Perio Protect helps control the cyclical and, to some extent, unpredictable nature of periodontitis. It helps to decrease the risk for further gum tissue damage over a period of years. In fact, the Perio Protect Tray was created to help patients fight periodontal diseases in the most minimally invasive way possible and with the least amount of disruption to their quality of life.
The special internal seals in the Perio Protect tray make it possible to place medication directly into the pockets between teeth and gum tissue. Your dentist or hygienist will measure your mouth and our lab will create a customized internal seal for each Perio Tray.
The specially-designed Perio Protect tray works because the pressure created by the seal forces the medication into pockets under the gum line, reaching deeper than any other non-invasive gum disease treatment is able to.
Used daily, Perio Protect fights bacterial infections and allows your gums to heal.
Perio Protect – A Minimally-Invasive Gum Disease Treatment That Works
Perio Protect is a great option for patients who suffer from periodontal issues as a way to treat the disease without resorting to more invasive treatment options.
Perio Protect is a more comfortable, effective, and less invasive option that delivers medication deep below the gums.
It is even very easy to use for at-home care. Patients are able to simply add medication and wear the tray — no special training or know-how required.
Gum Disease Treatment Options
Chronic gum disease, aggressive periodontitis, chronic periodontitis and necrotizing periodontal disease are the most common forms of gum disease. A dentist or periodontist may recommend certain procedures after your diagnosis and will put together a treatment plan.
Most hygienists will begin treatment with scaling and root planing, or nonsurgical periodontal therapy. Adjunct therapy, such as antimicrobial medicines, may follow.
This is where Perio Protect comes in. The goal is to treat your gum disease at home with custom-made trays and medicine. Gum disease will be kept at bay, with only careful monitoring and hygiene cleanings needed after that point.
When gum disease is not controlled, LANAP therapy might be needed.
