RECENT STUDIES SHOW nearly half of all adults have some degree of gum disease. Although some periodontal treatments can be invasive or ineffective, The Perio Tray® by Perio Protect® is a simple treatment that reaches where your toothbrush, floss and mouthrinse can’t.

Perio Protect Treats Gum Disease Between Visits

Perio Protect is a comprehensive periodontal treatment approach that combines professional cleanings with effective, at-home treatment. The Perio Tray is similar to a mouthguard but it has a special sealing system to deliver medication below the gum line. You simply put the medication in the tray and wear it for a few minutes a day between office visits—it’s that easy.

Not only is this approach easy to use, it treats the bacteria causing your gum disease in a comfortable way, minimizing the need for surgery and antibiotics.

Better Results Than Office Visits Alone

Bacteria reproduce quickly under the gums, making it difficult to control between office visits. Research shows that when professional cleanings are combined with Perio Tray delivery of hydrogen peroxide gel, patients get better results than the cleanings alone. The Perio Tray is designed specifically to combat bacteria and supplement in-office treatment, helping you keep gum disease under control.

Get to know Robin! She is our Hygiene Scheduling Coordinator and joined the team in March 2016. 

Here are 5 things you should know about Robin:

1) Favorite Movie: Funny-Stepbrothers        Classic-Dirty Dancing

2) Dream Vacation: My dream vacation would be to go to Tahiti and stay in a little hut over the water.

3) What super power would you choose: If I could choose any super power it would be super speed. There is never enough time in the day to get everything done. If I could speed through laundry, dishes, cleaning, etc. there would be more family time.

4) What inspires you: My son. Ty is the most determined and driven 10 year old I have ever met. Whether it is in school, on the basketball court or on the baseball field he gives 110% all of the time. He doesn't stop and that determination inspires me to keep going when I want to give up.

5) What do you love about your job: I love getting to know people and seeing those same people every few months. We learn about their families, vacations, and jobs. We don't see them as 'patients' but more as friends. 

If you would like to schedule an appointment for your 6 month check-up and cleaning, make sure to call our office at 660-665-1901 and ask for Robin!
