Perio Protect® in South Philadelphia, PA

Achieve Healthier Teeth and Gums with Perio Protect® in South Philadelphia

Tender or bleeding gums, infections, and tooth loss are all potential symptoms of gum disease, which is also known as periodontal disease. The condition is the result of bacterial colonization on the surface of the teeth and in the spaces between the teeth and gums. Not only does gum disease affect your oral health, but it can also lead to systemic infections that can affect the health of your vital organs. If you have been diagnosed with advanced periodontal disease, schedule a consultation with one of our Perio Protect dentists to find out if this revolutionary treatment is right for you.

What Makes Perio Protect Treatment Unique?

Unlike traditional gum disease treatment that normally involves surgery to remove the diseased gum tissue, Perio Protect is completely noninvasive, so there is no discomfort or recovery time. The treatment uses patented trays that are custom fitted to your mouth to deliver the medication exactly where it is needed. You can even repeat the treatment as needed in the comfort of your own home.

Is Perio Treatment More Effective Than Traditional Periodontal Treatment?

Perio Protect reviews from dental professionals and patients show that the treatment is as effective, or even more so, than surgical gum disease treatment. Since traditional periodontal disease treatment is invasive, it is common for patients to experience gum and tooth sensitivity following the procedure. Surgical treatment also creates wounds that can open the door for even more infection. By using Perio Protect, you may be able to eliminate the need for surgical treatment or improve the results if surgery is still required.

Does Perio Protect Treatment Take a Long Time?

Your treatment time will depend on the severity of your gum disease. Our dentist will provide you with detailed instructions on how often to wear the trays and how long you should wear them during each session. Most patients see dramatic results when they wear the trays daily for as little as 10 to 15 minutes.

What Is the Process for Getting Perio Protect in South Philadelphia?

The dentist will start by making an impression of your teeth so that the lab can make your customized trays. The medication that you put in the trays contains a low concentration of hydrogen peroxide that attacks the damaging biofilm, leaving you with healthier gums, fresher breath, and whiter teeth.

What Kind of Perio Protect Results Can I Expect?

The Perio Protect method can remove up to 90% of damaging pathogens. Since there is no cure for gum disease, the fact that Perio Protect can be applied at home makes it easier for patients to manage the disease without having to disrupt their schedule with multiple dental visits. In their Perio Protect reviews, patients rave about the convenience of the treatment and how much healthier their mouth feels after starting the regimen. Schedule a consultation with one of our certified Perio Protect dentists today to learn more about the benefits of this unique gum disease treatment.

Do Perio Protect Dentists Receive Special Training?

Perio Protect is not available at all dental offices. In fact, some general dentists may not even know that the treatment exists. To be able to prescribe Perio Protect, our dentists undergo extensive training and certification to enable them to assess a patient’s suitability for the treatment and to teach them how to effectively use the system.

What Is the Average Perio Protect Cost?

Since Perio Protect is an individualized treatment method, the cost can vary for each patient. Your Perio Protect cost will include separate fees for the trays, as well as the medication. The cost of the treatment will also vary based on the amount of medication that you need and the frequency of your treatment. We will provide you with an estimate of your cost and go over your payment options following your consultation.

Will Insurance Cover Perio Protect in South Philadelphia?

Insurance coverage can vary widely even among patients with the same carrier. Before scheduling an appointment, we recommend that you contact your insurance provider to determine how much of your Perio Protect cost may be covered. When speaking with your insurer, be sure to ask if they offer benefits for insurance code D5994. Our friendly staff is happy to answer any questions that you may have about the insurance plans we accept or offer help if you have trouble trying to verify coverage.

Is Perio Protect Right for Me?

Most patients diagnosed with periodontal disease can benefit from Perio Protect. If you are looking for a nonsurgical gum disease treatment or are experiencing problems following surgery, we can help. If your condition is too severe for Perio Protect alone, our skilled dentists can help you by creating a treatment plan using a combination of treatment methods. Call today for more information.
