A Breakthrough in Dental Care for Periodontal Health that may also whiten your teeth
Maintaining optimal oral health goes beyond brushing and flossing. For individuals with periodontal disease, a comprehensive approach is required to combat the condition effectively.
The Perio Protect Method is a groundbreaking dental technique that offers a minimally invasive and highly efficient way to address gum disease. In this blog post, we will explore the benefits, process, and advantages of the Perio Protect Method in promoting healthy gums and improving overall oral well-being.
The Most Convenient At-Home Method Against Gum Disease
Perio Protect is a comprehensive approach to gum disease which combines dental cleanings with the comfortable Perio Tray® delivery of medication that patients use at home between office visits.
The Perio Tray® is similar to a mouth-guard, but it has a special sealing system to deliver medication below the gums.
Place the medication in the tray and wear it for a few minutes a day. The medication fights the infections. It’s that easy!
The Perio Protect approach may uniquely add more effective home-care. Bacteria that cause inflammation and disease are hidden deep below the gums and are extremely difficult to manage at home with toothbrushes, rinses, and floss.
The Perio Tray is able to reach deep into the pockets between the teeth and gums, applying medication to infected gum tissue that cannot be reached using toothbrushes, dental floss, or mouthwashes.
A Compounding Pharmacy’s Support and Personal Experience
ScriptWorks has been working with Perio Protect doctors for over 12 years. Back in 2011, I visited the practice of Dr. Duane Keller in St. Louis, Missouri. Dr. Keller explained how difficult it is to treat periodontal disease. With an electron microscope, he showed me how the mouth, particularly the gum line, is lined with bacteria.
ScriptWorks carries the Perio dental gel that is applied into the dental trays. We also make compounds of dye-free antibiotics like Doxycycline that can be added to the Perio dental gel in the trays to enhance overall effectiveness.
My personal experience is that, when using these trays filled with gel daily while showering, I have reduced my gum pockets significantly so that I no longer have any gum pockets deeper than 2s or 3s. The one side effect I have observed is that it whitens my teeth!
Potential Benefits of the Perio Protect Method
Enhanced Gum Health
The Perio Protect Method provides targeted solutions for gum disease, reaching deep into the periodontal pockets and reducing bacteria and inflammation. It helps to promote healing and supports gum tissue regeneration.
Unlike surgical interventions, the Perio Protect Method is non-invasive, making it an attractive option for patients seeking a less aggressive approach. It offers a comfortable and convenient at-home health experience.
Improved Oral Hygiene
The custom-fitted trays used in the method also serve as a barrier, preventing saliva dilution and ensuring the medication stays in direct contact with the gums.
The Perio Protect Method is not a one-time deal. By incorporating it into your regular oral hygiene routine, you help to maintain healthier gums over the long term, potentially reducing the risk of gum disease progression and complications.
The Most Trusted Compounding Pharmacy in the East Bay
The Perio Protect Method offers an innovative and patient-friendly approach to managing and addressing gum disease by killing the bacteria along the gum line. It not only makes your mouth feel clean but it may whiten teeth as well.
