Non-Surgical Gum Disease Treatment With Perio Protect Take-Home Trays
When we look at beautiful smiles, it’s easy to forget how pink, healthy gums send out a message of health and youth. Unfortunately, periodontal (gum) disease affects 80% of Americans, and up to 30% of people may be genetically susceptible. The earliest stage, known as gingivitis, is characterized by red, swollen gums that bleed easily. Advanced periodontal disease (periodontitis) can lead to severe inflammation, gum recession, tooth loss, and bone loss.

What Is Perio Protect?
Perio Protect take-home trays are FDA-cleared and were designed by a dentist to deliver doctor-prescribed medication directly to the site of the gum infection, an approach that is quite different from oral antibiotics.
Your patented Perio Protect trays are similar in appearance to teeth whitening trays or a mouthguard. We will custom fit them for your smile and prepare them with medication that has been prescribed just for you. Your take-home trays deliver the prescription medication deep below the gumline. It will treat your gums while you go about your normal home routines. They are light and comfortable, and as your gum health improves, you can wear the trays less frequently and for shorter periods of time.
Treating The Source
By treating the source of periodontal disease, Perio Protect could defend you against tooth loss and enhance your appearance. It may also protect your overall health because gum disease has been linked to diabetes, osteoarthritis, and cardiovascular diseases, as well as toxemia and pre-term births. And even if you do need surgery to treat your individual case, Perio Protect Trays help prevent infection from recurring and stop the buildup of harmful bacteria.
Perio Protect helps control the bacteria that cause infection ... without systemic antibiotics ... and without surgery! As only a licensed Perio Protect dentist may prescribe this very effective treatment, and as a Premier Perio Protect Provider, we urge you to call to arrange a consultation if you have any symptoms of gum disease including bleeding gums, puffy gums, or chronic bad breath.
