Procedures
PerioProtect

PerioProtect™ allows you to supplement your in-office care of periodontal disease with home care.  The system employs specially designed trays that allow you to administer medications prescribed by Dr. Hale to the gingival crevices/pockets.

To begin, precise impressions of your mouth are taken and sent to a registered dental laboratory where customized trays are fabricated. These trays allow the medications to reach deeper into the gingival crevices, or periodontal pockets, allowing more comprehensive treatment.

Treating Periodontal Disease with the Perio Protect Method™

The PerioTrays® used in the PerioProtect™ system have been approved for use by the FDA, but there have not been extensive clinical trials done to prove the effectiveness of treatment with these devices. For more information on this, please see the American Academy of Periodontology's article on the subject.
