Oral bacteria causing infections in gum tissue may threaten more than your teeth and gums. If you have been diagnosed with gum disease for example, pathogenic bacteria are likely forming colonies that cause localized inflammation and damage in your gum tissue. Those bacteria may enter the blood stream through small ulcers in your gum tissue.
Research Has Established Associations Between Oral Bacteria And Systemic Diseases Including:
- Type 2 Diabetes
- Heart Disease
- Respiratory Disease
- Blood Clots
- Preterm and Low Birth Weight Babies
- Chronic Inflammation
What Is Perio Protect?
Perio Protect is a comprehensive, customized treatment to help manage bacteria growing in the spaces or pockets between teeth and gum tissue. The overall goal of the Perio Protect treatment is to manage oral bacteria with minimally invasive dentistry for lasting oral health. Perio Protect combines a non-invasive chemical therapy with root planing and scaling to remove bacteria. The chemical therapy relies on the tray delivery of dentist-prescribed solutions to chemically remove bacteria from the periodontal pocket and alter the pocket’s microbiological environment to disrupt bacterial growth.
For most people following the Perio Protect gum treatment requires only minutes each day. Patients describe the tray delivery as comfortable and appreciate its non-invasive technology.
