More than 80% of Americans suffer from some form of periodontal disease. The good news is that gum disease can be cured at every stage with in-office procedures and take-home Perio Protect® gel.
If ignored, periodontal disease, caused by an oral plaque infection, can cause permanent tooth loss, bleeding gums, and systemic conditions like stroke. Our experienced dentists near you provide a full range of gum disease treatments, including deep cleaning, antibiotics, and Perio Protect®️ treatment in Citrus Heights, CA.
Periodontal or gum disease begins with colonies of bacteria settling on teeth surfaces. The bacteria slowly slide into the spaces between teeth and slip into the gum tissue at the base of the tooth, where they form deep gum pockets. Gum pockets that measure more than 4 mm in depth are usually sites of infection.
The bacteria in the periodontal pockets spread rapidly, causing inflammation, soreness, and bleeding. If you don’t receive timely treatment at New Vision Dentistry, the oral plaque roots itself in the gums and penetrates body tissues, leading to more dangerous consequences.
Our skilled dentists in Citrus Heights, CA, may combine traditional in-office gum disease treatment with Perio Protect®️ for the best results. Perio Protect Trays® also reduces the need for repetitive scaling treatment or surgery. The trays fit snugly over your teeth and gums and can be self-administered in the comfort of your home. They continue to work while you continue to work, watch TV, or cook.
Perio Protect® can be used as a stand-alone treatment or in combination with other treatments.
In the past, aggressive gum disease was usually treated with the help of surgery. However, while surgery has its advantages, it also leads to tooth sensitivity and involves an extended healing time. While gum surgery may not always be avoidable, take-home Perio Protect Trays® provides a non-invasive alternative treatment.
The patented trays deliver plaque-killing peroxide gel deep into infected gum pockets to eliminate plaque. Perio Protect® treatment near you is not only non-invasive but also repeatable.
