Hello, perfect patient. That’s right, we are talking to you! We just want you to know that your dentist thinks you have hung the moon. You brush like you are supposed to. You floss everyday. You even buy the special mouthwash and gargle it for the exact amount of time that your dentist told you to swish. If we could slow clap for you right now, we absolutely would because honestly, we know that you are doing the best you can. So who’s ready for a check up? Sorry, what? Did you just say that your dentist told you that you are doing everything right but you still have gum disease? Bummer. It’s okay. We can help. At Perio Protect, we work with your dentist to treat your gum disease, all in the comfort of your own home. If you have been diagnosed with gum disease, it’s time to ask your dentist about Perio Protect and to fight the good fight in your pajamas.
The Reality of Gum Disease
Yes, it’s unfortunate that you have gum disease. The reality is that so many people get it, even when they are great about oral hygiene. Don’t get us wrong, your dentist is always putting your mouth first. Your dentist is doing everything in their power to monitor your gums and prevent gum disease. However, once someone gets gum disease, it is extremely hard to treat it without doing something more invasive...until now. In the past, scaling and root planing have been used to help treat gum disease. This type of procedure is followed by frequent maintenance treatments. In extremely severe cases, gum surgery can be performed, which may not be welcomed by some patients.
Perio Protect recognized this problem and we now have a new treatment option that, along with the guidance and care of your dentist, will help to treat gum disease right in the comfort of your own home. This gum disease treatment option is provided by the Perio Tray®. This tray is customized to you individually. As you discuss options with your dentist, talk about the Perio Tray®. While brushing, rinsing, and flossing are important, these methods do not reach deep enough below the gums to manage the bacteria causing gum disease. The Perio Tray® will deliver medication between your teeth and gums, so that the medication can fight the present bacteria and work to keep it from coming back. In just 10-15 minutes a day, you can comfortably treat your gum disease right from home.
Please be aware that you should still continue being the perfect patient that you are! Keep up with that amazing homecare and following up with your dentist who will help you to better manage your gum disease.
