Perio Protect is a doctor-prescribed and patient-applied method to treat chronic gum disease. When you receive your custom Perio Trays, Dr. Shiri will show you how to place a small amount of prescription medicine in each tray. You wear it for just minutes each day. Dr. Shiri will also design a treatment plan specifically for you, as the duration and frequency varies for each patient.
The trays are designed with a patented seal to place and hold medication where it is most effective — at the site of infection deep below the gum line. A low concentration of hydrogen peroxide gently and thoroughly cleanses the periodontal pockets, combatting bacteria, whiteningyour teeth and freshening your breath.
For some patients, the non-invasive Perio Trays reduce the need for surgical intervention. For others, it can be a potent compliment to traditional treatment methods, helping to ensure a more successful outcome.
While there is no “cure” for gum disease, it can be managed with Daily treatment to prevent pathogenic bacteria from recolonizing. When the desired results have been achieved, Dr. Shiri will revise your treatment plan to maintain the results.
The Perio Protect Method is an appealing, minimally-invasive option for advanced periodontitis and early-stage gum disease alike, potentially saving patients from gum surgery.
