Perio Protect in Salem, OR

All-natural, gentle, and effective at-home gum disease treatments


Healthier Gums & Whiter Teeth

Cure gum disease from the comfort of your own home! The Perio Protect system is proven to kill disease-causing bacteria, and even whitens your teeth, too! It’s a high-tech system that’s easy to use, comfortable, and provides real results. Left untreated, gum disease contributes to tooth loss, decay, and even systemic health problems like diabetes and heart disease. Compared to invasive surgical procedures, modern gum disease treatments like Perio Protect are a revelation!

When you visit our office to begin your Perio Protect treatment, we’ll start by evaluating your gum disease risk. Because Perio Trays can both prevent and cure gum disease, nearly everyone is a good candidate for treatment. Once you’re ready to get started, we’ll:

  1. Take impressions of your teeth to make custom-made, perfectly fitting Perio Trays
  2. Provide a specially formulated peroxide gel to wear in your trays
  3. Show you how to use the Perio Protect system at home
  4. Schedule follow up appointments to gauge your progress and gum health

At home, you’ll wear your Perio Protect trays for about 15 minutes a day. The trays fit snugly against the gum line, where bacteria love to hide. You’ll see an improvement in your gum disease symptoms and whiter teeth in as little as 2 weeks of daily use.

Gum disease warning signs to watch out for:

  • Chronic bad breath
  • Overly sensitive teeth
  • Bleeding after you floss or brush

How does Perio Protect work?

You might be wondering: why is Perio Protect so effective at fighting gum disease and whitening teeth, too?

The secret is in the peroxide gel and your custom trays. Peroxide kills the bacteria that cause gum disease. Peroxide is also a safe and powerful bleaching agent that breaks up stains to whiten teeth. Unlike other treatments, your Perio Trays are custom-fit to your mouth. They holds the peroxide gel right where it needs to be to both kill bacteria and remove tooth stains.
