PerioProtect—Hingham, MA

Treat Gum
Disease at
the Source

PerioProtect allows patients struggling with gum disease to benefit from a gentle, effective, and custom-made treatment that can be done almost entirely at home. Rather than just addressing the symptoms of this infection, it allows patients to remove the underlying bacteria that is the source of redness, bleeding, and sensitivity. Admired Smiles Dental Center is proud to offer PerioProtect in Hingham to empower patients to recover their health in a convenient and comfortable way.


What Is PerioProtect?

PerioProtect consists of two parts—a set of clear mouth trays and prescription medicine. A patient fills the trays with the medicine and wears them at home for a limited time each day, and this allows the medicine to reach the deep parts of the gum pockets where gum disease bacteria reside. It’s able to go much further than a toothbrush, floss, and even our professional instruments, using a non-invasive method that removes the root cause of the infection.

Who's a Good Candidate for PerioProtect?

Dr. Hegazi typically recommends PerioProtect to patients who have mild to moderate gum disease. It may be used on its own to prevent a minor infection from becoming worse, or it can be paired with scaling and root planing to remove bacteria leftover after a deep cleaning. All in all, it’s best for patients who have struggled to control their gum disease for a long time and would benefit from daily treatment beyond routine brushing and flossing.
