Periodontal (gum) disease affects millions of patients in the United States each year. It can be hard to maintain an effective oral hygiene routine each day with fast-paced and changing schedules. Henry Bowman and his experienced team are focused on educating patients on practical ways they can improve their oral health. One such method is known as PerioProtect. This is an at-home product that can be used for patients affected by gum disease. Continue reading on to learn more about this product and see how it could transform your smile.
PerioProtect is a unique product as it is used each and every day in the comfort of the patient’s own home and during whatever convenient time works best for them. This leaves no excuse not to have a healthier smile with the help of our team!
There are other methods available for gum disease treatments, such as scaling and root planing. This involves removing the plaque and tartar from below the gum line as well as smoothing out the tooth roots in order to avoid buildup. This does still put the patient at risk for acquiring gum disease again if they do not change their oral health habits. However, PerioProtect involves placing the medication directly onto the damaged gum tissue and lowers the risk for reinfection.
PerioProtect involves using custom-made application trays for each patient, allowing the medication to be directly placed in the affected area. Our team can provide treatments based on each individual patient’s needs in order to provide them with the perfect treatment plan. PerioProtect helps to reduce the number of harmful oral bacteria while helping to eliminate the buildup of plaque and tartar.
