The Perio Tray® By Perio Protect: Non-Invasive Therapy For Gum Disease
Perio Tray™ Therapy is the best way to keep your gums healthy between office visits.
Perio Protect is comfortable, convenient and easy to use. The Trays are non-invasive, and treatment is self-administered at home. Treat gum disease while you watch TV, mow the lawn, or take a shower.
Perio Tray™ carriers are custom-made to fit comfortably over your teeth and gums, delivering prescription medication deep below the gum line.
Our goal is to help patients avoid repetitive scaling and surgery when possible. When patients can’t avoid surgery, Perio Protect can be a welcome compliment to put the disease in remission.
The innovative Perio Protect Method™ utilizes the patented, non-invasive Perio Tray™ with a Customized Precision Fit sealing system that is proven to deliver medication deep into periodontal pockets, where toothbrushes, rinse and floss fail to reach.
Bacteria along the gumline form colonies that grow deep between the teeth and gum tissues. This space is called the periodontal pocket. These pockets can quickly become breeding grounds for the bacteria that cause infection and inflammation. The earliest symptoms of infection are bleeding gums. Tenderness, swollen or red gums are also common.
Gum disease is a source of chronic inflammation that taxes your immune system. The more sources of inflammation you have, the greater the risk you have for heart disease, type 2 diabetes, respiratory disease, inflammatory driven dementia and Alzheimer’s disease, colorectal cancer, pre-term births and low birth-weight babies.
Infected gums have a direct entry point to your bloodstream. Chronic infection also increases the inflammatory burden on your body.
Studies have traced pathogens that lead to gum disease to the same pathogens known to cause other systemic inflammation and illness.
These customized trays end the cycle of disease by extending treatment from the dental chair to the comfort of home. They’re also the only periodontal medicine delivery mechanism with FDA clearance.
Side effects include fresher breath and whiter teeth.
So, you can treat gum disease while freshening your breath and whitening your teeth. As far as side effects go, those are worth experiencing.
