What is Non-Surgical Periodontal Treatment?

Perio Trays deliver medication where tooth brushes, floss and rinses can’t reach.

Perio Protect® is a comprehensive treatment approach that combines professional cleanings with a special, comfortable tray delivery of medication that you use at home between office visits. The Perio Tray® by Perio Protect is similar to a mouth-guard, but it has a special sealing system to deliver medication below the gums. You put medication in the tray and wear it for a few minutes a day. It is that easy.


The most important advantage of the Perio Protect approach is that it can treat the bacteria causing the disease in a comfortable way, minimizing surgery and antibiotics.

The Perio Tray is important because bacteria reproduce so quickly under the gums that it is difficult to control them between office visits. Research shows that when professional cleanings are combined with Perio Tray delivery of hydrogen peroxide gel, patients get better results than the cleanings alone.

Your actual treatment plan is determined by your Perio Protect dentist evaluating your specific condition.
