What is PerioProtect?
Studies show the vast majority of adults, especially as we get older, may brush regularly but still lose ground over time. This is often because brushing and flossing require both time and technique to be effective. Gum disease may result. In fact 47% of American adults have chronic gum disease and the percentage increases significantly as we age.
Taking care of your teeth and gums, especially if you have been diagnosed with gum disease, can be time consuming and require multiple visits to our office. While we love to see you, we also understand that your time is valuable and you have other places to be.
To make your homecare more effective and to potentially reduce the number of office visits, we offer the prescription Perio Tray to deliver medication deep below the gums to fight the infections causing gum disease. The Perio Tray® holds medication deep below your gums where the infections hide. You just put a small amount of the medicated gel in the tray and wear it for 10-15 minutes. It’s that easy. The tray is made precisely for your mouth so it is very comfortable. After just days of usage, patients report their mouths feel cleaner and their breath is fresher. You will also have a whiter, brighter smile.
If you struggle with bleeding gums, be sure to ask us about prescription Perio Trays®. Taking advantage of this easy, comfortable and effective technology can benefit your health, freshen your breath, and whiten your smile.
With regular use, you should be able to maintain good health with fewer office visits.
