A new treatment for periodontal disease: the Perio Protect™ method.|
Perio Protect™ is a non invasive (non surgical) way to treat gum disease using an antimicrobial medicine compatible with the bodies’ natural defence to infection.
An initial consultation and examination is mandatory in addition to radiographs.
The medication is applied by you, the patient, for a few minutes every day by inserting custom made trays on the teeth (similar to mouthguards).
The trays are made only in certified laboratories; they must be custom made in accordance with the periodontal pocket distribution throughout the mouth. They fit over the teeth and deliver an antibacterial gel which kills the pathogens responsible for gum disease.
The treatment is painless! The length and cost of the treatment is determined by the severity of the gum infection (from 3 to 6 or even 9 months) and must be followed by maintenance using the same trays. In some cases, 2 or 3 sets of trays are necessary during the active treatment.
