How Does Perio Protect® Work?

The primary objective of Perio Protect treatment is to effectively manage biofilms, or the communities of oral bacteria that cause infection and decay. Oral bacteria are known to grow along the gum line, specifically within the pockets and spaces that naturally occur between teeth and gums. Perio Protect is designed to zero-in on communities of oral bacteria, delivering a steady supply of unique oxidizing agents that kills bacteria and nurtures the gums. Here’s how it works:

  1. First, impressions are taken to create Perio Protect trays.
  2. Patients are then prescribed a special solution of oxidizing and oxygenating agents that is to be used in conjunction with the Perio Protect trays.
  3. Next, a manual debriding procedure is conducted in the office. This procedure gently removes biofilm from the periodontal pocket surrounding the teeth.
  4. Following manual debridement, patients are instructed on how line the Perio Protect solution along the perimeter of the trays so they can be worn for a prescribed period of time at home.
  5. Depending on your case, you will be instructed on how often to wear your Perio Protect trays at home.
