Treat Gum Disease at Home with Perio Protect Custom Dental Trays
Gum (periodontal) disease is one of the leading causes of tooth loss in the U.S. An inflammatory infection that gradually destroys the bone and tissues supporting the teeth, gum disease often requires repeated scaling and root planing (SRP) treatments to prevent the regrowth of bacteria on the gums. However, studies show that even after removing half of the bacterial biofilm covering the gums with SRP treatments, this biofilm eventually returned with four times more bacteria populations.
Now, you can treat gum disease at home with Perio Protect custom dental trays provided by Dr. Yijia Li at A & S Dental Wellness Center of Leominster, Massachusetts. Perio Protect custom dental trays are created from impressions of your teeth and gums, so they always fit comfortably when you wear them. Delivering anti-bacterial medication to your gums and well below the gum line, these special dental trays can be worn at home while you fix supper, shower, or burn calories on your treadmill.
Actual Before And After Results
5 Great Benefits of Perio Protect Custom Dental Trays
- May eliminate the need for scaling and root planing every three to six months by putting gum disease in remission.
- Significantly reduces the risk of developing bacteremia infections due to oral bacteria infiltrating the bloodstream.
- Helps avoid the need for gum and bone grafting, pocket reduction, and other extensive gum surgery associated with prolonged gum disease.
- Reduces oral bacteria populations responsible for bad breath (halitosis).
In addition to promoting tooth decay, tooth loss, and potentially jaw deformities, untreated periodontal disease could put extra stress on your immune system. The more sources of infection and inflammation your immune system must fight against, the greater your risk of developing a chronic disease like diabetes or hypertension.
