Gum disease is an infection of the structures around the teeth and can be reversed with non-surgical treatments, such as PerioProtect. perioprotectGentle Dentistry in Haworth, NJ, offers the minimally invasive PerioProtect Method to their patients. Here's everything you need to know about PerioProtect.

What is PerioProtect?

Gum disease is caused by bacteria that collect in the pockets around your teeth. The PerioProtect Method is an effective approach to treat bacteria that cause periodontal disease. The PerioProtect Method includes a specially designed tray that is custom made for your mouth so that medication can be placed into the periodontal pockets where the infection is localized. The design of the tray prevents the medication from being washed away.

The Benefits of PerioProtect

The Perio Tray delivers medication below the gums to fight the bacteria that cause gum disease. When patients use the tray at home, they are able to reduce the bacteria, bleeding and inflammation. The Perio Tray also helps brighten your smile and freshen your breath. The PerioProtect Method is an easy, comfortable and very effective option when used as directed by your Haworth dentist.

The Risks of Gum Disease

Gum disease is a progressive disorder that if left untreated will worsen over time. As the infection aggressively attacks teeth and soft tissues, it will ultimately spread to bone. If left untreated, it can lead to further complications, such as gum abscesses, deterioration of bone structure, loose teeth and tooth loss. Gum disease may also increase your risk of all kinds of other health complications, including diabetes, stroke and heart disease.
