Gum Disease Treatment:
Once a patient is diagnosed with gum disease (periodontitis or gingivitis), the standard treatment in most dental offices involves intensive cleaning of the teeth above and below the gum line, a repetitive practice (every 3 to 6 months) that often requires a local anesthetic. Severe cases can require expensive and invasive surgery. Many patients leave their disease untreated. Unfortunately, because the problem is hidden below the gums, it is easy to ignore.
Minimally invasive dentists want to treat gum disease with the most reliable and comfortable methods available for their patients. The company Perio Protect, LLC is a leader in minimally invasive dentistry, offering a patient centered method for gum disease treatment that is used by tens of thousands of dental professionals in the U.S. and Canada.
Periodontal disease treatment with the Perio Protect Method combines dental care performed by the dentist and hygienist with a non-invasive prescription tray delivery of medication below the gum line. Because the medication can be delivered by patients at home, patients have more control between office visits and the treatment becomes more of a team effort between the patient and their dental professional.
