Noninvasive Gum Disease Treatment with Perio Protect® in Collingdale

You can develop gum disease, also known as periodontal disease, when bacteria colonize on your teeth and in the periodontal pockets between the teeth and gums. Common symptoms of periodontal disease include tenderness, bleeding gums, and infections. If not treated, periodontal disease can lead to tooth loss, as well as other health problems. In extreme cases, the bacteria that cause gum disease can enter the bloodstream and cause damage to your vital organs.

Surgery to remove the diseased tissue and treat the pockets of infection has been the primary method of treating gum disease. Perio Protect is an effective gum disease treatment that can save your teeth and improve your oral health without the need for surgery. If you have been diagnosed with periodontal disease, call today to schedule a consultation with one of our Perio Protect dentists.

What Makes Perio Treatment Different?

Perio Protect is a comprehensive gum disease treatment regimen that can be customized to the needs of each patient. The method uses patented trays to deliver medication to the periodontal pockets where it is needed most. The medication contains a low concentration of hydrogen peroxide that gently cleans your gums and removes the biofilm that causes periodontal disease.

Is Perio Protect Treatment Effective?

Perio Protect reviews indicate that the treatment offers significant benefits over surgery. Since the treatment is noninvasive and does not involve the removal of gum tissue, there is no recovery time, and patients are less likely to experience tooth sensitivity or subsequent infections. Perio Protect has been shown to remove up to 90% of pathogens, which can eliminate the need for surgery, or at least improve outcomes if surgery is still needed. You can repeat the treatments at home to prevent further bacteria buildup and recolonization.

Is Perio Protect Treatment Time Consuming?

One of the primary benefits of Perio Protect is its convenience. Our Perio Protect dentists will show you how to apply the treatment at home, so there is no need to rearrange your busy schedule to make multiple trips to our office. Based on the severity of your periodontal disease, the dentist will determine the overall length of your treatment and how frequently you will need to perform the treatments to achieve the desired results. Most patients notice a significant improvement in their gum health by wearing the trays for as little as 10 to 15 minutes a day.

What Can I Expect When Getting Perio Protect in Collingdale?

Getting Perio Protect is easy and painless. The dentist starts by making an impression of your teeth that the lab will use to make the custom trays that will hold the medication. The trays look similar to a mouth guard and fit securely over your teeth. You simply wear the trays to apply the medication as directed by the dentist.

What Kind of Perio Protect Results Can I Achieve?

In Perio Protect reviews, patients are often most excited about how much healthier their mouth feels following treatment, including fresher breath and whiter teeth.

What Kind of Training Do Your Perio Protect Dentists Receive?

In order to prescribe Perio Protect, the dentist must undergo specialized training in how to administer the treatment and how to teach patients to use it themselves, so it is not available at all dental offices. The treatment is also fairly new, so some dentists are not even aware that it exists. Our dentists have completed the rigorous training and certification requirements necessary to offer the treatment.

What Factors Determine My Perio Protect Cost?

All patients are charged separate fees for the trays and their prescription medications. The exact cost of the treatment is not fixed and can differ based on the amount of medication that you need and the frequency of your treatment. We will provide you with more information regarding your Perio Protect cost and payment options following your initial consultation.

How Much of My Perio Protect Cost Is Covered by Insurance?

It is possible that a portion of your treatment cost may be covered by your dental insurance plan. Benefits, however, vary widely from plan to plan, so you should speak with your insurer directly before scheduling your appointment. Even individuals with the same insurer may have different coverage limitations based on the specifics of their plan. When speaking with your insurer, be sure to ask if you have benefits for insurance code D5994. If you have trouble determining your coverage, our staff is always happy to help.

How Do I Schedule an Appointment for Perio Protect in Collingdale?

Most patients with periodontal disease can benefit from Perio Protect. Even if your condition is too severe for Perio Protect alone, our dentist can help you devise a treatment plan using a combination of Perio Protect and traditional treatment options. Call today to schedule your consultation.
