Why Perio Protect?
Perio Protect is an innovative approach to treating gum (periodontal) disease. Most times, early stage gum disease can be reversed simply with proper daily brushing and flossing combined with regular dental cleanings. Without proper maintenance gum disease will worsen, and eventually get to a stage where surgical action will have to be taken to save and restore the gums. Of course, this is often uncomfortable and invasive, so Perio Protect aims to stop gum disease in its tracks before surgery is necessary. The Perio Protect method uses its own Perio Tray, which medicates gum disease in the most comfortable and minimally invasive way possible.
How does Perio Protect work?
The Perio Tray is a mouthguard-like device which is custom-fitted for each patient, maximizing comfort and effectiveness. The design of the tray helps to deliver medication deep into the affected gums and needs only a few minutes a day to do its work.
After being fitted by a Regina dentist such as Dr. Loreen Larson from Health Style Dental, the special internal seals in your customized tray will be able to apply medication directly to the spaces in between your gums and the teeth. The pressure from these seals force medication deeper into the pockets than any other noninvasive periodontal disease treatment.
The Perio Tray is very simple to use. Simply apply the specified medication to the tray and wear it for a short duration as determined by your dentist. When first beginning treatment, most patients require approximately 2-3 applications per day of about 10-15 minutes each. The frequency and length of applications will lessen as your gum disease lessens as well.
