Non-Surgical Gum Treatment
Healthy Care for Gum Problems
Gum ( periodontal ) disease is a bacterial infection caused by germs. Traditional treatment has been "mechanical" deep root cleaning and gum surgery. This method improves the gums for a while but does not stop the germs from getting reestablished again. Because of the bacterial nature of gum disease, many patients get gum disease back and just refuse to have gum surgery again. Mainly because is is painful and expensive.
Dr. Nugent is one of a few dentists in Naperville, who provide the Perio Protect treatment. It is a new healthy method of treating gum problems by applying medicine directly to the gums. It doesn't hurt and is done by the patient at home. Special FDA approved mouthguards are filled with a medicine gel that gets pushed below the gumline.\\The medicine kills the germs and allows the gums to heal. Bad breath is eliminated, bleeding and swelling of gums stops. There is no pain and it has a pleasant taste. Patients are excited because most can avoid gum surgery. Perio Protect along with vitamins and nutritional supplements can provide a long term approach to gum disease because it eliminates the cause of the problem, germs.
There are some side effects related to using this oral medicine. They include fresh breath, whiter teeth and happy gums. It's true, the Perio Protect treatment actually whitens teeth because the gel used in the mouth guards is a form of tooth whitener. Additionally, the patient's breath gets fresher because the odor causing germs are wiped out from the medicine gel. Bacteria release gas that creates a bad odor in your mouth. Perio Protect gel is a medicine that destroys the germs and oxygenates the gum tissues. Fresh breath comes from regular use of the gel.
