At A New Smile Dental Group, we provide our patients with all of the latest dental advances, including “Perio Protect.” This is a comprehensive treatment that includes professional cleanings, and the use of a specially manufactured tray that delivers medication to your gums between your treatments. This tray is similar to a mouth-guard. It is manufactured with a special sealing system so that dental medications can be delivered below the gum area. This new treatment has achieved very positive results for patients suffering from periodontal disease, and is simple to use, taking only a few minutes a day.
Minimizing the Need for Surgery and Antibiotics for Periodontal Disease
Some people have a condition in which the bacteria growing below the gums reproduces very quickly. The Perio Protect system makes it possible to treat the bacteria grown in a way that is both comfortable and effective. Avoiding surgery and the use of antibiotics are important to your overall health, and this new, advanced system brings new hope for those who have ongoing problems with gum disease. Some people are prone to developing gum disease.
Gum diseases have been linked to more serious physical problems, including the development of diabetes, respiratory diseases, and Alzheimer’s, as well as pre-term and low-weight births. It is now believed by many health professionals and researchers that oral bacteria entering the blood stream may be the underlying cause of other more serious health problems.
Delivering Medication to Hard-to-Reach Areas of Your Teeth
Our dental professionals may recommend that you use Perio Protect to ward off further gum disease and the potential health risks associated with it. It is now accepted that the over-use of antibiotics is not advisable, and the Perio Protect system allows you to treat gum disease without taking antibiotics.
FDA Approved Treatment for Periodontal Disease
Perio Protect is an FDA-approved treatment, and was awarded “Best Product 2013” by Dental Product Shopper. The system has been found to be very effective for those who suffer from ongoing periodontal disease. The tray is custom-manufactured for each individual patient for a perfect, comfortable fit. The seals and extensions in the tray are crafted to correspond to exactly what that patient needs in medication delivery to specific areas of the mouth.
Perio Protect: Non-Invasive and Comfortable
One of the greatest benefits of the Perio Protect tray system is that it is non-invasive, takes only a few minutes, and is comfortable for the patient – and easy to add to your daily regimen of oral care. Typically, the tray is worn for just a few minutes a day, and as the gums heal, the use of the trays is reduced. Addressing infections in the gums before they get worse is important, and helps our patients to avoid more invasive treatments – and they appreciate it!
