You don’t have to undergo invasive surgical procedures to heal your mouth of gum (periodontal) disease if you visit our dentist for the Perio Protect® treatment. We will perform deep cleanings at Jones Bridge Dental Care while you use the Perio Protect gel at home in order to fight bacteria and gum disease. Call Dr. Leo Eliezer if you want to benefit from Perio Protect treatment in Alpharetta, Georgia.
Gum disease develops when plaque bacteria and tartar extend under your gum line. The soft tissues there become irritated, infected, and inflamed, causing redness and swelling. Eventually, gum disease starts to destroy the gum and jaw bone tissues, which can result in tooth loss. Additionally, gum disease increases the bacteria levels in the mouth, which can spread to the rest of the body and cause serious health problems.
There are many extensive surgical and antibiotic treatments that fight gum disease, but we offer the minimally invasive procedure of Perio Protect. This system is used in conjunction with dental cleanings and often improves their effectiveness. To complete Perio Protect, you simply need to deliver a hydrogen peroxide gel medication to your mouth using a dental tray for just a few minutes a day. This system fights the bacteria in your mouth and helps to heal your gums of infection. Contact our dental team if you would like to learn more about our Perio Protect treatment.
