Can’t I just use my retainers or aligners instead of these trays?
No. Perio Protect works by sealing close to the gums to prevent medication from seeping into the mouth. 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 can.
How long do I have to wear the trays?
Duration and frequency will be determined based on your doctor’s recommendations, but most patients begin treatment with 2-3 Perio Tray applications per day, each 10-15 minutes.
Can I use these trays to whiten my teeth?
No. It is not recommended that you use any gel, oil, paste, or substance in the trays that was not explicitly prescribed or recommended by your doctor or hygienist as this may ruin the seal.
Will my insurance cover the cost of these trays?
As each insurance is different, we won’t know your benefits until we verify your insurance. However, our insurance specialist will always work to maximize your insurance allowance and will provide all necessary information to you should you have to work with your insurance plan directly.
The trays should last anywhere from 5-10 years, so it’s a worthy investment in your smile.
