Perio Protect® Antibiotic Gum Disease Treatments

The Perio Protect Method® is a comprehensive, minimally invasive treatment for gum disease, supported by advanced technology and validated by research.

Where Other Methods Fall Short While brushing, rinsing, and flossing are crucial, they often fall short of effectively targeting the deep-seated bacteria within the periodontal pockets, where they thrive.

Traditionally, addressing advanced gum disease has necessitated deep cleanings such as root planing and scaling, or surgical procedures to access the pockets.

Scaling typically involves numbing the gums, followed by the removal of bacteria through scraping and smoothing the tooth surface to prevent reattachment.

Surgery typically entails incisions to lift tissue and access the root surfaces, often requiring multiple visits. This can be a frustrating, painful process and may reintroduce harmful bacteria into fresh wounds.

Antibiotics are sometimes prescribed to combat bacteria, yielding promising immediate results, but often proving temporary. Overuse of antibiotics can compromise their long-term effectiveness.

The Perio Protect Method Perio Protect is prescribed by a dentist and applied by the patient. Custom Perio Trays™ are provided, and your dental team will instruct you on placing a small amount of prescription medicine in each tray, to be worn for a few minutes each day. We will tailor a treatment plan to your needs, as the duration and frequency vary for each patient.

These trays feature a patented seal to deliver medication precisely where it is most effective—deep within the gum line, targeting infection. A gentle hydrogen peroxide solution effectively cleanses the periodontal pockets, combating bacteria, enhancing tooth whiteness, and freshening breath.

For some patients, the non-invasive Perio Trays™ may reduce the need for surgical intervention, while for others, they can complement traditional treatments, increasing the likelihood of a successful outcome.

Although there is no definitive "cure" for gum disease, it can be effectively managed with daily treatment to prevent the recurrence of pathogenic bacteria. Once desired results are achieved, Our Office will adjust your treatment plan to maintain those results.

The Perio Protect Method offers an attractive, minimally invasive option for both advanced periodontitis and early-stage gum disease.
