What is Perio Protect?
How Does Perio Protect Work?
The Perio Tray by Perio Protect
Gum disease is caused by a bacterial infection that is hidden below your gums, between teeth, and inside periodontal pockets. More than half of all Americans have gum disease in some form, and it is the leading cause of adult tooth loss.
Regular professional dental cleanings can effectively treat the bacteria, but when you return home the cycle often continues. Bacterial cells can grow back within just a few hours after a cleaning. Daily use of toothbrush, rinse and floss can help, but they aren’t able to reach deep enough to fully combat the infection at home.
Perio Protect provides a simple, effective, and non-invasive way to treat gum disease between dental visits – right in the comfort of your own home. The Perio Tray by Perio Protect gently applies medication deep under the gums to fight the infections. You use it for just minutes each day. The Tray is comfortable, flexible, and custom-fit precisely for your mouth.
With Perio Tray therapy, you have a new chance against the infections. In additional to healthier gums, patients commonly report whiter teeth and fresher breath. If you’ve been told that you have gum disease (gingivitis or periodontitis), ask our team if Perio Trays are right for you.
