PerioProtect is another form of treatment we provide to aid in improving periodontal health. Spruce Grove and area residents can turn to Campbell Dental Centre for this particular service and others that address periodontal issues.
PerioProtect can be used by anyone, from those who are clinically healthy to those with gingivitis, and for those who have periodontitis. How this system works to improve oral health is by using low concentration hydrogen peroxide gel and sometimes an antibiotic to kill bacteria within the pockets around the teeth. The medicaments are delivered via a tray system which allows the products to enter the space around the teeth, but doesn’t allow it to come out of the pockets until the trays are removed. The trays are worn for a determined amount of time per day based on the pocket depths around the teeth. Wear time can vary depending on the health of the gums. Again, this is not a “quick fix” for periodontal disease, as the trays are recommended to be used daily in the same way brushing your teeth is performed on a daily basis.
