Is there a way to help my gum disease without gum surgery?
If you are suffering from gum disease but are reluctant to resort to surgical treatment, we may have the solution you are looking for. Perio Protect is the most effective way to deliver antibacterial medication to the pockets around your teeth on a daily basis.
In many cases, this antibacterial treatment can minimize or even eliminate the need for gum surgery. Perio Protect consists of a specially prescribed antibiotic gel that is applied to your gums through a custom-molded set of trays. This method, used for 15 minutes per day as you multitask (shower, make breakfast, check email), gives great results and is an FDA-approved medical device. We have helped patients avoid an invasive and costly periodontal surgery through daily use of Perio Protect.
Many patients are delighted to discover that their teeth get whiter, too! If you are interested in a non-surgical treatment option for gum disease or have other questions about the Perio Protect treatment process, contact our Edina dental office to schedule a consultation.
