For many years, when it came to treatment for gum disease, there were only a few options. Dentists either did a deep cleaning, referred to as scaling or root planing, to clean root surfaces, or patients were left with surgery for the most advanced cases of gum disease. Both of these options were painful, and required significant ongoing maintenance treatments to ensure success. In an effort to offer additional non-surgical gum disease treatment options Perio Protect® was born. If you’re in the Puerto Rico area, Dr. Patricia Lugo has been providing Perio Protect® to her patients since 2004. Read along to learn more about Perio Protect® and Dr. Lugo.
Non Surgical Gum Disease Treatment
In certain cases, gum surgery is a requirement because the gum disease has advanced to a level that renders other treatment options ineffective. However, for the millions of people suffering from gum disease, Perio Protect® offers an additional treatment option that can be used in conjunction with other oral care provided by dentists like Dr. Lugo.
Perio Protect® uses the Perio Tray® to dispense medication between office visits. This tray system allows the medication to go deep below the gum line to fight harmful bacteria that can quickly reproduce and ultimately cause significant gum and teeth damage. Perio Protect® is minimally invasive, comfortable and can be used on a long-term basis.
Oral Bacteria is Hard to Fight
While brushing your teeth, flossing and using mouthwash on a regular basis is beneficial, it unfortunately is sometimes not enough to prevent you from getting gum disease. This is why Perio Protect® was created as a complementary way for dentists to provide a less invasive option for treating gum diseases such as gingivitis and periodontitis.
Dr. Lugo has been using Perio Protect® since 2014 and has helped hundreds of patients. She has been pleased with the results. Should you want to reach out to Dr. Lugo directly, her contact information is below:
