We’ll Help You Treat or Prevent Gum Disease
Gum Disease Treatment with Perio Protect
Perio Protect is a minimally invasive approach to help reduce the bacteria causing gum disease. More than 80% of American adults have some form of gum disease which causes bad breath, sore bleeding gums and tooth loss. For most patients, brushing and flossing alone cannot control the bacteria causing the disease. Bacteria can spread from the mouth to other parts of the body and have been linked to systemic diseases such as diabetes and cardiovascular disease.
The goal of the Perio Protect Method is to maintain healthy gum tissue for long term health and to avoid periodontal surgery whenever possible.
Perio Trays from Perio Protect
Dentists and hygienists can mechanically remove the bacterial biofilm in plaque and calculus but the biofilm is capable of regrowth in as little as 3 days. Keeping the bacteria under control between office visits is very important. Perio Protect Trays are soft flexible trays customized with a special seal to be worn comfortably over teeth and gums. They deliver low dosage medication (1.7% hydrogen peroxide) to kill the bacterial growth hiding below the gumline. A common side effect is whiter teeth from the 1.7% hydrogen peroxide.
