Perio Protect uses science to gently, predictably and effectively reduce the bacteria that causes the inflammation related to gum disease. Perio Protect is perfect for patients struggling with controlling gum disease, for those who would like to reduce swelling in their gums before their first hygiene appointment, and for non-surgical options to treating periodontal disease.
Perio Protect works by delivering a safe, specifically formulated gel that oxygenates the bacteria inside the pockets between your teeth and gums. These pockets are where the bacteria that causes gum disease thrives, resulting in inflammation and bone loss, and in some cases eventually tooth loss. The bacteria that cause gum disease are anaerobic bacteria, meaning they live best in an environment without oxygen. By the Perio Trays gently pushing the Perio Gel into the pockets around your teeth, the bacteria are gently killed by the oxygen without harmful side effects to you.
The science of oxygenation to control bacteria has decades of research behind it. Perio Protect has been approved for the treatment of gum disease by the FDA in the USA since 2004.
Depending on your goals and stage of treatment, you might wear the trays anywhere from 1-2 times per day for 15 minutes each. This is pretty easy to incorporate into your routine while showering, watching TV, or while doing laundry or other chores.
