Have you visited your dentist in awhile? Regular dental check-ups and cleanings will ultimately be your best chance at reducing your risk for gum disease and gaining the best treatment options if you have the disease. At Perio Protect®, our aim is to work with dentists and hygienists and offer supplemental care to those patients who need to be treated for gum disease. The Perio Tray is meant to better manage gum disease between dental visits and perhaps while other treatment options are being explored in the office.
What is The Perio Tray?
Once you and your dentist discuss your treatment options and you decide to use the Perio Tray, your dentist will make a mold of your teeth and will then give you a tray that is custom designed especially for your mouth. You’ll take the tray home, apply the medication onto the tray, and then wear it for approximately 10-15 minutes per day. By using our tray, the medication applied will be able to reach the bacteria below the gums that brushing, flossing, and rinsing alone just can’t reach. It ultimately provides a more effective option for gum disease management.
Working With Other Treatments
While the Perio Tray is extremely effective, it does not replace the work that dental professionals do to keep your mouth healthy, and it will likely not be the only form of treatment necessary. Scaling and periodontal maintenance are still important. Many people, however, aren’t the biggest fans of this type of gum disease treatment. This is why the Perio Tray is so helpful. The Perio Tray improves scaling results, it makes scaling less time consuming, and many people have said that doing treatments at home with the Perio Tray makes maintenance therapy more comfortable. This is likely due to the fact that the Perio Tray reduces the inflammation, which is the main reason why people experience discomfort. Additionally, using the Perio Tray can even decrease the need for repetitive maintenance care. If you could push your dental visit back a month, would you?
If you have gum disease and would like to explore your options with Perio Protect, we encourage you to initiate a discussion with your dentist today. The Perio Tray ultimately helps to make other dental treatments easier and more comfortable. Protect your teeth between dental visits and ask about Perio Protect today.
