Through the right daily behaviors, you can preserve your oral health, and you can avoid problems that negatively affect the way you look. One thing to keep in mind is that your periodontal health can impact your appearance and well-being in ways that may surprise you. At our Encinitas/San Diego, CA practice, we can provide you with Perio Protect as a resource for protecting your gums. Used as part of your routine to prevent or control problems with your periodontal health, Perio Protect can give you a means of directly targeting bacteria affecting your tissues.
Are You Doing Enough To Protect Your Gums?
Your gums are vulnerable to infection, and if you do not protect them effectively, the problems you face can be serious enough to affect your general health. Problems with your periodontal tissues also make you more vulnerable to tooth loss over time, as bacteria can weaken the support for your teeth. Professional treatment from a periodontist can help you fight problems with active periodontal disease to prevent complications. You can also come to our office to discuss both in-office preventive services and to learn how Perio Protect can help you defend your gums at home.
Using Perio Protect To Fight Bacteria
Perio Protect provides you with a means of fighting the microbes that cause periodontal problems on a daily basis. We provide custom-made trays and antimicrobial agents that you apply directly to your gums. Through these treatments, you can control the spread of bacteria under your gum line, which helps you avoid potential complications with an active problem. It can also help you prevent difficulties from developing.
How In-Office Services Help You Fight Periodontal Problems
It may be necessary for some patients to seek help in the form of in-office care. We provide different options for people with different degrees of poor health. When you seek treatment in time, you can arrange preventive services, including a scaling and root planing to reverse gingivitis and stop it from progressing. We also provide more involved services, including laser periodontal treatments to remove infected tissues as well as bacteria from the roots of teeth.
