Introducing Perio Protect®
Now, we can offer our patients the Perio Tray from Perio Protect®, a comfortable tray used at home between your regular office visits to deliver medication deep into infected pockets. The medication can then fight infection that is effecting your overall health. Our goal is to improve our patients’ homecare so that invasive procedures can be reduced. We hope that our patients appreciate both the convenience and the stress-free, hassle-free delivery method. Please call our office at 561-627-2399 and ask one of our team for more information on providing you Perio Protect treatments.
Do you need Perio Protect®?
Gum disease is caused by a bacterial infection hidden below your gums. Dental cleanings can effectively remove the bacteria, but the bacteria re-populate almost immediately and the infectious cycle continues. It’s important to keep brushing and flossing, but toothbrush, rinse and floss just can’t reach deep enough to address infections below your gums.
The Perio Tray® by Perio Protect gently applies medication deep under the gums to fight the infections and prevent their recurrence. You use it at home for just minutes each day. The Tray is comfortable, flexible, and custom-fit precisely for your mouth.
It is important to treat active infections. Almost 50% of American adults have chronic periodontitis, an advanced form of gum disease that taxes the immune system and may make it harder for your body to fight off other infectious challenges. Infections in your gums may also contribute to other chronic health problems like arterial inflammation.
Not only does Perio Tray® therapy help improve your health, it can also help you smile with more confidence. Patients using Perio Trays® report whiter teeth and fresher breath. Chronic bad breath often signals chronic gum disease. Address the disease and freshen your breath.
If you’ve been diagnosed with gum disease (gingivitis or periodontitis), visit our office and ask our team if Perio Trays® are right for you.
Our Office, COVID-19, and Perio Protect®
Many new procedures of infection control and social distancing (where applicable) have been introduced in our office to insure the safety of our patients and our staff. We use ozone room sterilization, ultraviolet lights, high volume suction, hospital grade room spray and many other procedures designed to keep our office as a safe environment for us all.
The Perio Protect® system is a high-tech, highly efficient solution and is ultimately suitable for fighting the Corona pandemic by supporting, as well as rehabilitating, your immune system. Before coming to our office, our team will introduce you to the procedures regarding safety management and the information needed to learn more about our office policies.
