Peridontal (Gum) Disease Treatment
Perio Protect ® is a comprehensive treatment approach that combines professional cleanings with a special, comfortable tray delivery of medication that you use at home between office visits. The Perio Tray ® by Perio Protect 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 a few minutes a day. It is that easy.
Gum disease is the most common cause of bad breath, bleeding gums, receding gums, loss of bone supporting the teeth and eventually the loss of teeth.
Scientific studies connecting your oral health and your overall health have been making headlines in recent years. The research links gum disease to type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular disease, inflammation, strokes, respiratory diseases, and complications in pregnancy.
Millions of Americans have these symptoms, but, because the signs are easy to ignore, many are not getting the treatment they need. Early treatment is crucial so I am happy to announce that my office offers the Perio Protect Method.
This technique is designed to be used with brushing and flossing and can be combined with other treatments like professional deep cleanings when necessary. The purpose of the Perio Protect Method is to decrease, whenever possible, the need for invasive surgical procedures.
Patients who follow the Method describe their experience as comfortable and report positive side effects of fresher breath and whiter teeth.
