Gum disease starts when a community of bacteria called a biofilm develops in the space or pocket between the teeth and gum tissue, causing an infection. The symptoms are part of the body’s response to the bacterial infection. Many people ignore the symptoms that are hidden, but the disease is serious. Infected and inflamed wounds in your mouth should be treated with the same urgency as your skin.
The Symptoms of Gum Disease Include:
- Bleeding gums
- Sensitive teeth
- Persistent bad breath
- Swollen, red or tender gums
- Spaces developing between your teeth
- Receding gums
- Loose or mobile teeth
The Treatment Process
Bacterial communities called biofilms form between the tooth and gum tissue.
The prescription PerioTray places medication into periodontal pockets. This technique is combined with regular professional cleanings.
Gum disease is never cured, but once tissue health has been restored, the Perio Method continues to provide management help.
Perio Trays are easy to use.
It only takes a few seconds to create your trays, and most people wear them for only minutes each day. You can complete you treatment while reading, exercising, showering, and watching TV, whenever it is convenient for you.
Patients report a noticeable difference within days. Research shows that when Perio is followed as prescribed, the Method delivers better results than cleanings alone.
Gum disease can cause persistent bad breath and may affect the appearance of your smile. The medication most commonly used with the tray contains a low concentration of hydrogen peroxide gel that helps freshen breath and gradually whitens teeth.
Whether treating the disease in an early or advanced stage, adding tray delivery to your homecare regimen gives you more control over your oral health, helps with long-term bacterial management, and gives you a whiter, brighter smile.
