Perio Protect

Alternative to expensive, painful periodontal (gum) surgery.  A state of the art, FDA approved periodontal disease treatment. 

Perio Protect® is a comprehensive method that is customized for individual patients to help manage biofilms, community of bacteria, growing in the spaces or pockets between teeth and gum tissue. The overall goal of the Perio Protect Method™ is to manage oral biofilm with minimally invasive dentistry for lasting oral health.

The Method combines a non-invasive chemical therapy with the mechanical debridement (removal) of biofilm. The chemical therapy relies on the tray delivery of doctor-prescribed solutions to chemically debride biofilm from the periodontal pocket and alter the pocket's microbiological environment to disrupt biofilm growth.

The standard cleaning procedures in dental offices (e.g. scaling and root planing) help remove plaque and tartar and help reduce bacteria, but unfortunately bacteria reproduce quickly and biofilms regenerate very easily, so it is difficult to control them between office visits.

With the Perio Protect Method, you can place prescribed solutions into periodontal pockets with an appropriately formed, customized dental tray between office visits to help manage biofilm. Although a dentist must choose the most appropriate solution for individual patients, the most commonly prescribed solution with the Method has oxidizing and oxygenating agents. Oxidizing agents debride (chemically remove) the slimy protective coating of a biofilm and its underlying layers and also cleanse the oral wounds. Oxygenating agents introduce oxygen into the anaerobic (oxygen depleted) periodontal environment, altering the environment so that harmful anaerobic bacteria can no longer survive.

Dr. Rathod  may choose to treat the oral wounds with the chemical debriding and cleansing agents before mechanical debriding procedures to help reduce bacterial populations and thus reduce the risk of introducing bacteria into the bloodstream during mechanical debridement.

For most people following the Perio Protect Method, the placement of prescribed solutions into a periodontal pocket via a customized prescription tray requires only minutes each day. Patients describe the tray delivery as comfortable and appreciate its non-invasive technology.

The actual combination of mechanical treatment, chemical therapies, and prescribed treatment plan is determined by Dr. Rathod evaluating your specific conditions.
