If you’re suffering from gum disease, you’ve likely experienced some of these symptoms: bleeding or receding gums, plaque or tartar buildup, spaces developing between your teeth, swollen and red or tender gums, bad breath, sensitive teeth, and loose or mobile teeth. All of these symptoms of gum disease are to be expected, but what you might not realize is that there is a better way to treat gingivitis and periodontitis. With the Perio Tray® from Perio Protect, you can deliver medication comfortably deep under your gums to fight the bacteria that cause the disease. When you combine this prescription homecare therapy with professional dental care, you have a more effective gum disease treatment plan.
How Does the Perio Tray Work?
The Perio Tray looks like a mouth guard but it is thinner and custom made according to measurements taken by your dentist or hygienist to create an internal peripheral seal and extension system. The seal and extension system work like a gasket to prevent medication from leaking all over your mouth and to place the medication deep below your gums where the bacteria hide. The medication can then fight the bacteria responsible for gum diseases.
With this unique design, the Perio Tray is able to administer medications where ordinary dental tools cannot reach. Even with frequent brushing, flossing, and rinsing, you just can’t get deep enough to effectively keep those areas below the gums clean between office visits where the bacteria recolonize. It only takes seconds to put the medication in the tray and you use the Perio Tray at home for just minutes each day.
Benefits of Perio Protect
The Perio Tray by Perio Protect offers patients several benefits, all of which make it an attractive option. With the Perio Tray, you’ll be able to administer medication comfortably, at home, for more effective bacterial management that should get you healthier faster and reduce the frequency of visits to your dentist’s office. Administering Perio Protect is as simple as inserting your Perio Tray for 10-15 minutes each day. Patients who use Perio Protect have been known to have consistently fresher breath and whiter teeth. You don’t have to chew gum all day to mask bad breath, you can make a real change for better health.
Decreasing the Need for Surgery with the Perio Tray
Don’t avoid treatment. You want to catch the disease in time and start treatment before surgery is needed. If the situation is already so severe that surgery is necessary, you can maintain your surgical gains long-term with prescription Perio Tray therapy.
