Perio Protect

Perio Protect®

Perio Protect® trays are a set of custom-fabricated, FDA approved trays that are easy to use and comfortable to wear. The trays offer a special seal that gently guides antimicrobial solutions into the periodontal pocket (sulcus) and maintains the medications for a sufficient time to control the bacteria causing the infection. The video below shows how Perio Protect® works:

Impressions for Perio Protect® trays will be taken at the next to last scaling and root planing appointment and then delivered at your final appointment. In the beginning of treatment, trays are typically worn 4-5 times per day for 15 minutes per application, depending on the severity of your condition. As healing occurs, your dentist will alter the frequency that the trays should be worn, with the goal of reaching one time per day.

Perio Protect® is non-invasive, painless, easy to use, comfortable and more affordable than periodontal surgeries. Patients notice fresher breath within a few days, whiter teeth over time, easier at home plaque removal and healthier pink gums with very little to no bleeding. In addition, subsequent cleanings will be much easier and more comfortable due to decreased pocket depths.

Medication refills for the Perio Protect® trays can be ordered directly from Dakota Pharmacy by calling 1-800-290-7028 at a cost of approximately $16 per tube. The number of tubes ordered is dependent on how often you wear your trays. With one application per day, a tube of medication should last at least one month. Discounts are offered when two or more tubes of medication are ordered simultaneously.
