How to treat periodontal disease
Created on June 15, 2020
Patients who have been diagnosed with periodontal disease may not be aware of the many treatments offered today. The dentists at Taylor Street Dental in Springfield, MA offer traditional therapies to help address the infection, including deep cleanings, antibiotics, and scaling and root planing. However, there’s another option for patients to consider: Perio Protect.
What is Perio Protect?
Perio Protect is a revolutionary way for patients to treat their condition at home between dental visits. The Perio Protect system works with a customized tray that is made based off impressions of a patient’s smile. These trays are used with a special medication gel that is administered into the trays and worn for a specific period of time each day. This medication will combat the infection directly at the source, ensuring a non-invasive, non-surgical solution to periodontal disease. The medication used with the trays has been cleared by the FDA as safe and effective, ensuring patients are making progress with their condition during the time in between their visits to Taylor Street Dental.
Why choose Perio Protect?
In addition to professional services available at the practice, patients need to take the steps necessary to protect their smile in between appointments. The Perio Protect system is east to use and perform at home, giving patients the power to fight gum disease along with routine brushing and flossing. Because Perio Protect is so easy to use, patients are often compliant with treatment and return to their dental visits with more progress than those who use brushing and flossing alone to keep their smile healthy. Our dentists believe that by using Perio Protect, patients are taking a proactive approach to their dental health and wellness.
