The American Academy of Periodontology warns a significant public health problem. They state that half of Americans suffer from gum disease. If left untreated, periodontal disease can lead to tooth loss. Research has shown that periodontal disease is associated with other chronic inflammatory diseases, such as diabetes and cardiovascular disease.
Treatment for periodontal disease includes deep scaling, antibiotics, and if condition advances despite of a non-surgical approach, periodontal surgery. We finally have a non-invasive treatment to help with maintaining oral health. The prescription Perio Tray® is customized for individual patients with an internal seal that helps place medication deep below the gums to manage bacteria that causes the disease.
When the Perio Tray administers medication into the deep pockets along your gum line, it is able to improve your gum health but, in the process, it also helps brighten your smile and freshen your breath. The harmful bacteria that break down your teeth and gums also cause foul odors. When you use the Perio Tray regularly to fight the bacteria, you’ll have fresher breath!
It is our goal to remain innovative and provide treatments that are easy to use and effective. We are excited to offer a treatment that will ensure our patients have an oral environment free of disease.
