard deposits once on your teeth will only allow plaque to adhere to it & your teeth more easily since tarter is rough, it just allows more rough surfaces for plaque to build up on compared to a smooth surface, which makes it harder for plaque to build up when surfaces are smooth.


    1. I meant that to read that tarter CANT be removed w/ a TB, floss, mouthwash, waterpik or airflosser. Also if you want to know more about a products effectiveness, looking for the ADA stamp of approval is one good indicator. Also going to the ADA website and searching for articles and studies on a product will help you determine a products effectiveness & even a better insight on of the specific use of a product


      1. actually shannon being a dentil hygenist trained by the ada is a sure way of us knowing you know virtually nothing about tooth decay. after all you all recommend products that ensure decay. Glycerin containing toothpaste makes sure we keep coming back to keep the dental mafia afloat. thanks but no thanks. i never get my teeth cleaned, i don’t use dental products, and when i partially break a tooth it grows back ( i mean literally in half this isn’t just remineralization), something you all claim is impossible. I have no cavities or pain and i attribute all of that to avoiding you folks. my teeth aren’t the greatest cosmetically but thats really all modern dentistry is good for. so if you want to have pearly whites today and no teeth tomorrow follow shannons advice.


    2. Hi Shannon,

      Thanks for the info, there is always more to know.

      I do know the difference between tartar and plaque and I meant what I said. Only plaque was found. There was not tartar on the follow up visit after using Periogen.

      As a dental hygienist you might not realize that those in molecular biology and genetics labs can have experience with more plaque than would ever be seen in a dental office since we may grow bacteria on purpose for research.

      Plaque (biofilm) is not just bacteria and dead cells, it is an organized sticky extracellular matrix of proteins, lipids and long chain polysaccharides that contains water channels and voids, allowing a flow of nutrients, oxygen and waste products as well as inter-species communication between bacteria. The water channels and holes remain as plaque hardens and this allows Periogen to reach and dissolve the substrate, or rather it melts the “glue” that binds the fossilized dead bacteria.

      In short, in my view, tartar can be safely removed chemically without paying a dental professional, despite what the ADA might insist we believe.

      I may be “acting” like I know something about dental hygiene, but in that case I’m a pretty good actor because I went from having ten cavities at one time to not having one single cavity in the following ten years, as confirmed by several competent ADA approved dentists.

      However, since most people don’t have the willpower to give up sugar and since Novamin is no longer available to average American, I predict no change in the need for dentists who make a living drilling, filling and billing.

      Finally, I do have a question for you. What would be an example of periodontal disease with zero tartar?


    3. Ok I am not a professional but I think it should beTARTAR and not TARTER. Since Shannon has used it 7 times it can’t be a typo and since Shannon is a professional it then must be Tarter. Who is right? I don’t mind to be wrong, after all I am not a professional, just a very curious person.


  9. Bravo, Xeno! Thanks to my occasional use of Periogen, my dental office no longer wants to “dig” in my mouth. The last time I went to the dentist (about two weeks ago), I was told that my gums look good and that I take good care of my teeth. Prior to Periogen, I was having some problems with my gums. I am a woman in my fifties and do not want to have heart disease due to bacterial buildup in my mouth being carried via my blood stream to my heart and other organs. Plus I really would like to keep my teeth and hate a “dirty” mouth. I found Periogen by accident and am glad that I did.


  10. I had an old silver filling in a molar I bit down on a hard cookie and one side of the molar broke. I was going to have an extraction. He did a huge digital scan and bite wing. Over the yrars, I am 71 years old, I did have some extractions years ago. He told me he was sending my xrays to a periodontist before he did any work on my tooth. One tooth . No gum bleeding or swelling. No pain. One pocket 5 cm. I cannot afford this.

  11. Wow!
    I’ve been craving to find the solution to the plaque and tarter problems with the teeth.
    Am glad periogen sounds helpful. Looking forward to trying it hoping it will work.
    Where can I get periogen in Zambia?
    Or rather where can I purchase it from on via the internet?
    I need it…somebody help…!


  12. I normally purchase periogen from drugstore.com or amazon. It’s a WONDERFUL product both my husband and I use and have seen results! We also oil pull with a coconut oil/CoQ10 mixture too. It’s amazing!


  13. This could save people big bucks – I have a niece who is a dentist, and she is very conservative. Having had the expensive ‘teeth scraping’ before (painful), this might have been an alternative.
    Thanks for following my blog – much appreciated!


  14. Interesting. I need the know if it is safe for caps and won’t damage ceramic teeth. How to get under the guns to dissolve the tarter? I am told all my teeth have pockets. Some are ok some are deeper. I am using all that was recommended, electric tooth brush, electric water floss, manual gloss… never stops.
