The Perio Protect Method is an effective, sensible approach to treat bacteria that cause gum disease. At the heart of the method is the adjunctive Perio Tray delivery of medication.     The basic idea is to get medication under the gums and into the pockets where bacteria grow and keep it there long enough for the medication to work, all in a comfortable, non-invasive way.  Not a simple task. That's why the Perio Tray is such an important advancement

The Perio Tray is easy to use. You put the medication into the trays, wear the trays as instructed by your dentist and that's it! It's comfortable, it works well and it's convenient. The Perio Protect method's combination of Perio Tray delivery along with thorough dental cleanings is the least invasive approach available, and research shows better results than cleanings or scaling and root planing alone.

Perio Trays are custom fit for individual use. They have a special seal and extension system that correspond to the conditions of the gums around each tooth. The seals and extensions help direct and maintain medication under the gums at the site of the periodontal pocket.  For most people treatment time amounts to minutes each day. As healing occurs your dentist will modify the frequency and duration of usage, until the infection is under the control and the disease is well managed.
