Over half of all Americans are affected by periodontal or gum disease, which is caused by a bacterial infection that is hidden below your gums. If you’ve noticed bleeding while brushing or flossing, you may be one of many suffering with this disease. Even with regular dental cleanings, the cycle of gum disease often continues in between visits. This is because regular toothbrushes, floss and washes can’t reach deep enough to address the infection.
Without proper care, gum disease can lead to:
• Painful inflammation of gum tissue
• Dangerous infections
• Loss of otherwise healthy tooth structure
• Damage to the underlying bone and soft tissue in your mouth
• Diabetes or other serious diseases
Fortunately, we’ve found something that works wonders: The Perio Tray® by Perio Protect. The Perio Tray is used by gently applying medication to a customized tray, where it can access deep under the gums to fight infections. The tray is comfortable and flexible and takes only minutes each day.
In additional to healthier gums, our patients who have tried The Perio Tray are also reporting whiter teeth and fresher breath. The total results are wonderful – and knowing you have the freedom to control and reverse the disease in the comfort of your home in between visits is something we are extremely happy about.
