When your dentist diagnoses you with gum disease, it can be a bit of a shock. This rings especially true for those who brush regularly, floss religiously, and rinse like no one’s business. Some may feel disheartened as they think they’ve done all the right things and still something, somewhere went wrong. Others may say ”eh, it’s only my mouth,” and never fully understand the extent of the real issue until it is too late and their teeth start falling out. Whether you are the patient who is disheartened to hear the news or the patient who wants to go away, Perio Protect® has a great addition to your gum disease treatment plan. How does it work well for everyone? This simple treatment, prescribed by your dentist, is an easy way to improve your gum health.
The Perio Tray
First and foremost, the Perio Tray is a great addition to your gum disease treatment plan because it works like no other treatment out there. While brushing, flossing, and rinsing are all necessary elements of oral hygiene, no amount of them can ever reach deep below the gums like the Perio Tray can. The Perio Tray is customized for your mouth to deliver medication deep between the teeth and gums and fight the gingival infections that are just not able to be reached with any other routine homecare tool. Wearing the tray in short daily increments provides healthier outcomes and more effective management of the disease.
Part of the Routine
If you’re a minimalist who wants to do the least amount of work to keep their mouth healthy, the Perio Tray covers you too. This treatment includes a daily application that only takes 10-15 minutes. By incorporating this as part of the daily routine, the treatment is done in the comfort of your own home and does not require tons of effort put forth by the actual user. For the busy user, you can multitask. While you wear the tray you can get other things done. This comfortable, less invasive option is ideal for the patient who is dreading treatment as well as the one who doesn’t want to do much to treat the gum disease between dental visits. It is one of the most minimally invasive gum disease treatments available to date.
While the Perio Tray is an important addition to your gum disease treatment plan, it does not take away from the need for routine dental visits with your dentist. This tray essentially adds important benefits for you between dental visits. Additionally, since gum disease is never actually “cured”, it is not the only thing you should do for oral wellness. This is why following up with your dentist is the first step in the right direction. For more information about Perio Protect and the Perio Tray, contact us today at 1.877.434.GUMS (4867).
