Leominster, MA patients can address the periodontal disease with the PerioProtect treatment method
Periodontal disease, also more well-known as gum disease, is an infection in the mouth that can become a severe problem. Bacteria cause periodontal disease in the smile that starts an infection in the soft gum tissues. Without diagnosis and treatment, the condition can become relatively severe and result in the loss of gum tissue, jawbone, and natural teeth. At A & S Dental Wellness Center of Leominster in Leominster, MA, Dr. Lana Lee and her team encourage patients to visit regularly and maintain good oral health habits to prevent periodontal disease from occurring. However, if it does, treatment such as PerioProtect can help.
What is PerioProtect?
The PerioProtect method of addressing periodontal disease is a simple way to bring the smile back to health and control the infection. This particular method of PerioProtect uses trays and medication that are worn for a specific period each day. The medication in the trays attacks the infection at the source. PerioProtect may be used in conjunction with other therapies such as antibiotics and scaling and root planning performed by the dentist at A & S Dental Wellness Center of Leominster.
How much does PerioProtect cost?
To determine if the PerioProtect trays therapy is right for you, patients will first need an evaluation with Dr. Lana Lee to determine if periodontal disease is present. If it is, patients will then work with their dentist to find out about the cost and use of the PerioProtect system. The price will vary between patients depending on the stage at which their condition has reached and if they have a dental insurance plan that offers benefits to the cost of treatment.
