Recent studies estimate that 8 in 10 U.S. adults have some form of periodontal disease, also known as gingivitis or gum disease. Not only does gum disease affect the health of the oral cavity, but it can also be harmful to the overall health of the body as bacteria spreads throughout the circulatory system. Dr. Ramon Ortiz in Oldsmar, FL recently introduced Perio Protect, a simple and minimally invasive treatment for gum disease that encourages oral health for more patients.
Traditional methods to treat gum disease include oral medications or in later stages, surgical treatments. The Perio Protect method involves the use of custom-fitted plastic trays that allows the gum tissue to have more exposure to topical medications and cleansing agents. Each custom tray has seals and extension systems that target specific areas of infected gums. When this at-home system is used in conjunction with regular cleanings, patients can see dramatic improvements in their gum health.
“We believe that every one of our patients deserves a healthy smile, and that starts with having healthy gums,” said Dr. Ramon Ortiz. “Periodontal disease is a rampant issue in the U.S. population, and unfortunately if escalated too far, can cause severe dental issues requiring surgery along with systematic disease. With Perio Protect, we’re making it easier for patients to prevent and reverse many forms of gum disease using a simple at-home system.”
Gum disease or gingivitis is usually caused by lack of brushing and flossing, which allows for bacteria to develop in the pockets of gum tissue between the teeth. Early signs of gingivitis can be seen when gums bleed after flossing, while later stages are diagnosed by deep pockets or sores in the gums. The unique design of Perio Protect trays allows for prescribed topical medication to penetrate the gums over time, resulting in one of the most effective treatments for gum disease available.
In addition to their focus on periodontal health, Dr. Ortiz and his staff also provide a variety of general and cosmetic dental services.
