New Service Announcement: Perio Protect

Your health is our top priority! Treatment of inflammation and prevention of infection and disease are more important than ever.

We are proud to introduce a new service to help fight inflammation and infection within your mouth—Perio Protect®.  Perio Protect® combines in-office treatment with daily at-home treatment to help combat disease such as gum disease. Gum disease starts when a community of bacteria called a biofilm develops in the space or pocket between the teeth and gum tissue, causing an infection. 

The symptoms of gum disease can include:

  • bleeding gums
  • sensitive teeth
  • persistent bad breath
  • swollen, red or tender gums
  • spaces developing between your teeth
  • receding gums (teeth appear longer)
  • loose or mobile teeth

Gum disease is commonly treated with professional dental cleanings that physically remove the biofilm.  However, bacterial growth is hard to control between office visits. Biofilms regenerate very easily and are difficult to reach under the gums with a toothbrush, rinse and floss.

Perio Protect® allows for a customized approach to help manage bacteria and disrupt the formation of biofilm.  Perio Protect® uses a prescription tray (Perio Tray®) and medication of 1.7% hydrogen peroxide gel (Perio Gel®). The Perio Tray® has a unique sealing system that keeps the Perio Gel® at the site of the infection. The Perio Gel® is not only effective at killing pathogens and reducing microbial loads, but will freshen your breath and gradually whiten your teeth.

Perio Trays® are easy use! You can complete the treatment while reading, exercising, showering, watching TV—whenever it is convenient for you!  Results are noted within days.
