Everyday flossing and toothbrushing cannot reach into periodontal pockets like the Perio Protect Method, which is the only bacteria-fighting medicine delivery system of its kind with FDA approval.
Using a patented tray and sealing system, the Perio Protect Method reaches into periodontal pockets, the spaces surrounding teeth under the gumline where bacteria thrive. The solution will also whiten teeth and freshen breath.
The at-home treatment only takes a few minutes a day to apply and can vastly improve oral health.
Your dentist will create a customized treatment plan to follow at home. First, you must be fitted with the Perio Protect Method trays, into which you’ll later place a small amount of the prescription medicine. Then, you will only need to wear the medicated trays for a few minutes for full effect.
The preventive method reduces the chance of infection and other gum disease complications. Bleeding gums, sensitive teeth, bad breath, swollen or tender gums, widening spaces between teeth and loose teeth are some symptoms associated with gum disease.
Addressing the early signs of gum disease is crucial to both oral and overall health. Poor gum health is linked to other more serious ailments, such as cardiovascular disease, Type 2 diabetes and other chronic conditions.
Alternatives to Perio Protect include deep cleaning or surgery if there’s advanced gum disease.
“Deep Cleaning” or Periodontal Therapy involves removing bacteria from the roots of the teeth and smoothing them, so bacteria does not reaccumulate. In severe cases, gum surgery involves removal of damaged gum tissue and smoothing the bone that surrounds the teeth, which helps correct the damage that was caused by gum disease.
Because gum disease has a tendency to come back, it is common for patients to sometimes need additional therapy in the future. As with most procedures, there can be some risks or side effects of these treatments.
Other options to fight gum disease include antibiotics, which often yield immediate results, but with no long-term solution.
Perio Protect is different. As part of a comprehensive gum disease treatment, Perio Protect is noninvasive, greatly reduces the need for surgical intervention and can be applied from the comfort of your home. In whatever case, Perio Protect helps to ensure a successful outcome and healthy gums.
