What are PerioProtect trays for gum disease?
PerioProtect trays are custom trays that fit over existing teeth to deliver therapeutic levels of antiseptic directly into the areas between teeth beneath the gum line. They are made from a thin impression of your teeth and gums. They are used along with special medication that delivers medicine directly where it is needed to fight the infection associated with periodontal disease.
What is involved in using PerioProtect trays?
The initial appointment involves taking impressions of your gums and teeth, used to fabricate the customized trays. Our team will educate you on using the trays while also providing instructions on best maintaining good oral hygiene at home.
