User reviews provided by Advanced Biotech:
A lead periodontist's opinion: ''Minimally ivasive, maximizing tissue health, PPAB has been found to increase patient acceptance for the second phase of deeply Invasive treatment, if and when necessary.'‘
Another periodontist says, "PPAB has become a must use in my clinical pratice in a number of situations. I routinely use it as an adjunct to scaling and root planning in
all cases exhibiting exudation. I also use PPAB as a pre-surgical aid to transiently control the inflammation, thereby allowing me to handle the tissues very easily during surgery.“

SUSTAINED RELEASE AND EFFECTIVITY OF PPAB:
Studies have shown that PPAB releases tetracycline consistently from day one over a period of 10 to 14 days with the concentrations peaking by the 4th to 5th day
As a synergistic effect, the collagen fibrils also bio-degrade and release enzymes which promote the repair of the periodontal lesion.
PPAB has been tried out by periodontists and they have all reported excellent clinical success with fast clinical resolution. Inflammation is controlled excellently and clinical parameters like bleeding, exudation etc. reduce tremendously in two applications.
