Perio Trays

Benefits of Perio Trays

Infected gums have a direct entry point to your bloodstream. Chronic infection also increases the inflammatory burden on your body. Studies have traced pathogens that lead to gum disease to the same pathogens known to cause other systemic inflammation and illness. Gum disease is a source of chronic inflammation that taxes your immune system. 

The more sources of inflammation you have, the greater the risk you have for heart disease, type 2 diabetes, respiratory disease, inflammatory driven dementia and Alzheimer’s disease, colorectal cancer, pre-term births and low birth-weight babies. Talk to your doctor today or find a provider below to get your gums healthy with Perio Tray™ therapy from Perio Protect.

Perio Trays in Tomball, TX

Gum disease is caused by a bacterial infection hidden below your gums. Dental cleanings can effectively remove the bacteria, but the bacteria re-populate almost immediately and the infectious cycle continues. It’s important to keep brushing and flossing, but toothbrush, rinse and floss just can’t reach deep enough to address infections below your gums.

 The Perio Tray® by Perio Protect gently applies medication deep under the gums to fight the infections and prevent their recurrence. You use it at home for just minutes each day. The Tray is comfortable, flexible, and custom-fit precisely for your mouth.

It is important to treat active infections. Almost half of American adults have chronic periodontitis, an advanced form of gum disease that taxes the immune system and may make it harder for your body to fight off other infectious challenges. Infections in your gums may also contribute to other chronic health problems like arterial inflammation.

Not only does Perio Tray® therapy help improve your health, it can also help you smile with more confidence. Patients using Perio Trays® report whiter teeth and fresher breath. Chronic bad breath often signals chronic gum disease. Address the disease and freshen your breath.

If you’ve been told that you have gum disease (gingivitis or periodontitis), ask our team if Perio Trays® are right for you.   

Where Other Methods Fall Short

Brushing, rinsing and flossing are important. But these efforts fail to reach deep below the gum line where bacteria thrive—in the periodontal pockets.

Traditionally, deep cleanings, known as root planing and scaling, or surgery have been required to reach deep into the pockets to treat advanced gum disease. Scaling involves numbing the gums and scraping the tooth surface to remove bacteria, which quickly repopulates. Surgery traditionally requires cutting the tissues to lift a flap to be able to clean the root surfaces.

Antibiotics are sometimes prescribed to fight bacteria. Immediate results can be promising, but they are often only temporary. And over-prescription of antibiotics can compromise the efficacy of the drug and also cause significant side effects like C. diff.

Perio Tray™ Therapy

Perio Protect homecare is doctor-prescribed and patient-applied. When you receive your custom Perio Tray™, your dental team will show you how to place a small amount of prescription medicine in each tray. You wear it for just minutes each day. Your dentist will also design a treatment plan specifically for you, as the duration and frequency varies for each patient.

The trays are designed with a patented seal to place and hold medication where it is most effective—at the site of infection deep below the gums. A low concentration of hydrogen peroxide gently and thoroughly cleanses the periodontal pockets, combatting bacteria, whitening your teeth and freshening your breath.

Non-invasive Perio Tray™ therapy compliments in-office treatment, supporting more successful outcomes for long-term health.

While there is no “cure” for gum disease, it can be managed with daily treatment to prevent pathogenic bacteria from recolonizing. When the desired results have been achieved, your dentist will revise your treatment plan to maintain the results.

The Perio Protect Method is an appealing, minimally invasive option for patients with gingivitis and chronic periodontitis. It also keeps the gums healthy around crowns and implants for optimal restorative care with long lasting results.
