The benefits aren’t limited to your gums.

Treating gum disease with Perio Protect positively affects your gums and your general health. Perio Protect treatment is also comfortable and easy to use. It gives you whiter teeth and the freshest breath of your life!  Plan to get closer to the people you love.


Infected gums have a direct entry point to your bloodstream. Chronic infection also increases the inflammatory burden on your body.

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

Gum disease is a source of chronic inflammation that taxes your immune system. The more  sources of inflammation you have, the greater the risk you have for heart disease, type 2 diabetes, respiratory disease, inflammatory driven dementia and Alzheimer’s disease, colorectal cancer, pre-term births and low birth-weight babies.

Talk to your doctor today or find a provider below to get your gums healthy with Perio Tray™ therapy from Perio Protect.

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.


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.


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.


Pre-term & Low Birth-Weight Babies

Research has shown that pregnant women who have periodontal infections had more than 7 times the risk of preterm delivery of low-birth-weight infants than women without the infections.

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

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

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

Perio Tray™ carriers 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.

Our goal is to help patients avoid repetitive scaling and surgery when possible. When patients can't avoid surgery, Perio Protect can be a welcome compliment to put the disease in remission. Talk to your doctor today or find a provider below.


Side effects include fresher breath and whiter teeth.

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.
