Gum disease is a bacterial infection that affects the gums. Antimicrobial medication is an important part of any gum disease treatment. However, because of a saliva like fluid called crevicular flow, it can be difficult to keep the medication between the gums, where it’s needed most. Until now. With Perio Protect® trays, the medication stays put, giving bacteria nowhere to hide.
Perio Protect® trays are custom-designed based on impressions of your teeth and gums. The trays are lined with the medication, and they can be used in the comfort of your own home. This means you can continue to fight gum disease even after you leave the dentist’s office. While treatment times will vary according to the severity of the disease, many patients notice dramatic results after just one week of use. Perio Protect trays® work best in conjunction with other periodontal professional therapies.
