Gum disease is the inflammation of gum tissue and the loss of bone supporting the gums that result from infection in perio pockets (the spaces between the teeth and gums). You can learn more about gum disease, including its causes and treatments here.
The most common sign of gum disease is blood in the sink after brushing. Gum disease is usually diagnosed by your dentist, hygienist or periodontist. But you can take our online survey to identify if you are a candidate for treatment.
Advanced gum disease has traditionally been treated through a series of surgeries. The Perio Protect Method® can be used to help prevent the need for surgery or as a follow-up to surgery to ensure the best possible patient outcome. The earlier the disease is detected, the less likely there will be a need for surgical intervention. If you are diagnosed with gum disease, be sure to talk to your doctor and ask about available options, including Perio Protect.
Perio Protect is an innovative treatment regimen that utilizes custom trays, molded to the mouth of an individual patient and designed to deliver bacteria-fighting medicine deep below the gum line where brushing and flossing simply cannot reach. We could go on about its benefits and results, but that’s what this entire website is dedicated to. Learn more under How It Works, Benefits and Results.
