How Can Perio Protect Trays® Treat Gum Disease?

3 Minute Read: 

Smiling woman with healthy teeth and good gum health.According to the National Institute of Dental and Craniofacial Research (NIDCR), periodontal (gum) disease is the number one cause of tooth loss. While gum disease is often preventable through proper oral hygiene and dental treatment options, many men and women experience problems with the disease.

One highly useful and recommended at-home option to treat and prevent gum disease is Perio Tray® therapy by Perio Protect. With diligence and proper commitment, this therapy can help prevent and control gum disease as it delivers antimicrobial medication to hard-to-reach places in the gum where infections are typically prevalent. 

What Is Perio Tray® Therapy, and Does It Require a Prescription?

Perio Tray® therapy is an at-home gum disease treatment that allows for the delivery of antimicrobial medication between dental visits that helps prevent and treat infections for lasting gum and tooth health. 

How Do I Use My Perio Protect Tray®?

To use a Perio Tray®, you will fill your tray with periogel medication. (Dr. Fiss can show you how much gel you need—a little goes a long way!) . 

You will wear your trays on the top and bottom teeth for one to four times a day, 10 to 15 minutes at a time. The length and frequency of your treatment will depend on the specifics of your gum health.

Perio Tray® therapy does require a prescription due to the medication it supplies to your gums. Since these trays are customized to fit your mouth, they should be comfortable but fit snug. This tight fit helps ensure that the medication goes directly into the gum line without escaping into your mouth.

With diligent use, there is a reduction of inflammation, bleeding while flossing and reduced pocket depths. You will enjoy healthier gums, cleaner teeth, and fresher breath.

Why Wouldn’t I Want a Perio Tray®?

Perio Tray® therapy is a revolutionary process that benefits every person who uses it. There is no downside to this product, and it is an essential choice for any person who wishes to uphold and maintain the health of their teeth and gums. 

Perio Tray® therapy offers what no other gum disease treatment can: real results without surgery or invasive techniques. This at-home product is easy to use, painless, and effective. You don’t need to have gum disease to reap the benefits of your Perio Tray®. Users commonly report how much healthier, cleaner, and fresher their gums and teeth look and feel. 

If you do suffer from gum disease, Perio Tray® therapy is a no-brainer. You can fight the infections in your gum line consistently from the comfort of your home. Take solace in knowing that you are not only helping to prevent your gum disease from worsening, but you are also continually fighting the infection.
