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.
How Does Perio Protect® Treat Oral Bacteria Infection?
The Perio Tray®, which is a proprietary oral medication delivery system, treats the oral bacterial infection in a comfortable way that can potentially minimize the need for surgery and antibiotics. Our tray features a sealing system that helps to better deliver medication below the gums. This patented system allows the medication to get deep below the gum line and provide ongoing management for oral bacterial infections.
Perio Protect® uses a prescription Perio Tray® which is provided by a Perio Protect® dentist. This tray system allows medication to be delivered deep below the gum line between office visits. Research has shown that patients receive better results when using Perio Protect® in conjunction with regular dental cleanings, as opposed to dental cleanings alone.
Common Gum Disease Symptoms
Patients that are battling various gum diseases could be experiencing any of the following symptoms:
- Sensitive teeth
- Spaces developing between teeth
- Loose teeth
- Bad breath
- Swollen, tender or red gums
- Receding gums, which make teeth appear to be longer
- Bleeding gums, especially when flossing or brushing
- Visually obvious tartar, or plaque
If you’re suffering from any of the symptoms listed above, your gums may be infected or diseased. It’s critical that you see a dentist as soon as possible to prevent the condition from getting worse. Studies have shown a link between various gum diseases and a wide array of very serious diseases including Type 2 diabetes, heart disease, respiratory disease, strokes, chronic inflammation and others.
