We can now deliver medicine deep below the gumline with Perio Protect Trays
Perio Protect is the newest treatment in dentistry, for periodontal (gum) disease treatment. The Perio Protect Tray is a comprehensive treatment to reduce the bacteria growing under the gums. This is crucial because bacteria reproduce so quickly that it is difficult to control them between office visits. Research, dating back 10 years, shows that when professional cleanings are combined with Perio Protect Tray delivery of hydrogen peroxide gel, patients get better results than with cleanings alone.
The FDA approved Perio Protect medical device delivers doctor chosen medication directly to the source of your gum disease. The Perio Protect trays are worn as an adjunct to regular brushing and flossing and the treatments are modified as healing occurs.
This procedure has been clinically shown to be painless, easy, effective and reliable.
Worn for minutes each day, the trays fit right over your teeth and allow an effective concentration of medicine to be delivered to the infection.
The most important advantage of the Perio Protect approach is that it can treat gum disease in a comfortable way, minimizing the need for gum surgery and systemic antibiotics. It also can reduce bleeding, inflammation, increase collagen in gum tissue, and increase osteoclast which can stimulate bone repair. 80% of Americans have some form of gum disease and need customized treatments
