Untreated periodontal disease (also known as gum disease) can cause extensive tooth loss and many other health issues. It is caused by a buildup of bacteria on the teeth that get into the spaces between your gums and teeth, known as periodontal pockets. Symptoms of periodontal disease include tenderness, inflammation and infection.
The primary means of treating gum disease has typically been via surgery. However, a new treatment option known as Perio Protect® is now available. This method can help to save your teeth without you having to go through invasive gum surgery. If you would like more information on how this treatment method can help you manage your gum disease, book your consultation today with one of our highly skilled Perio Protect dentists.
Perio Protect treatment is an extensive, effective method of treating gum disease. This is because the dentist is able to customize the treatment for each patient so that the patient can manage any damaging biofilms on the teeth or in the periodontal pockets. Perio Protect is not invasive like surgery, as surgery involves taking out gum tissue, which in turn makes the teeth more sensitive. Surgery also leaves behind wounds that can gather more bacteria before they are fully healed.
The Perio Protect method uses trays that fit in the mouth and deliver peroxide inside the periodontal pockets. This low concentration of hydrogen peroxide (1.7 percent) kills the bacteria. The trays are customized to fit your teeth and hold the medication in a way that delivers it to the areas your mouth needs it the most. It gently cleans gums and also freshens breath. Perio Protect can help you avoid surgery. When used in combination with traditional treatment methods, it can improve the results.
Since there is no cure for gum disease, Perio Protect treatment is an excellent way to manage bacteria buildup and to prevent bacteria from re-colonization. This treatment is highly effective because it can be repeated at home on a daily basis. To learn more about how to utilize Perio Protect trays and medication at home, contact our office today.
The amount of time that you will need to undergo treatment with Perio Protect in Roxborough depends on how extensive your particular case of gum disease is. The process starts with your dentist taking an impression of your teeth and creating a mold. This mold is sent to a lab so that your custom-fitted trays can be made. These trays fit in your mouth like a mouth guard and you place your medication in them. You will wear your trays for 10 to 15 minutes at a time.
Your dentist will decide how often you need to wear your trays to achieve the kind of Perio Protect results you want. Many patients who write Perio Protect reviews state that they see a drastic difference by using their trays daily.
One of the primary benefits of Perio Protect is that is a convenient, easy to use and noninvasive solution for treating gum disease. Since it can be done at home, it is easy to fit Perio Protect treatments into your life without having to disrupt your schedule with frequent visits to your dentist’s office.
