The Smile Institute has become a proud provider of the Perio Protect Method®
We are a prevention oriented practice and we believe a vital step to a healthy mouth is maintaining healthy gums. Nearly 80% of Americans suffer from gum disease and 50% from chronic gum disease, both of which are treatable with proper oral care and maintenance. This is why the Perio Protect Method® is such a great resource.
As advanced gum disease worsens or is left untreated, patients likelihood of gum surgery doubles. We want to avoid that at all costs, which is why we’ve decided to partner with the Perio Protect Method® to offer our patients the best at home gum disease treatment available.
How It Works
The Perio Protect Method® uses non-invasive Perio Trays® that deliver treatment deep into periodontal pockets, where toothbrushes, rinse and floss fail to reach.
These trays are designed with a patented seal to place and hold medication where it is most effective. A low concentration of hydrogen peroxide gently cleanses the periodontal pockets, combating bacteria, whitening your teeth and freshening your breath.
