The Perio Protect Method® is an effective, sensible approach to treat bacteria that cause gum disease. At the heart of the Method is the adjunctive Perio Tray® delivery of medication. The basic idea is to get medication under the gums and into the pockets where bacteria grow and keep the medication there long enough to kill the bad bacteria, all in a comfortable, non-invasive way. Not a simple task. That’s why the Perio Tray is such an important advancement.
The Perio Tray is easy to use. You put the medication into the trays, wear the trays at home as instructed by your dentist and, well, that’s it, until you return to the dentist for a recall visit. It’s comfortable, it works well, and it’s convenient. The Perio Protect Method’s combination of Perio Tray delivery with thorough cleanings from your hygienist at Wanlass Dental is the least invasive approach available, and research shows better results than cleaning alone.
Gum disease is caused by a bacterial infection that is hidden below your gums. Dental cleanings can effectively reduce the bacteria, but when you return home the cycle often continues. Bacterial cells can grow back in just hours after a cleaning; toothbrush, rinse, and floss can’t reach deep enough to address the infection at home.
The Perio Tray by Perio Protect gently applies medication deep under the gums to fight the infections. You use it at home for just minutes each day. The Tray is comfortable, flexible, and custom-fit precisely for your mouth.
With Perio Tray therapy, you have a new chance against the infections. In addition to healthier gums, patients commonly report whiter teeth and fresher breath. If you’ve been told that you have gum disease (gingivitis or periodontitis), ask the Wanlass Dental clinical team if Perio Trays are right for you.
