Gum disease is commonly treated with professional dental cleanings that physically remove the bacteria. Perio Protect is a comprehensive approach to gum disease treatment. This approach combines dental cleanings with the use of Perio Protect trays. Bacteria that cause inflammation and disease are hidden deep below the gums and are extremely difficult to manage at home with just toothbrushes, rinses and floss. The Perio Tray is able to reach deep into the pockets between the teeth and gums, applying medication to infected gum tissue that cannot be reached using toothbrushes, dental floss, or mouthwashes.

Periodontal disease is a serious gum infection that damages gums and can destroy the jawbone. According to the CDC 47% of Americans are affected by Periodontal disease. Periodontal disease is usually caused by poor oral hygiene and can lead to tooth loss and increased risks for heart and lung diseases. Symptoms can include swollen, red, and tender gums. It is important to know that with proper oral hygiene, many oral diseases and infections can be prevented.
Cavities are known as permanently damaged areas on the hard surface of your teeth that develop into tiny openings or holes. Cavities, also called tooth decay or caries, are caused by a combination of factors, including bacteria in your mouth, frequent snacking, sipping sugary drinks and not brushing or flossing well. Tooth decay can be prevented in many ways, such as: brushing at least twice a day with a fluoride tooth paste, flossing at least once a day, switching to a healthier diet, cutting out sugary drinks and making it to your regular dental appointments.
Bruxism is known as excessive grinding of the teeth or clenching of the jaw. Some people may experience headaches, jaw pain, tooth pain, or dental problems.
