Perio Protect® in Avon, CT

What Is Perio Protect?

The Perio Protect Method™ is a minimally invasive gum disease solution used for individuals dealing with gum (periodontal) problems. Designed for use at home, the approach works with a personalized, patented Perio Tray™ containing a specialized seal. The mouth tray fits snugly over the teeth to transport a prescribed hydrogen peroxide gel down below the gums. The gel treats harmful, pathogenic bacteria to elevate gum wellness and help halt the development of periodontal disease. Perio Protect might be recommended in conjunction with additional gum disease therapies or if alternative treatments have not been effective. To discover more about this solution or to connect with a dentist who offers Perio Protect in Avon, CT, please contact Avon Dental Group today.

Am I a Candidate for the Perio Protect Method?

Perio Protect provides a comfortable, reliable, and simple method to address periodontal concerns within the comfort of your own home. Ideal candidates for this care plan usually are:

  • Patients dealing with periodontitis or gingivitis
  • Patients who have undergone or are experiencing gum disease care (pocket reduction surgery or scaling and root planing)

Gum problems could alter your dental and total wellness in a variety of ways and can cause tooth loss and other serious health risks if neglected. A handful of the most frequent markers and symptoms of gum disease include:

  • Swollen or painful gums
  • Receding gums
  • Gums that bleed when flossing or brushing
  • Tooth movement
  • Malodorous breath

Should you experience any signs or symptoms of gum problems, don't hesitate to let our dental staff know so we can decide whether the Perio Protect system is a good choice for your oral health needs.

How Does Perio Protect Work?

When starting Perio Protect, our team will make molds of your top and bottom teeth. These molds will be sent to the Perio Protect lab, where your Perio Trays are custom-created for a precise fit. When your trays arrive at our facility, we will arrange a follow-up appointment to try them on and review your personalized treatment plan. Our staff will teach you how to place a small quantity of Perio Protect medicine in the trays and position them in place. It is important to use your trays as directed by our team, which will at first include wearing them for 10 – 15 minutes, 2 – 3 times a day. Supplemental visits may be arranged at our Avon, CT dental office so we can watch your therapy advancement and gum health.

Went in recently for a cleaning with Stacie and she was fantastic. The cleaning was pain-free no prodding of the gums with tools, which I really appreciated. I highly recommend her and look forward to future cleanings. Thanks, Stacie John
