Are you one of the millions of Americans who are suffering from gingivitis or periodontitis? If so, you may be surprised to know that there is now a long-term, minimally invasive way to treat these gum diseases. Thanks to the Perio Tray by Perio Protect, patients can supplement and improve dental treatments using the Tray to deliver medication deep under the gums to fight gingival infections.
Common Symptoms of Gum Disease
There are a wide array of symptoms often seen in patients suffering from periodontal disease, a few of which include:
- Receding gums
- Bleeding gums, especially when brushing or flossing
- Swollen gums
- Bad breath
- Significant tartar or plaque
Gum Disease Treatment Options
In the past if you were suffering from any of the symptoms listed above, you had a few options, most of which involved repetitive scaling procedures or surgery. While these options may still be needed, Perio Protect may reduce the need for them and provide long-term relief from gum disease.
How Does the Perio Tray Work?
The Perio Tray is prescribed by a dentist and individually customized for each patient with an internal seal to place medication deep below the gum line so that the medication can fight the infectious bacteria that causes gum disease. This ongoing treatment option is key because a toothbrush, floss and rinse often can’t remove the bacteria that causes the disease. While gum disease is not curable, The Perio Tray can help to break up the disease cycle and prevent bacteria from recolonizing. This application of medicine offers dental professionals a unique way to provide long-term gum disease treatment.
How is the Perio Tray Used?
While each patient’s use of the Perio Tray will vary based on their dentist’s recommendations, most patients start with using 2-3 applications per day, each lasting 10-15 minutes. Once the infection is under control, the usage drops to just one time per day and continues over the long-term to better manage the periodontal disease.
