Learn About The Comprehensive Approach to Gum Disease Treatment.

Perio Protect is a comprehensive approach to gum disease treatment. The approach combines dental cleanings with the comfortable Perio Tray ® delivery of medication that patients use at home between office visits. The Perio Tray is similar to a mouth-guard, but it has a special sealing system to deliver medication below the gums. The trays use a low concentration hydrogen peroxide gel that stays below the gums long enough to kill the bacteria causing gum disease, cavities, and bleeding due to gingivitis. With as little as 10-15 minutes each day, you can dramatically reduce need for future restorations, infections, and periodontal treatments. The trays are made to last for years and if used as directed, can dramatically improve not only oral health, but total-body health as well.

Studies have traced pathogens that lead to gum disease to the same pathogens known to cause other systemic inflammation and illness.  Treating gum disease with the Perio Protect Method has been shown to reduce the presence of the most damaging pathogens by up to 90%. Gum disease treatment helps reduce the risk of heart disease, type 2 diabetes, respiratory disease, Alzheimer’s disease, Colorectal Cancer and pre-term births and low birth-weight babies.
