Gum disease is caused by bacteria that get up into your gums & cause an infection. Professional deep cleanings performed by your dentist can effectively treat the bacteria, but your home dental hygiene routine of brushing & flossing cannot reach this bacteria. As a result, the bacterial infection comes back between deep cleanings, sometimes even within hours of your deep cleaning at the dentist, & there is very little you can do at home to treat your gum disease.
The Perio Tray by Perio Protect is a tool you can use at home to fight back against bacteria between deep cleanings. Perio Protect gently applies anti-bacterial medication deep under the gums to fight infection. You only have to wear the tray for a few minutes each day for it to be effective. Because the tray comes from you dentist, it is comfortable, flexible & precisely custom-fit for your mouth.
You will still need to do the usual other things like brush, floss & use a rinse to help keep your mouth healthy, but with Perio Protect, you have a new fighting chance against gum disease infections. In addition to helping your gums, Perio Protect also gives some patients noticeably whiter teeth & fresher breath.
Perio Protect is an innovative treatment for patients who have been diagnosed with gingivitis or periodontitis (gum disease). If you have been diagnosed with gum disease, please talk to us about whether Perio Protect is right for you.
