If you have gum disease, find out how Perio Protect might help you.perio protect, gum disease

Did our Springfield, MO, cosmetic dentist Dr. Teresa Faye Morris just recently diagnose you with gum disease? If so, you may be feeling a bit confused or even stressed about your diagnosis, but you’ll be happy to hear that gum disease can be managed with the proper treatment. Find out more about Perio Protect and how it might be able to help you.

What is Perio Protect?

While there are a few ways to manage your gum disease symptoms and to get your gums looking healthier again, one simple, painless and non-surgical option for treating your condition is with these custom trays that deliver medication into the infected pockets between your teeth and gums to kill the bacteria and shrink the pockets. This may be a great option for someone with only minor periodontitis, but it can also be offered to those with more advanced forms of gum disease to prevent tooth loss.

How does Perio Protect work?

These prescription trays are custom-made by our Springfield, MO, dentist to fit perfectly over your teeth. These trays help administer medication below the gums to fight off the bacteria responsible for gum disease.

Even if you have revamped your oral care routine and you are brushing and flossing more regularly (which is absolutely wonderful!), these daily activities may keep teeth clean but they won’t be able to treat the infection that lies underneath the gums. Only this medical device will be able to provide the ample treatment that your gums need to heal.

What makes this treatment so easy is that it can be done from the comfort of your own home. Depending on the severity of your gum disease, this treatment may be all that’s needed or it may be used in conjunction with scaling and root planing (a standard procedure for treating gum disease that can be performed right here in our office).

Call our Springfield, MO, dental office to schedule your next routine cleaning. You should be getting preventive dental care every six months, and this is the best way to protect yourself against gum disease and other issues.
