At-Home Gum Disease Treatment in Anchorage AK


PerioProtect: Fighting Gum Disease Just Got a Whole Lot Easier

Are your gums swollen, bleeding, or receding? Do you have bad breath, tooth mobility, or visible build-up on your teeth? If so, you likely have gum disease.

At the top-rated dental clinic in Anchorage AK, Huffman Family Dentistry, we can help eliminate gum disease before it causes irreversible damage to your smile with periodontal treatment in Anchorage AK.

Why Is It So Important To Treat Gum Disease?

  • Periodontal disease is the #1 cause of adult tooth loss.
  • Gum disease can complicate existing health problems.
  • Gum disease is correlated with diabetes, heart disease, stroke, obesity, and preterm labor.

For some patients, routine therapy isn’t enough. Based on the state of gum disease you are suffering, we may recommend using Perio Protect as part of your comprehensive periodontal treatment plan.

The PerioProtect Advantage

PerioProtect is a unique, one-of-a-kind treatment that patients use at home. It uses customized dental trays to apply prescription-strength medication formulated to fight gum disease right where it starts: under your gums. The trays are worn a few times a day so that the medication can be held in place for several minutes at a time. The reason it is so successful is that without the trays, our body’s own cleansing mechanisms would flush the medication away. PerioProtect keeps the maximum amount of medication right within the diseased gum pocket so that the infection can be eliminated even faster.

Get More Out of Your Gum Disease Therapy

Don’t risk losing your teeth to gum disease. With PerioProtect, you can limit the number of bacteria that develop between dental appointments.

With routine professional therapies and a PerioProtect program at home, Huffman Family Dentistry patients experience better treatment outcomes than patients without PerioProtect. To receive your customized treatment for managing gum disease, or to learn more, call us today or fill out our contact form. Learn about our restorative dentistry services.

We take preventing and treating gum disease very seriously with a variety of treatments.

Huffman Family Dentistry is an outstanding dental practice. My wife and I are always treated very well. The Dental hygenis who I see is a young lady named Whitney and she is outstanding. Both dentists in the practice are superb. We are fortunate to have found a dental practice that is so outstanding. I would highly recommend them to anyone looking for good Dentistry.

I just had my best ever dental appointment at Huffman Family Dentistry! I have extreme sensitivities to certain sounds and sensations, and the scraping of metal on my teeth is a combination of two of my worst issues. In all of my other appointments, I have cried in the chair, had meltdowns, and (at my best) had panic attacks that shook my body while they were working on my mouth. I recently saw a tiktok where someone had similar issues at the dentist, and they recommended asking for plastic tools instead of the standard metal. I immediately called up my dentist and asked if that would be an option for me, and they said that as long as I signed a waiver stating that I understood it wouldn’t be as effective as the metal tools, they could use those instead. I just came out of the appointment, and I did not have any sort of panic response whatsoever. I didn’t cry, I was only mildly uncomfortable, and I was able to keep my composure the entire time. The hygienist was quick and sympathetic, and every person was kind and helpful at every step. If you have issues with going to the dentist and that’s stopping you from going, please consider giving them a call and asking what non-traditional things can be done to help. Huffman Family Dentistry was incredible with me, and now I am not afraid to schedule my next appointment!
