Perio Protect – A Non-Invasive Therapy for Gum Disease

Treating gum disease generally centers around controlling the infection. The traditional method involved scraping the diseased gum tissue, which isn’t exactly a comfortable experience, and the procedure could require several visits.

However, bacterial cells can grow back after a cleaning, and the normal at-home routines or brushing rinsing and flossing don’t always get deep enough to ensure the best possible results.

Perio Protect, however, is an effective, non-invasive approach to treating gum disease. It combines a powerful cleaning agent with a custom tray to hold the solution in place to fight against the gum disease.

How Perio Protect Works

The Perio Protect system uses an oral debriding agent in a tray that is customized to fit your mouth. The tray holds a special medication in place where it can work its way deep under the gums to fight the bacterial growth. Since the cleaning agent is held against the gum pockets, it can lead to better results that debridement and scaling alone.

Your first cleaning will happen in the office, but it is something that you can continue at home. It just requires a couple minutes each day with this comfortable, flexible tray and powerful cleaning solution.

At your appointment, Dr. Godes will fit you with your custom set of Perio Protect trays which you will take home to continue your treatment. You will also receive the hydrogen peroxide gel that will help you fight against gum disease.

How Perio Protects Fights Gum Disease

Gum disease is a serious condition that millions of people face every day. In fact, according to a study by the CDC, nearly one out of every two Americans over the age of 30 has mild, moderate, or severe periodontitis.

Gum disease is an inflammatory disease that is caused by the bacteria that lives in our mouths and causes plaque and tartar buildup. If that buildup isn’t stopped in time, it can lead to gingivitis and periodontitis, which can harm the gum tissue and the bone that supports the teeth.

The most common symptoms include red, swollen, and tender gums that have a tendency to bleed or recede. You may also notice loose or sensitive teeth as well as pain while chewing.

It’s time to get proactive about the health of your gums. Talk to us today to learn more about the Perio Protect system.

Testimonials

“My husband and I both cannot imagine going to another dentist than Dr. Stacy Godes. She is truly extraordinary. We live in the Bay Area, and though there are a plethora of medical professionals (including holistic professionals) in the SF Bay, we are so happy with the experiences that we have had with Dr. Godes that we cannot imagine going to someone else. It goes without saying that she is a fantastic dentist. Couple that with her holistic knowledge, integrity, and intuition (how often do you compliment a dentist's intuition??) and it's obvious what a true gem she is. Not only have we experienced the standard dental appointments (cleaning, Xrays, etc), but I have had her remove and replace my amalgam fillings and some old crowns. I also had her extract a root canal. I felt significantly better RIGHT AWAY after each of these procedures and I 100% believe that Dr. Godes is so skilled that they could not have gone better with anyone else. You could not be in better, safer, more knowledgeable, or more competent hands. She is very knowledgeable about diet/nutrition and other aspects of health as well--a truly holistic doctor.”
