PERIODONTICS is the study of the specialized system of hard and soft tissues that support the teeth and maintain the position of the jaw. A periodontist specializes in the prevention of periodontal disease. They are experts in oral inflammation. Periodontal disease, also known as gingivitis, is inflammation of the gums and infection of the surrounding tissue that holds the teeth in place. It is caused by poor oral hygiene that leads to plaque (a sticky film of bacteria) which builds upon the teeth and hardens. This can lead to periodontitis, an extreme form of gum disease that later, if not taken care of, can destroy the tissue, bone, or both. The signs and symptoms can be inflammation and bleeding while brushing. You should see your dentist every six months to prevent this disease and continuous care by brushing between meals and drinks and flossing regularly.
The innovative Perio Protect is non-invasive Perio Trays proven to deliver treatment deep into periodontal pockets, where toothbrushes, rinse, and floss fails to reach. These customized trays end the cycle of gum disease by extending treatment from the dental chair to the comfort of home. They’re also the only periodontal medicine delivery mechanism with certified FDA clearance.©
