Commonly called gum disease, periodontal disease is caused by colonies of bacteria present on your teeth that get inside of the periodontal pockets. Periodontal pockets are the spaces that exist in between your teeth and gums. Gum disease can cause you to experience tenderness, infections and inflammation. If left untreated, gum disease can lead to tooth loss, as well as many other medical issues.
The traditional method of treating periodontal disease has been invasive surgery. However, Perio Protect® is a newly developed treatment option that can rescue your teeth without you having to undergo surgery. If you are interested in Perio Protect performed by one of our Perio Protect dentists, give our office a call today.
Perio Protect treatment is a method of treatment that is customized by a dentist for each patient. This treatment helps in managing the destructive biofilms that form on the teeth. Past treatment methods utilized surgery, which is invasive and involves removing gum tissue, which makes the teeth more sensitive. Surgery also causes wounds that are at a high risk of collecting even more bacteria before they have fully healed.
Perio Protect utilizes a series of patented trays that deliver peroxide into the periodontal pockets, which kills the bacteria in the pockets. The treatment trays are custom fitted to your teeth and are designed to hold the medication so that it is delivered to the areas where you need treatment the most. The medication used in the treatment process is a low dosage of hydrogen peroxide (1.7 percent) that carefully cleans your gums and keeps your breath fresh. It also makes it less likely for you to need surgery. In cases where surgery is still necessary, Perio Treatment can help to improve the results.
There is no cure for gum disease, making Perio Protect an ideal treatment method for managing bacteria buildup and preventing the bacteria from again taking hold in the gum pockets. Perio Protect treatment is so effective because it can be done at home every day. For more information on how you can use this at-home gum disease treatment, talk to one of our Perio Protect dentists today.
The time it takes to see results from your Perio Protect treatments will vary depending upon the severity of your periodontal disease. The beginning phase of the treatment begins with your dentist making a customized mold of your teeth and sending it to a lab so that your trays can be made. The trays fit into your mouth just as a mouth guard would and you will place the medication into the trays.
Your dentist will decide how often you need to wear your trays to achieve the results you need. Daily use can achieve dramatic effects. The trays are only worn for period 10 to 15 minutes at a time.
