Bacteria can’t hide.
You can (and should) brush and floss each day. But don’t be disheartened if you continue to struggle with gum infections or bad breath.
Perio Protect goes deeper. With patented technology designed to deliver treatment where conventional methods simply can’t reach, you can reduce harmful and odor-causing bacteria. And while you’re at it, the stigma associated with gum disease.
Hydrogen Peroxide does the heavy lifting.
Or more accurately, the bacteria killing.
Hydrogen peroxide serves two roles. First and foremost, it kills bacteria. In addition, the bubbles from the hydrogen peroxide are releasing oxygen deep into the pockets. This creates a healthier environment for bacterial growth, so healthy bacteria can repopulate and exclude bad, pathogenic bacteria.
Peroxide has several advantages over conventional antibiotic therapies.
It’s natural. You make peroxide in your liver, and it’s in your white blood cells to fight infection.
Peroxide is also a broad-spectrum antimicrobial, whereas several antibiotics may be needed to treat all the bacterial species in the pockets. And over time, bacteria become increasingly resistant to antibiotic treatment.
You’ll want to stick with it.
Because patients use this therapy at home between office visits, they have the ability to influence their own outcomes. And when they see results—oftentimes after many previous failed attempts with more invasive methods—they are encouraged to continue.
It’s a self-perpetuating cycle of health. By sticking to treatments for 10 to 15 minutes a day, you can see dramatic improvements. It works quickly, demonstrating its worth and encouraging you to continue the treatment.
Treating gum disease requires exactly two instruments—strength and persistence. Perio Protect delivers both, without a scalpel.
It's all about better outcomes.
Gum disease deserves to be treated aggressively. In some cases, surgery may not be required. But when surgery is unavoidable, Perio Protect can help ensure the best possible outcomes by providing comfortable yet effective follow-up treatment. The research backs it up.
Your body’s overall health will thank you.
Patients who take their oral health seriously have the added side effect of better health for the rest of their body’s systems.
The gums are a gateway to major organs by way of the circulatory system. And eliminating infections at the source cuts off the pathway to further harm.
In fact, treating gum disease with the Perio Protect Method has been shown to reduce the presence of the most damaging pathogens by up to 90%.
By treating gum disease, you can reduce the risk of heart disease, type 2 diabetes, respiratory disease, Alzheimer’s disease, Colorectal Cancer and pre-term births and low birth-weight babies.
