What is PerioProtect?
PerioProtect is a patented series of clear plastic trays that are worn for just minutes each day. The trays will be filled with prescription medication that helps to treat gum disease deep below the surface. This helps to stop the spread of bacteria and infection for at-home periodontal treatment. The trays are easy to wear and are custom made for your mouth so that they are incredibly comfortable.
Why do you need PerioProtect?
You may need PerioProtect because you have mild to advanced periodontal disease. The trays enable you to treat your periodontal disease in the comfort of your home. The patented medication is prescription strength, allowing you to get the bacteria-fighting gel that you need in a convenient and easy-to-use application. PerioProtect is ideal for most patients who have some degree of gingivitis or gum disease.
What makes you a good candidate for PerioProtect?
You are a good candidate for PerioProtect if you currently have periodontal disease and are looking for a way to treat the condition at home in between appointments. The trays are easy to wear and need to be worn for just minutes a day. They are custom created for you so that they offer optimal comfort. The patented medication delivers bacteria-fighting treatment deep below the gum’s surface.
What happens during the procedure for PerioProtect?
First, you will come in for a consultation on whether or not PerioProtect is right for you. Most patients who want PerioProtect are able to get the trays for themselves. You will have impressions made of your teeth that are then sent off to a lab. You will be instructed on how to use PerioProtect at home and be given the medication to use with the trays. It is important that you use PerioProtect for several minutes a day in order for them to deliver the medication that is necessary to fight the disease. You may need to have new trays made after several months and will need to continue treatment for as long as deemed necessary.
