Perio Protect

The benefits aren’t limited to your gums.

Treating gum disease with Perio Protect positively affects not only your hygiene but also the overall health of your body. It’s a comfortable option to help reduce the need for repetitive scraping, scaling or surgery.

PERIO PROTECT & YOUR COMFORT

Perio Protect is comfortable, convenient and easy to use. The Trays are non-invasive, and treatment is self-administered at home.

Perio Trays are custom-made to fit comfortably over your teeth and gums, delivering prescription medication deep below the gum line.

The trays are non-invasive, and since treatment is self-administered in the comfort of your own home, it won't disrupt your schedule. Treat gum disease while you watch TV, mow the lawn, or take a shower.

For some patients, surgery may be unavoidable. But even for them, Perio Protect can be a welcome compliment to surgery, preventing the infection from recurring and harmful bacteria from recolonizing.

In short, it helps to ensure better outcomes. It’s simple, comfortable and effective. And dentists notice a higher incidence of compliance due to the ease and convenience of use.

PERIO PROTECT & YOUR HEALTH

The gums are a direct entry point to your body's bloodstream—and its vital systems.

Bacterial clumps, known as biofilms, can break from their cluster and have a “seeding” effect throughout the rest of the body’s bloodstream.

Studies have traced pathogens that lead to gum disease to the same pathogens known to cause other systemic inflammation and illness.

Treating gum disease with the Perio Protect Method has been shown to reduce the presence of the most damaging pathogens by up to 90%.

Gum disease treatment helps reduce the risk of heart disease, type 2 diabetes, respiratory disease, Alzheimer’s disease, Colorectal Cancer and pre-term births and low birth-weight babies.

Heart-Disease

Heart Disease

Gum disease can lead to heart disease, stroke, blood clots, chronic inflammation and atherosclerosis. Inflammation of the arteries is the common denominator. And that can be caused by oral bacteria entering the blood stream and combining with fat deposits to cause plaque and restrict blood flow. Restricted blood flow can lead to additional buildup, causing clots that can trigger all of the above.

Diabetes

Type 2 Diabetes

Diabetic patients with gum disease have reported higher blood sugar levels than diabetic patients with healthier gums. Further studies have indicated that patients who underwent gum disease treatment saw a drop in their blood sugar levels for three months.

Lung-Disease

Respiratory Disease

The bacteria present in gum disease has been identified in the lung tissue of patients with lung abscesses. This correlation is being monitored further.

Birth

Pre-term & Low Birth-Weight Babies

Studies have show that pregnant women with gum disease have a 57% incidence of how birth-weight babies and a 50% greater incidence of pre-term deliveries.

Alzheimers

Alzheimer’s Disease

The bacteria associated with Alzheimer’s Disease have been isolated in the periodontal pockets and along the nerves from the teeth to the brain tissue. When these bacteria are introduced into brain cultures, beta amyloid is formed, which is the substance associated with Alzheimer’s.

Colorectal-Cancer

Colorectal Cancer

A common anaerobic bacteria prevalent in periodontal disease has been identified as a driver of colorectal cancer.

PERIO PROTECT & YOUR HYGIENE

Side effects include fresher breath and whiter teeth.

There’s the obvious impact on healthier gums. That’s important. In fact, that’s the goal.

The Perio Protect Method was devised as a way to treat gum infections without surgery and with results. It resolves infection while reducing gum disease-causing bacteria, making way for long-lasting results.

By drastically reducing bacteria, Perio Protect also freshens your breath.

In addition, the same antimicrobials that treat gum disease also happen to deliver prescription-strength whitening benefits.

So, you can treat gum disease while freshening your breath and whitening your teeth. As far as side effects go, those are worth experiencing.

Patients are empowered to care for themselves daily—beyond brushing and flossing.
