Perio Protect is an innovative treatment regimen that utilizes custom trays, molded to the mouth of the individual patient and designed to deliver bacteria-fighting gel deep below the gumline where brushing and flossing simply cannot reach.
When you receive your custom Perio Trays, your dental team will show you how to place a small amount of gel in each tray and how to use them. Your dental team will also design a treatment plan specifically for you, as the duration and frequency varies for each patient.
The trays are designed with a patented seal to place and holds the gel where it is most effective—at the site of harmful bacteria deep below the gum line. A low concentration of hydrogen peroxide gently and thoroughly cleanses the periodontal pockets, combatting bacteria, whitening your teeth and freshening your breath.
For some patients, the non-invasive Perio Trays reduce the need for surgical intervention. For others, it can be a potent compliment to traditional treatment methods, helping to ensure optimal gum health.
While there is no “cure” for gum disease, it can be managed with daily treatment to prevent pathogenic bacteria from recolonizing. When the desired results have been achieved, your dentist will revise your treatment plan to maintain the results.
The Perio Protect Method is an appealing, minimally invasive option for advanced periodontitis and early-stage gum disease alike. It is a holistic way to care for gums and many biological and functional medicine dentists have adopted its use.
