Millions of Americans have been diagnosed with some form of periodontal disease, including its beginning stage of gingivitis. However, technology today enables our dentist to treat your gums in a completely non-invasive and comfortable way. Traditional gum treatments include scaling and root planing, which involves lifting the gums and removing harmful bacteria and plaque from beneath the surface. Today, however, Perio Protect® offers a new way to deep-clean your gums without any type of surgical incision.
While it is not a pleasant though, the truth is that our mouths are constantly breeding bacteria. When these bacteria are present in the pockets between our teeth and gum tissue, gum disease, recession, and other issues can result. The Perio Trays® from Perio Protect are custom-designed to eliminate these harmful bacteria.
To start, our dentist will take a mold of your teeth and use it to create a customized set of Perio Trays. Every day, you will fill the Perio Trays with prescribed medication and wear your appliances for just 10 to 15 minutes. Because the Perio Trays are custom-made to your dental pattern, the medication can get deep beneath the gum line and fight off disease-causing bacteria. By combining this treatment with regular brushing and flossing, and with routine checkups with our dentist, you can manage your periodontal disease and regain your oral health.
