Perio Protect Method™
The Perio Protect Method™ is a comprehensive treatment approach to help manage oral bacteria associated with periodontal disease. Method treatment guidelines recommend that mechanical debridement (e.g. scaling and root planing) and/or laser assisted removal of bacteria be combined with patient delivery of oxidizing agents (e.g. 3% hydrogen peroxide aqueous solution) into the gingival sulcus or periodontal pocket via a prescription dental tray designed to effect such delivery.
This chemical therapy to help debride and cleanse oral wounds can be administered by patients between office visits. Many doctors prescribe the hydrogen peroxide therapy first to help debride and cleanse oral wounds and thus reduce the scope of invasive procedures which risk introducing bacteria into the blood stream. Surgical treatments are also recommended with the Perio Protect Method if necessary. However, the goal is to help patients avoid surgery or repetitive invasive procedures whenever possible.
What Does Research Tell Us About the Perio Protect Method™? Since the Perio Protect Method™ was introduced to the public in 2005, peer-reviewed articles, case studies and research abstracts have appeared in professional journals confirming the significant benefits achieved by using the Method. In addition, scientific posters summarizing research studies have been presented at professional dental research meetings.
These publications and presentations demonstrate the effectiveness of the Perio Protect Method™ as a treatment for oral bacteria, for reducing bleeding on probing, and for decreasing periodontal pocket depths.
