Perio Protect Trays
Gum disease is caused by a bacterial infection that is hidden below your gums. Dental cleanings can effectively treat the bacteria, but when you return home the cycle often continues. Bacterial cells grow back in just hours after a cleaning, and toothbrush, rinse and floss can’t reach deep enough to address the infection at home.
The Perio Tray by Perio Protect gently applies medication deep under the gums to fight the infections. You can use it just about anywhere for as little as 15 minutes each day. The Tray is comfortable, flexible, and custom-fit precisely for your mouth.
With Perio Tray therapy, you have a new chance against the infections. In additional to healthier gums, patients commonly report whiter teeth and fresher breath. If you’ve been told that you have gum disease (gingivitis or periodontitis), ask our team if Perio Trays are right for you.
If you suffer from bone lose, severe periodontitis, and/or inflammation, we can provide Vibramycin Syrup to use with your perio tray protocol. Vibramycin Syrup contains doxycycline to help suppress the inflammatory response, and it is used as an antioxidant in the perio trays. The syrup also contains the sugar alcohol sorbitol as a sweetener to prolong the shelf life. The duration of treatment is case specific. This sub-therapeutic use of Vibramycin helps:
- decrease oxidative stress in the gum tissues
- decrease connective tissue breakdown
- decrease bone loss
- increase bone healing/repair
