Perio Protect is a comprehensive approach to gum disease treatment. The approach combines dental cleanings with the comfortable Perio Tray® delivery of medication that patients use at home between office visits. The Perio Tray is similar to a mouth-guard, but it has a special sealing system to deliver medication below the gums. You put medication in the tray and wear it for 15 minutes a day. The medication fights the infections. It’s that easy.
How does it work?
The special internal seals in the Perio Tray makes it possible to place medication directly into the pockets between teeth and gum tissue. Using the periodontal measurements your hygienist records and impressions of your teeth, a lab will design the trays specific to you.
Periodontal disease is a serious condition. Not only is it the number one cause of tooth loss, but research has also linked oral bacteria infections to type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular diseases, Alzheimer’s disease, and other chronic health conditions. Treatment of periodontal disease can include scaling, laser therapy, surgery, and other extensive procedures. Perio Protect trays are a minimally invasive way to treat periodontal disease. Biofilm (bacteria) that has built up deep under the gum tissue is difficult to remove at home, even with daily brushing and flossing.
The medication gel that is dispensed into the tray goes under the gum tissue and kills bacteria which gives your body a chance to heal. Perio Protect can be a beneficial treatment option for you to use at home between office visits to reduce the bacterial load in your mouth, leaving you with healthier gums, fresher breath, whiter teeth, and a happier smile.
