Perio Protect® in Springfield, MA
What Is Perio Protect?
The Perio Protect Method™ is a nonsurgical periodontal disease treatment developed for patients with gum (periodontal) problems. Made for home-based use, the approach works through a personalized, patented Perio Tray™ complete with a specialized sealing system. The mouth tray fits securely over the teeth to transport a prescription hydrogen peroxide medication deep beneath the gums. The gel-based formula targets destructive, pathogenic bacteria to enhance gum health and help prevent the progression of gum disease. Perio Protect may be recommended as a complement to other periodontal disease therapies or if additional options are ineffective. To learn more about this treatment or to get in touch with a dentist who offers Perio Protect in Springfield, MA, please reach out to PeoplesDental today.
Am I a Candidate for the Perio Protect Method?
Perio Protect offers a comfortable, easy-to-use, and self-administered approach to treating periodontal conditions from the convenience of your home. Ideal patients for this method of care usually involve:
- Individuals diagnosed with gingivitis or periodontitis
- Individuals who have had or are undergoing gum disease therapy (scaling and root planing or osseous surgery)
Periodontal problems may affect your dental and general health in many ways. It can result in tooth loss and concerning medical conditions if neglected. Some of the more common signs and symptoms of periodontal disease are:
- Malodorous breath
- Bleeding gums while brushing or flossing
- A receding gumline
- Tooth mobility
- Swollen or tender gum tissue
Should you experience any indication of gum concerns, please inform our dental team so we can determine if Perio Protect can help meet your needs.
How Does Perio Protect Work?
To begin the Perio Protect process, our staff will take impressions of your top and bottom teeth. These molds will be delivered to the Perio Protect lab, where your Perio Trays will be custom-crafted for an exact fit. When your trays arrive at our office, we will have you return to try them in and review your custom treatment strategy. Our staff will show you how to place a small quantity of Perio Protect formula in the trays and position them in your mouth. It is important to use your treatment as advised by our providers, which could initially include wearing them for 10 – 15 minutes, 2 – 3 times a day. Follow-up appointments may be scheduled at our Springfield, MA dental office so we can monitor your treatment progress and assess your gum health.
Very nice and comfortable 👌
We have had excellent service. My Grandson had a root canal yesterday and there's no complaints
Dawn and Dr. Soares are the best! Super friendly and kind.
Experience there for the first time was great I was greeted by Julie at the front desk with a voice to light up anyone’s day and Dawn was very professional, as well made the process a bit easier with communicating with me. I would recommend anyone to go here .
Dawn is great, especially, with me…a very fearful dental patient! She had big shoes to fill, following Randi and Odessa, but she does not disappoint, she is great!!!!
What Can I Expect After Using Perio Protect?
Our dental team will discuss the length of time and how often you should use the Perio Protect system. After treatment, many patients notice a reduction in bleeding and gumline inflammation, improved periodontal pocket depths, and a healthier oral environment. As an added benefit, the Perio Protect gel helps lighten teeth and gives you fresher breath. Keeping up with daily brushing, flossing practices, and regular dental visits are essential for obtaining the best possible treatment outcomes for your periodontal condition.
