Periodontal disease is a widespread oral health problem affecting millions of people around the world. It is caused by infection and inflammation of the soft tissue and bone that support your teeth. Gums typically appear a healthy pink to dark brown, depending on your skin tone, and fit snuggly around the tooth. However, as gum infection begins to set in, patients often notice redness, sensitivity, and gums loosening from the tooth. This early stage of periodontal disease in known as gingivitis and can treated with gingivitis treatment if caught early. However, sometimes gum disease goes untreated an escalates into periodontitis.

The Bucks County Smiles Perio Protect treatment is an easy and convenient at-home system allowing you to tackle gum disease continuously for fast results. We begin by conducting a thorough examination and taking a digital impression of your teeth and gums. Your impressions are sent to an FDA-registered lab to create your Perio Protects trays. Perio Protect trays are thin, soft, and comfortable to wear. Once your trays are ready, you will take them home to begin your treatment. Your trays containing Perio Protect medication will be worn for a few minutes each day after brushing a flossing. The trays are meant to fit snuggly to your teeth and gums allowing the medication to go deep beneath the gumline. This reduces the activity of harmful, disease-causing bacteria in areas that are hard to reach with brushing and flossing. The medicine kills harmful bacteria and breaks the bond between the bacteria and your teeth. As a result, removing plaque and tartar becomes easier. Patients often notice whiter teeth and a less bad breath in addition to a healthier look to their teeth and gums.
