Cutting-Edge Treatment: Perio Protect
Use Perio Protect to treat gum disease easier than ever before with Kenmore Dental’s team of leading dentists in the Kenmore, WA region.
Perio Protect uses chemical therapy to help patients eliminate bacteria biofilms that grow in the spaces between teeth and gums. This treatment method presents a noninvasive way for patients of all ages to combat gum disease.
Perio Protect combines several techniques that treat infected areas of the mouth. Read on to learn more about the treatment and how it could help you manage your periodontal disease.
How Does Perio Protect Work?
Perio Protect combines a non-invasive chemical debriding therapy with traditional mechanical debridement procedures. “Debriding” refers to the process in which our dentists remove the bacteria from your teeth. The chemical therapy consists of a series of Perio Trays that you use to get prescribed solutions to infected areas.
While brushing and flossing will get you a long way, your toothbrush’s bristles don’t do a great job cleaning your gums. Almost 80% of Americans suffer from gum disease at some point, and when they do, they should look to Perio Protect to solve their dental problems.
Perio Protect for Gum Disease
As the name suggests, Perio Protect sees frequent use in treating periodontal disease. Gum disease can arise due to several factors, including:
- Genetic predisposition
- Poor oral hygiene habits
- Unique oral bacteria to your mouth
Untreated gum disease can lead to red, swollen, or bleeding gums and potentially cause bone damage and tooth loss. Worse still, gum disease raises your chance of stroke, heart disease, diabetes, and more severe health problems.
When we spot periodontal disease during a regular checkup, we will likely prescribe the noninvasive, at-home treatment, Perio Protect. Fill the Perio Protect tray with the peroxide gel and wear them for a small amount of time each day. These solutions typically have oxidizing and oxygenating agents, allowing Perio Protect to eradicate bacterial growth.
There’s no reason to be scared with such a simple solution, especially with a comfortable and innocuous treatment plan.
If you think you’re exhibiting signs of gum disease, don’t wait. The longer you go without a checkup, the worse the condition will become. So call Kenmore Dental for a screening checkup today.
Perio Protect for Whitening Teeth
The solution you use to treat gum disease has the dual effect of whitening teeth. This is partly due to Perio Protect sharing an active ingredient with an array of whitening treatments.
Simply wearing Perio Protect as recommended for a few weeks will give you noticeable results. Likewise, because you can keep the trays after the treatment plan ends, you can continue to whiten your teeth as needed. Doing so will help keep your teeth protected against gum disease onset.
How to Determine If Perio Protect Is Right for You
Contact our office if you think you could benefit from Perio Protect. Dr. Priya Sridhar, DMD, and Dr. Michael J. Conway, DDS, can give you a thorough dental exam, scanning the inside of your mouth for gum and tooth structure. If they notice a problem, they’ll discuss your options for a treatment plan with you.
The chances are that if your results come back positive for gum disease, you have the option to begin Perio Protect.
