Perio Protect

Perio Protect in Massachusetts and Connecticut

Neglecting proper oral hygiene after eating or drinking can accumulate bacteria on teeth, forming plaque. If not removed through brushing and flossing, plaque can cause gum disease or periodontal disease, resulting in inflammation, swelling, infection, and tooth loss. Untreated gum disease has also been linked to systemic health issues such as cardiovascular disease, diabetes, respiratory problems, and adverse pregnancy outcomes. Regular brushing, flossing, professional dental cleanings, and early detection through dental exams are essential in preventing gum disease and maintaining overall oral health. Prioritizing oral hygiene is crucial for a healthy smile and overall well-being.

What is Perio Protect?

Perio Protect is a customized treatment for gum disease that uses dental trays filled with medication worn at home. The trays deliver medication directly to the affected areas between the gums and teeth to combat bacteria. It is used in conjunction with regular dental cleanings and oral hygiene practices, and the medication may vary depending on the severity of the gum disease. 

The Perio Protect procedure utilizes custom-fitted trays to deliver a 1.7 percent hydrogen peroxide solution to kill bacteria associated with gum disease. This innovative process can result in improved oral health and fresher breath, potentially reducing the need for more invasive surgical procedures. The custom-fit trays ensure maximum effectiveness, and consulting with a dental professional can help determine if Perio Protect is a suitable treatment option.

Is the process of Perio Protect treatment time-consuming?

The Perio Protect treatment is known for its convenience and ease of use, as it involves the use of custom-fit trays that deliver medication directly to the gum pockets. The treatment process typically involves a few minutes of daily at-home use, making it a simple and efficient option for managing gum disease. While the duration of treatment may vary depending on the severity of the gum disease and individual patient needs, it is generally not known for being a lengthy process compared to other traditional gum disease treatments. Consult with us  provides to determine if Perio Protect is the right treatment option for your specific oral health needs.
