PerioProtect Protecting Rocky River
Gum disease, also called periodontal disease, is a potentially serious bacterial infection that affects about 80% of our population. Because the mouth is a portal to the human body, gum disease can become a serious health problem. Left untreated, gum disease can escalate and increase a person’s risk for stroke, heart attack, diabetes complications, low-weight births, and dementia. Continuing research is underway on the dental health/whole health link, and we learn more valuable information every day. Dr. Eick and our team are dedicated to partnering with you in overcoming and deterring gum disease.
Dr. Eick and our dental hygiene team have found PerioProtect to be a highly effective treatment for patients who suffer from gum disease. The program involves FDA-approved Perio Trays to deliver potent medication into gingival crevices and periodontal pockets, where bacteria hide and flourish. Dr. Eick creates a custom treatment plan based on each patient’s unique case. Our hygienist will review your customized plan and answer all of your questions during your visit.
To create your PerioProtect trays, we will take a dental impression, then send the information to a trusted laboratory. Your trays will fit comfortably against your teeth and gums. This convenient, effective gum disease therapy doesn’t interfere with patient’s daily activities.
