How Does It Work?

When you come in for your first appointment, our dental team will fit you with a customized Perio Protect® trays. These trays are clear oral appliances that allow you to administer gum disease medication at home. With proper care your trays can last for years before they need to be replaced.

For most people, treatment time is just minutes per day. As healing occurs and conditions improve, dentists will modify your frequency and duration of usage, gradually decreasing patient usage until the infection is under control and the disease is well managed. You can then follow a home care maintenance schedule to keep the bacteria at bay.
