Why Choose Perio Protect?

Periodontal disease is a dental problem that affects as many as 47 percent of adult Americans according to statistics published by the CDC. It's so prevalent because a lot of Americans have poor dental hygiene habits—they allow plaque and calculus to develop around the gumline that eventually starts to compromise the teeth and gums. Smoking and a sugar-filled diet also contribute to periodontal disease. If you’re concerned about gum disease, learn more about a treatment called Perio Protect.

What Is Perio Protect?
Since the main culprit behind gingivitis and periodontal disease is bad bacteria, a solution that can effectively remove and eliminates that bacteria is ideal. Perio Protect is a set of trays that's been treated with a medication that neutralizes bacteria as a part of a complete periodontal therapy. The tray creates a seal that helps treat the deeper areas of the pockets that a brush can’t reach. Dental floss may be able to reach these pocketed areas, but after bacteria has hardened into tartar or calculus, floss isn't as effective.

How Does it Work?
Your dentist will first diagnose your case as periodontitis using X-rays and a dental exam. Clear signs of gum disease include bleeding gums, pockets around the teeth and loose or highly sensitive teeth. If your case is ideal for Perio Protect, a mold will be taken of the shape of your teeth so that custom trays can be designed. You will wear the trays for about 10 to 15 minutes each day in addition to normal brushing and flossing. 

A Preferred Periodontal Treatment
Perio Protect is considered an alternative to procedures like scaling and root planing. Patients prefer this treatment because it’s non-invasive and doesn’t require surgery or sedation. However, in advanced cases, your dentist may recommend additional therapies to help get your teeth and gums strong again, like bone grafting or crown lengthening surgery.

Get Immediate Treatment for Periodontitis
The effects of periodontal disease usually worsen over time if they aren't treated promptly, so it's important to take steps to reverse them as quickly as possible.
