Whether you have a history of issues with poor periodontal health or want to have more protection against the start of future problems, the right oral hygiene routine is valuable. At our Encinitas/San Diego, CA periodontal practice, we can help with this by providing you with Perio Protect. This gives you the materials you need to ensure that bacteria you do not reach with your toothbrush or floss are successfully addressed before they can cause long-term harm through an infection.

Are You Interested In Doing More To Protect Your Gums?
For the sake of your smile and your health in the long run, you should take problems with your periodontal health seriously. When oral bacteria start to gather on the roots of your teeth, they cause gingivitis, which can eventually turn into a more serious issue with periodontal disease. How serious is the progression of an infection? When it occurs, the problem becomes more difficult to manage, and it can cause attachment loss that leaves teeth insecure to the point where extractions become necessary. You also have to worry about spreading bacteria affecting your overall health after traveling through your bloodstream. While our office is here to provide services for patients who visit us, we can also supply them with Perio Protect, which helps improve the at-home defense against gum disease.
Fitting Perio Protect Into Your Daily Life
As an additional treatment with brushing and flossing, Perio Protect will help you take on problems with your gums by targeting bacteria that threaten harm to these tissues. Custom trays that come with these treatment kits make it easy to apply the antimicrobial materials that we supply. Through this regular application, you can take care to destroy harmful oral bacteria before you have issues with your well-being that have to be resolved through more involved treatments.
Discussing In-Office Periodontal Treatment
For those who want to stop an active problem with gingivitis from worsening, and those who need help managing an active problem with periodontal disease, there are preventive services that can be beneficial. Scaling and root planing can stop gingivitis, while Supportive Periodontal Maintenance can be effective at preventing complications from existing trouble with periodontal disease.
