Some estimates from the Centers for Disease Control state at least 47 percent of adults over 30 have some level of gum disease in the United States. While getting regular dental cleanings in Sioux Falls, SD, can deter gum disease, prolonged neglect can lead to problems. Perio Protect involves using a state-of-the-art treatment tray to help medication for gum disease get into the gum tissue to truly target the problem.
HOW PERIO TRAY THERAPY WORKS
A Perio Tray is a custom-designed tray that is made to conform to the shape of your teeth and gums. Patients are given the tray to use at home on their own every day for a predetermined length of time. Medication is also provided for the patient to add to the tray according to the dentist’s recommendations. The tray delivers low-dose hydrogen peroxide to the gum tissue and beneath the teeth, which can help thwart the bacteria that cause gum disease.
