Brushing, rinsing and flossing are important. But these efforts fail to reach deep below the gum line where bacteria thrive—in pockets and crevices around edges of the gums.
Traditionally, deep cleanings, known as scaling and root planing, or surgery have been required to reach deep into the pockets to treat advanced gum disease.
Scaling involves numbing the gums then scraping and smoothing the tooth surface to remove bacteria to prevent it from re-sticking to the root where it infects the gum.
Traditionally, brushing, rinsing, and flossing can’t combat deep-rooted gum bacteria, often requiring invasive treatments like scaling and root planing or surgery. These procedures are time-consuming and sometimes painful. Antibiotics may offer temporary relief but pose long-term challenges.

The Perio Protect Method™ (Usage of Perio Trays™) is a minimally invasive, effective gum disease treatment. It is backed by technology, and the results are proven through research. For some patients, the non-invasive Perio Trays reduce the need for surgical intervention. For others, it can be a potent compliment to traditional treatment methods, helping to ensure a more successful outcome.
Example of Perio Tray® being placed over teeth
When you receive your custom Perio Trays™, your dental team will show you how to place a small amount of prescription medicine in each tray. You wear it for just minutes each day. Your dentist will also design a treatment plan specifically for you, as the duration and frequency varies for each patient.
Example of Perio Tray™ that is placed over your teeth.
“Peri” originates from the ancient Greek word meaning “around, about or enclosing.” “Odon” also originates from Greek meaning “tooth.” Periodontal care refers to treatment of “periodontal disease” or any of a range of ailments that affect the gums and similar surrounding or supportive areas of the teeth. Anything from gum infections to severe gum deterioration would require periodontal care.
Perio Trays™ offer a simplified solution to common areas of periodontal care, and provide additional benefits.
Yes, custom-made Perio Trays™ are designed to deliver treatment deep into periodontal pockets (the tiny crevices between the teeth and gums) for 10-15 minutes at a time. That means patients can address infections while getting ready in the morning, while walking the dog, while reading a book—while not worrying about technique or proper form.

While there is no “cure” for gum disease, it can be managed with daily treatment to prevent pathogenic bacteria from recolonizing. When the desired results have been achieved, your dentist will revise your treatment plan to maintain the results.
For some patients, the non-invasive Perio Trays reduce the need for surgical intervention. For others, it can be a potent compliment to traditional treatment methods, helping to ensure a more successful outcome.
The Perio Protect Method™ is an appealing, minimally invasive option for advanced periodontitis and early-stage gum disease alike.
Traditional whitening products can sometimes cause sensitivity.
