Perio Protect® in Springfield, PA

Restore Your Oral Health with Perio Protect® in Springfield

Tender, inflamed, or bleeding gums are an early indication of gum disease, which is also known as periodontal disease. Gum disease is the result of bacterial colonization on the surface of the teeth and in the periodontal pockets between the teeth and gums. If not treated, periodontal disease can lead to infections, tooth loss, and even affect your overall health.

Gum disease has traditionally been treated using invasive surgery to remove diseased tissue and treat the infection in the periodontal pockets, but that is changing. We are excited to offer a revolutionary treatment for gum disease called Perio Protect that can restore your gum health without the need for surgery. Schedule a consultation with one of our Perio Protect dentists today to learn about the Perio method.

How Does Perio Treatment Work?

Perio Protect is a customized gum disease treatment that uses patented trays to deliver medication directly to the affected areas. The medication contains a low concentration of hydrogen peroxide that kills bacteria, leaving you with clean gums, fresher breath, and whiter teeth. Perio Protect reviews show that the treatment can eliminate the need for surgery in most patients, or improve results if surgery is still needed.

Does Perio Protect Treatment Work Better Than Surgery?

Perio Protect offers a number of benefits over surgical gum disease treatment. Perio Protect is noninvasive, so there is no downtime or tooth sensitivity. Since no gum tissue is removed, there are no wounds that can become infected during the healing process. Perio Protect is also highly effective in removing the biofilm that serves as a breeding ground for the bacteria. In fact, the Perio system can prevent up to 90% of dangerous pathogens. Since the treatment can be done at home, it is ideal for preventing future bacteria buildup and recolonization.

Will Perio Protect Treatment Work with My Busy Schedule?

During your appointment, our dentist will show you how to use the trays to apply the medication yourself. This means that you can repeat the treatment in the comfort of your own home when it is convenient for you. There is no need to take time away from your work or family obligations to travel across town for multiple dental appointments.

What Is the Process for Getting Perio Protect in Springfield?

Our dentist will start by making an impression of your teeth. This mold is used to customize the trays to your exact treatment needs. The trays look similar to mouth guards and are designed to place the medication to where it is needed the most. Based on the severity of your gum disease, the dentist will advise you how often you need to wear the trays and for how long during each session.

What Kind of Perio Protect Results Can I Expect?

Most of our patients see a dramatic improvement in their gum health by wearing their trays for 10 to 15 minutes each day. In their Perio Protect reviews, patients give the treatment high marks for ease of use, convenience, and comfort. In addition to fresher breath and whiter teeth, managing your gum disease with Perio Protect can have long-term benefits for your overall health by preventing dangerous bacteria from entering your bloodstream where they can attack vital organs. Call today to learn more about the benefits of Perio Protect.

Are Your Perio Protect Dentists Certified?

Not all dentists are able to offer Perio Protect. The Perio system is relatively new, so some dentists are not even aware of the treatment. Before they can prescribe Perio Protect and teach patients how to use the system at home, our Perio Protect dentists are required to complete rigorous training and certification requirements.

Does Perio Protect Cost a Lot of Money?

Perio Protect is tailored to each patient’s needs, so the cost can fluctuate for each person. There is a separate cost for the trays, as well as the prescription medication. Your final Perio Protect cost will be based on the amount of medication needed and the number of your treatments. We will provide you with your estimated cost and go over your payment options following your initial consultation.

Will My Insurance Cover My Perio Protect Cost?

How much of your treatment cost is covered by your insurance depends on the specifics of your plan. Even individuals insured by the same company may have vastly different benefits. Before you schedule an appointment with one of our dentists, we recommend that you contact your insurer to verify your coverage. When speaking with them, be sure to ask if your plan includes benefits for insurance code D5994. Our staff is always happy to assist if you have trouble understanding your coverage.

Is Perio Protect in Springfield Right for Me?

Schedule a consultation with one of our dentists today to find out if your gum disease can be treated with Perio Protect. Even if your condition is too severe for Perio Protect alone, we will work with you to develop a treatment plan using a combination of Perio Protect and other techniques.
