What is Perio Protect®?

Perio Protect is an innovative and non-invasive method of care to help halt the progression of gum disease by addressing destructive bacterial populations harbored in periodontal pockets. With Perio Protect treatment, optimal periodontal health is supported while the need for repetitive deep cleanings, surgical intervention, or the use of antibiotics to address gum disease is reduced.

However, if the treatment of advanced gum disease still warrants a surgical procedure, Perio Protect serves as a valuable adjunct to care; preventing harmful bacteria from recolonizing periodontal pockets and deterring recurrent infection.

How does it work?

Although brushing and flossing every day is essential for maintaining a healthy smile; even a thorough oral hygiene routine cannot effectively reach bacteria hidden deep inside a periodontal pocket. In the past, the only way to get to manage the biofilm growing periodontal pockets has involved multiple office visits and the physical debridement of the area by means of deep cleanings (scaling and root planing) or gum surgery.

As a more convenient and comfortable way to manage gum disease, the innovative Perio Protect Method uses easy-to-wear customized trays to deliver prescription-strength hydrogen peroxide gel into existing periodontal pockets. Once the gel is introduced into the pockets, it disrupts the formation of the oral biofilm, oxygenates the area and reduces the bacterial population.

An Easier and More Comfortable Approach to Care!

Fighting gum disease is easier and more comfortable than ever before with the Perio Protect Method. By simply wearing the patented Perio Trays® with the recommended amount of medicated gel each day as prescribed by our office, patients can cleanse periodontal pockets and combat disease-causing bacteria. And, as an added benefit of care, Perio Protect freshens your breath and whitens your smile!
