During every visit with us, we carefully monitor your dental health. Often we will ask you about your general health and overall well-being. The oral cavity is a gateway to your body, a healthy mouth helps keep a healthy body. Being aware of a patient's general health is important to us. Knowing risk factors such as Heart Disease, Respiratory Disease, Diabetes, Stroke, Cancer, and Gum Disease, can help us provide the best treatment options for you.
Our practice is proud to offer the latest technologies for patient care and comfort. We introduce to you Perio Protect, a non-invasive Gum Therapy Treatment. With Perio Protect we are able to give you tools to help your body fight gum disease.
Gum disease is caused by a bacterial infection that is hidden below your gums. Dental cleanings can effectively treat the bacteria, but when you return home the cycle often continues. Bacterial cells grow back in just hours after the cleaning, and a toothbrush, rinse and floss can't reach deep enough to address the infection at home.
The Perio Tray by Perio Protect gently applies medication deep under the gums to fight the infections. You use it at home for just minutes a day. The tray is comfortable, flexible, and custom-fit precisely for your mouth.
With Perio Tray Therapy, you have a new chance against the infections. In addition to healthier gums, patients commonly report whiter teeth and fresher breath. If you have been told that you have gum disease (gingivitis or periodontitis), ask our team if Perio Trays are right for you.
