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.
When people are first diagnosed with the chronic form of gum disease called periodontitis, they’re faced with the realization that they will be fighting this disease for the rest of their lives. If you have faced this diagnosis, you’re not alone. Millions of American adults, almost half of us, are dealing with gum disease, and it has been hard to manage because toothbrush, rinse and floss don’t get deep enough to fight the infections. Thankfully, a doctor at Perio Protect developed a patented treatment approach and tray that delivers medication deep below the gums to offer long-term relief from gum disease.
Everyone wants healthy teeth and gums, but unfortunately gum disease (also referred to as gingivitis or periodontitis) is a major problem in the our society. With a reported 80% of American adults showing some signs of this disease, it’s critical that dental professionals are able to offer effective treatment as well as ongoing disease management to provide the highest level of care to patients. Thanks to Perio Protect®, dentists can use the Perio Tray® to ensure ongoing medication is provided between visits for superior oral bacteria management.
While millions of Americans struggle with an array of gum diseases including gingivitis and periodontitis, there has never been a long-term way to deal with these chronic mouth conditions. For years, the common treatment for these diseases included the cleaning of root surfaces (also referred to as root planning or scaling) in conjunction with the use of antibiotics. This treatment method is often uncomfortable and additional cleanings have to be repeated every 3 months.
While a large portion of the U.S. population suffers from gum disease, until recently, dentists and their patients didn’t have many options when it came to treatment. Toothbrush, rinse and floss just don’t get deep enough to manage the bacteria below the gums. Now, dentists have a new way to treat and prevent gum disease. This new treatment program is called Perio Protect® and it uses the Perio Tray® to strategically dispense medication between office visits to help treat gum diseases such as gingivitis and periodontitis.
Our teeth and gums are some of the most important parts of our body, yet so many of us neglect them. Proper oral hygiene is critical to prevent oral bacterial infections, which are extremely common. In fact, millions of Americans have been diagnosed with gingivitis or periodontitis, and, up until now, they didn’t have many options when it comes to minimally invasive ways to treat these gum diseases. Thankfully with Perio Protect®, dental patients can receive supplemental treatment to fight gingival infections in just 10-15 minutes per day.
