Periodontal Gum Disease Treatment

Dr. Miller and his staff are here to help you with all your oral health needs!


If you have gum disease, you are not alone. Millions of Americans have gum disease (gingivitis or periodontitis). With Perio Protect, you have a better way to fight it.

Gum disease is the body’s response to a bacterial infection in your gum tissue. Common symptoms of oral bacterial infections in the gum tissue include:

· Bleeding gums when brushing or flossing
· Receding gums (teeth appear longer)
· Obvious plaque, tartar or calculus
· Spaces developing between your teeth
· Swollen, red or tender gums
· Persistent bad breath
· Sensitive teeth
· Teeth are loose or mobile
Treatment requires a combination of professional dental cleanings and patient homecare. Unfortunately, toothbrush, rinse and floss don’t get deep enough to address the infections below the gumline. With the Perio Tray® by Perio Protect, you have an effective way to fight the infections. The tray is comfortable, flexible, and designed exactly for your mouth to deliver and hold medication under the gums long enough to manage the bacteria causing the disease.

Untreated infections can lead to tooth loss and may compromise your health. It’s important to talk to your doctor and hygienist about your conditions and treatment options. And it is important to treat the disease if you have it. Perio Protect can help.

Perio Protect® has been a leader in minimally invasive dentistry, as a periodontal (gum) disease treatment, for more than ten years with a method that offers patients a gentle, yet effective way to fight the bacteria that cause gum disease. Tens of thousands of dental professionals have attended Perio Protect dental trainings to learn this approach and the end result is. . . patients win.
