Perio Protect

What Is Perio Tray®?
At the heart of Perio Tray® in Chicago, Illinois, is delivery of medication. The basic idea is to get medication under the gums and into the pockets where bacteria grow and keep it there long enough for the medication to work, all in a comfortable, non-invasive way. This is not a simple task, which is why the Perio Tray is such an important advancement and why we are pleased to offer it at University Dental Professionals.

The Perio Tray Is Easy to Use
You put the medication into the trays, wear the trays at home as instructed by your dentist and that’s it, until you return to the dentist for a recall visit. It’s comfortable, works well, and it’s convenient. The Perio Protect Method combines Perio Tray delivery with thorough cleanings from a dental office. This is the least invasive approach available, and research shows patients gain better results from this than cleanings alone.

Custom Fit For Individual Use
They have a special seal and extension system that corresponds to the conditions of the gums around each tooth. The seals and extensions help direct and maintain medication under the gums to the infected sites.

Takes Only Minutes Each Day
For most people, treatment time amounts to minutes each day. As healing occurs and conditions improve, one of our dentists will modify your frequency and duration of usage, gradually decreasing patient usage until the infection is under control and the disease is well managed. You can then follow a home care maintenance schedule to keep the bacteria at bay. Call 773-684-5702 today if you have any questions!
