The good news for patients with periodontal disease (or who are at heightened risks for the disease) is that treating and controlling it isn’t usually difficult. With routine care and expert maintenance, you can save your smile from severe damage that often results from severe periodontal (gum) disease. For many patients in Encinitas/San Diego, that maintenance includes the application of advanced Perio Protect – an anti-bacterial solution that you can apply at home to boost your ability to fight gum disease.
The Secret to Protecting Your Gum Health
While several different factors contribute to gum disease development, the disease itself forms from certain types of harmful oral bacteria. Therefore, protecting your gums from the disease requires removing the bacteria from underneath them, as well as any tissues that may have become damaged by the them. For example, when gum disease develops, the first step is often a periodontal cleaning, or scaling and root planing, which focuses on removing harmful bacteria. Depending on the severity of your condition, you may also require routine maintenance to keep bacteria and the disease under control.
How Perio Protect Benefits You
To help you ensure that your gums remain healthy and that harmful oral bacteria remain at bay, Dr. Kania may suggest utilizing Perio Protect. You can apply the anti-bacterial solution daily from the comfort of home using a set of comfortable, custom-designed trays. In addition to thoroughly brushing your teeth twice and flossing at least once every day, using Perio Protect helps you eliminate a maximum number of harmful microbes, especially those responsible for gum disease’s development and progression.
