Research has shown that 85% of the adult population over the age of 35,in the U.S., has some form of Periodontal Disease. Because it doesn’t hurt, most people don’t know it. Our patients don’t fear periodontal treatment because we are one of a very few practices that is trained and certified to provide Perioprotect Treatment. This treatment usually eliminates the need for surgery. Appliances similar to mouth guards worn by athletes are designed, fitted and worn for varying frequency and lengths of time to deliver medication gel, under the gum. The medication kills the 99.98% bacteria that cause the disease. This then becomes part to the oral homecare regime.
