Summerlin, Las Vegas, and Henderson Nevada
Are you one of the millions of Americans that have been diagnosed with gum disease? If so, the staff at Inspire Dental of Summerlin can use Perio Protect as part of our comprehensive treatment of this potentially devastating oral disease.
What is Perio Protect?
Perio Protect represents the first long-term, minimally invasive, non-surgical treatment for gum disease that has become widely available in periodontal treatment. Administering medicine through a Perio Tray, Perio Protect is an effective element in the treatment of gum disease that has been proven to reduce the need for surgery to repair the oral health consequences of gum disease.
The Perio Trays are custom made for each patient. To use, medication is placed in the trays. Then, when the trays are inserted in the mouth, the medication is administered below the gums and deep into the pockets that form between teeth and gums during periodontitis—the advanced stage of gum disease.
Just wearing a Perio Tray for a few minutes each day treats gum tissue and helps heal the gums from the disease’s devastating effects.
The benefits of Perio Protect
If gum disease reaches the advanced stage of periodontitis, then permanent damage has been done to your oral health. Perio Protect cannot repair this damage, but it can prevent additional damage and help manage the disease by administering the Perio Tray between visits to your dentist.
Perio Protect represents a more comfortable and convenient treatment option for gum disease without dealing with treatments that are more costly such as surgery.
Patients who use a Perio Tray also have reported less bleeding of the gums—a common symptom during the initial stage of gum disease, gingivitis—and reduced depth of perio pockets when the medication is administered in combination with other treatment options such as repetitive therapy. Perio Protect also can whiten teeth and freshen breath.
Why should I use Perio Protect?
Gum disease jeopardizes your oral health, as well as your overall health. These risks are associated with severe cases of gum disease that have gone untreated for quite some time, as the bacteria from the infection in the gums spreads into your body.
This spread of bacteria can increase the risk of any of the following chronic or life-threatening ailments:
- Cardiac disease
- Respiratory disease
