Perio Protect® is a method that is customized for each patient to help manage the communities of bacteria that grow in the spaces or pockets between teeth and gums. Perio Protect® is designed to manage these colonies of bacteria using minimally invasive dentistry and, combined with traditional periodontal treatments, to help promote lasting oral health.
The Perio Protect® procedure begins with a chemical therapy treatment that is applied using a tray with doctor-prescribed solutions. The chemicals are designed to debride (remove) the bacteria from the pockets around the teeth and gums.
The treatment can be performed at home, in between office visits to help manage the growth of bacteria in the pockets. Each person’s treatment will be unique, as your dentist will choose the most appropriate solution for your case. The entire treatment lasts only minutes each day and is non-invasive.
The Perio Protect® Method may be combined with scaling and root planing or surgical therapies to achieve the best possible results and to restore your mouth to lasting oral health.
