Dentist in Willoughby Hills offering Perio Protect, a non-surgical gum disease treatment
Gum disease can be eradicated through repetition and vigilance. Fortunately for many patients, invasive surgery is not always required. Dr. Michael Stern and his team in Willoughby Hills, OH offer an excellent and proven solution called Perio Protect. Perio Protect offers incredible benefits and is cost efficient. This treatment uses patented, non-invasive Perio Trays which deliver treatment deep into the periodontal pockets. This is important because these periodontal pockets are where brushing, flossing and rinsing can be unsuccessful in reaching.
Treatment starts with a conversation
The first step towards the Perio Protect treatment is to sit down with your dentist and if, after an exam, gum disease is found, discuss your options. There are some cases in which more invasive options may need to be pursued, but if a non-invasive option is possible, you will need to discuss it with your dentist. Dr. Stern’s preferred non-invasive treatment for gum disease is Perio Protect and he would love to discuss this treatment option with you.
Once the Perio Protect treatment is selected as an applicable treatment, impressions of your mouth will be taken so that specially fitted trays can be created in the Perio Protect labs. These custom-fabricated mouth guard devices are designed to gently distribute medication below the gum line and keep it there while combating infection. The killing of bacteria is accomplished through persistence and these trays do the work for you while living your everyday life. You just put them in as part of your daily oral care and, after only 10-15 minutes, you are done. This non-invasive treatment is a great option before pursuing more invasive options such as surgery and/or scaling procedures.
Once Dr. Stern and his team receive your custom fit trays, they will show you how to place the medication in the trays for daily use. If this seems like an option you would like to pursue, you should give Dr. Michael Stern and his team at (440) 210-0999 so that you can begin your journey toward a healthy, beautiful smile!
