What is Perio Protect Treatment?
Perio Protect®is a comprehensive gum disease treatment method that is customized for individual patients to help manage biofilms growing in periodontal pockets.
The overall goal of the Perio Protect Method™ is to manage oral biofilm with minimal surgery or antibiotics.
The Method is a combination of treatments, including a non-invasive chemical debriding therapy used in conjunction with traditional mechanical debriding procedures. The chemical therapy involves a tray delivery (Perio Tray) of 1.7% hydrogen peroxide gel to chemically debride biofilm from the periodontal pocket and alter the pocket's microbiological environment to disrupt biofilm growth.
With the Perio Protect Method, you can place prescribed solutions into periodontal pockets between office visits using an appropriately formed, customized dental tray. This placement helps manage biofilm more effectively. Research shows that 1.7% hydrogen peroxide gel both debrides the biofilm and oxygenates the pocket.
The Perio Tray® by Perio Protect: Non-Invasive Therapy for Gum Disease
The Perio Tray by Perio Protect gently applies medication deep under the gums to fight the infections. You use it at home for just minutes each day. The Tray is comfortable, flexible, and custom-fit precisely for your mouth.
With Perio Tray therapy, you have a new chance against the infections. In additional to healthier gums, patients commonly report whiter teeth and fresher breath. If you’ve been told that you have gum disease (gingivitis or periodontitis), ask our team if Perio Trays are right for you.
