Perio Protect is a revolutionary new method to treat most periodontal disease (also known as gum disease, gingivitis or periodontitis) using an FDA-cleared medical device to deliver dentist-prescribed medications directly to the source of the infection.
It is painless and easy, with years of reliable and proven clinical results. Available only through dentists certified by Perio Protect®, custom Perio Trays™ are fabricated to fit precisely over your teeth and gum tissue with special seals that direct medication to the site of the infection and maintain it there for a sufficient frequency and duration to treat the disease effectively. For most patients, this amounts to minutes each day. As healing occurs and your conditions improve, your dentist will modify the frequency and duration of usage, gradually decreasing your usage until the disease is under control and you follow a homecare maintenance schedule to keep the disease at bay.
Perio Trays® were cleared by the FDA in 2004 with the intended use to place solutions of the clinician’s choice into gingival crevices or periodontal pockets, the space that can develop between teeth and gum tissues when gum disease is present. Dentists may prescribe Perio Trays® when medications placed into the periodontal pocket could benefit a patient’s oral health.
A Perio Tray® is uniquely designed to fit each patient precisely. An impression of your mouth will be taken and sent with a prescription to a specialized dental laboratory for custom fabrication. Patients will receive detailed usage instructions based on their individual needs. For most people, the Perio Tray® is used for only minutes each day. Patients describe the Perio Tray® as comfortable, convenient, and easy to use. They especially appreciate its non-invasive technology.
