Perio Protect®

Perio Protect
Originally published at

Perio Protect® is a comprehensive method that is customized for individual patients to help manage biofilms, communities of bacteria, growing in the spaces or pockets between teeth and gum tissue. The overall goal of the Perio Protect Method™ is to manage oral biofilm with minimally invasive dentistry for lasting oral health.

The Method is a combination of treatments, including a non-invasive chemical debriding therapy used in conjunction with traditional mechanical debriding procedures. The chemical therapy involves a tray delivery of doctor-prescribed solutions to chemically debride biofilm from the periodontal pocket and alter the pocket’s microbiological environment to disrupt biofilm growth.
The standard cleaning procedures in dental offices (e.g. scaling and root planing) help remove plaque and tartar and help reduce bacteria, but unfortunately bacteria reproduce quickly and biofilms regenerate very easily, so it is difficult to control them between office visits.

With the Perio Protect Method, you can place prescribed solutions into periodontal pockets with an appropriately formed, customized dental tray between office visits to help manage biofilm. Although a dentist must choose the most appropriate solution for individual patients, the most commonly prescribed solution with the Method has oxidizing and oxygenating agents. Oxidizing agents debride (chemically remove) the slimy protective coating of a biofilm and its underlying layers and also cleanse the oral wounds.

Here’s what one of our patients had to say about Perio Protect.


Dear Dr. Newton,

This is a summary of our recent conversation regarding my experience
with the PerioProtect system over the last one year.

One year ago you professionally presented the system’s strategy to me
regarding the health of my gums. I have had gum recession diagnosed
by three different dentists over the last many years prior to moving to
Henderson. lt was significant in several areas. The system made sense
to me and I elected to purchase the items necessary to implement
PerioProtect. I have been very pleased with the results.

There are three metrics that I have monitored over this last year. The
tendency for my gums to bleed when flossing, the amount of tartar
encountered when flossing and the tenderness of the gums when
flossing. All have improved materially.

I am a very satisfied patient and feel the PerioProtect system has made
a significant improvement in my dental health. Hopefully it will
decrease any future necessity of having to undergo dental implants.
Several friends and acquaintances have had dental implants. lwish to
avoid the significant time and discomfort associated with that
