Gingivitis and periodontal disease continue to affect millions of Americans – in fact, 47% of American adults have chronic gum disease. But other than improving oral hygiene, there hasn’t been a way to treat periodontal concerns at home and avoid the need for invasive treatment.
Enter Perio Protect. This system delivers medication deep below the gum line with a series of custom trays. Patients simply wear their trays for 10-15 minutes per day to gain long-term home treatment of periodontal disease. Trays are comfortable and the process is easy to fit into your daily hygiene.
By combining Perio Protect with routine dental exams, patients are better able to avoid advanced gum disease. This means preventing the need for multiple scaling procedures, surgery, and other more invasive measures for treating periodontal disease.
Each patient receives a customized Perio Tray that contains an internal seal. This seal helps place medication below the gums, where toothbrush, floss and mouthwash can’t reach. The medication helps break the cycle that leads to recurring gum disease, in a process detailed below.
There is also some evidence that oral bacteria control may contribute to overall health. Oral bacteria related to periodontal disease may impact other conditions like diabetes, heart disease, stroke, and more.
Patients appreciate the ease of use, comfort of the trays, and the ongoing improvement to their periodontal health. Patient testimonials include these highlights:
If you have chronic periodontal disease, you are a prime candidate for Perio Protect. All you need to do to learn more is ask Dr. Zymantas about this medication at your next dental exam. Take this step to improve your health and protect your gums for years to come – it’s as simple as a set of trays.
