Perio Protect Procedure
How does Perio Protect work?
First, we make a custom fit mold of the teeth. We do this during your first visit to our dental office. Next, we find the best solution, or medical cream, to cure your periodontal disease. Afterwards, we give you the solution and show you how to put it inside your teeth mold. Finally, we will instruct you to apply the solution via your teeth molds for prescribed number of weeks, depending on the severity of your case.
Facts on Perio Protect and Periodontal/Gum Disease
Perio Protect is an FDA-approved product that helps eliminate periodontal disease (gum disease and others). However, to truly cure gum disease, you need to take care of your gums and teeth properly on a routine basis. If do not take serious steps towards healthy oral hygiene, you will have to repeat this treatment in the future. At Assure a Smile dentistry, holistic dentist Dr. Ted Herrmann and his staff will educate you on proper gum care so that if you follow our instructions you will only need this treatment once.
Control Periodontal Disease
It is very important to protect yourself against periodontal/gum disease. The symptoms of gum disease are often so mild that most people don’t even realize they are suffering until they reach the dental chair. However, periodontal and gum disease can lead to cavities, root canals, and even heart disease. These procedures can be very costly and time consuming. We advise if you have gum disease to take care of it immediately by giving us a call.
