Perio Protect – An Adjunct Treatment for Gum Disease

Periodontal disease, or gum disease, is treated with a deep cleaning by our highly-trained hygienist. After a ‘deep cleaning’ is performed we may advise further supportive therapy, such as the Perio protect system.


What is Perio Protect?

First, we fabricate a set of custom trays for your teeth. We instruct you on the placement of a special gel into the trays which is then dispensed into areas of the mouth that need treatment. In some instances we may add a topical antibiotic to be placed in the trays along with the gel.

Perio protect treatment may also be helpful for other situations including:

-Halitosis or bad mouth odor

-Dry mouth or Xerostomia

-Patients with acid refulx who suffer of dental disease due to their reflux

-Patient with a high risk of tooth decay. The bacteria that is the main culprit in tooth decay is targeted by the special gel product in the trays.

-Stabilization of dental disease in medically compromised patients -Maintenance of dental implants
