The Perio Notes website is dedicated to helping you understand gum disease, how serious it is, and how to find the best minimally invasive options for your condition. Many Americans have gum disease (some estimates say up to 85% of our population over 35 years old) and either don't know it or don't understand the seriousness of it. Click on the Gum Disease tab to find out what the symptoms are and that will help you know if you have this disease. Then click on the Treatment tab to see what some of your options are.
I hope you find this website helpful. Feel free to view the following video on the Perio Protect Method of treating gum disease. The Perio Protect Method of treating gum disease is a popular method used by dentists in the U.S. and Canada as an option to more invasive gum disease treatments. In fact most dentists that offer the Perio Protect Method claim this is the least invasive treatment option available. Click on the Perio Protect tab to learn more about the Perio Protect Method of treating gum disease, but basically, Perio Protect offers a methodology designed to reduce the need for repetitive invasive procedures (painful deep cleanings or surgery). The Method combines a customized tray delivery of medication below the gumline with professional cleaning procedures. It is important to clean below the gumline and deliver medication there because that is where bacterial communities thrive. The non-invasive prescription tray delivery of medication can be done by patients at home between office visits.
