The Perio Tray® by Perio Protect: Non-Invasive Therapy for Gum Disease
Gum disease is caused by a bacterial infection that is hidden below your gums. Dental cleanings can effectively treat the bacteria, but when you return home the cycle often continues. Bacterial cells grow back in just hours after a cleaning, and toothbrush, rinse and floss can’t reach deep enough to address the infection at home.
Common Symptoms of Gum Disease:
- Bleeding gums when brushing or flossing
- Receding gums, making teeth appear longer
- Obvious plaque, tartar, or calculus
- Spaces developing between the teeth
- Swollen, red, or tender gums
- Persistent bad breath
- Sensitive teeth
- Loose or mobile teeth
What is the Perio Tray?
The prescription Perio Tray is for individual patients with an internal seal that helps place medication deep below the gums so that the medication can fight the infectious bacteria. You use it at home for just minutes each day. The Tray is comfortable, flexible, and custom-fit precisely for your mouth.
With Perio Tray therapy, you have a new chance against the infections. In additional to healthier gums, patients commonly report whiter teeth and fresher breath. If you’ve been told that you have gum disease (gingivitis or periodontitis), ask our team if Perio Trays are right for you.
Oral Bacteria Management for Healthy Gums
Due to oral bacteria mismanagement 47% of American adults have chronic gum disease known as periodontitis. Tens of millions more have gingivitis. Are you one of them? You can have gum disease and not know it because the disease is hard to see and because it doesn’t hurt until later stages.
So many people have gum disease because it is so hard to treat. The disease starts with biofilms (oral bacterial communities) that build up beneath the gum line where they can be impossible to reach with toothbrushes, floss, or mouthwash. Even dental professionals are unable to completely clean biofilm deep below the gums. Antibiotics may help temporarily, but the bacteria frequently return or build up resistances to the antibiotics and the disease cycle continues.
If you struggle against periodontal disease, it’s time to consider a better oral bacteria management technique – a gum disease treatment that actually reduces the bacterial infections and keeps them in check over time. With the Perio Tray®, you can effectively deliver medication to modify and reduce biofilms on a daily basis for better, long-term disease management. Managing the micro-environment (oral bacteria) is key to healthy gums, and delivering the medicine is now easier and more efficient with the thanks to Perio Protect.
