Perio Protect: 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 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 Perio Protect Advantage
Perio Protect 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. Perio Protect keeps the maximum amount of medication right within the diseased gum pocket so that the infection can be eliminated even faster.
