What Is Perio Protect?

The Perio Protect Method™ is a nonsurgical gum condition treatment designed for patients diagnosed with gum (periodontal) problems. Made for at-home use, the approach works through a personalized, patented Perio Tray™ containing a specialized sealing system. The mouth tray can be placed firmly over the teeth to transport a prescription hydrogen peroxide gel deep beneath the gums. The medicine treats harmful, infectious bacteria to enhance gum wellness and help avoid the development of gum conditions. Perio Protect could be given in conjunction with other gum disease therapies or if alternative selections have not been optimal. If you would like to hear more about this treatment or to connect with a dentist who provides Perio Protect in Wellesley, MA, please reach out to Wellesley Aesthetic Dental Group now.

Am I a Candidate for the Perio Protect Method?

Perio Protect provides a comfortable, convenient, and simple method to address periodontal conditions within the comfort of your home. The right patients for this therapy technique usually include:

  • Those who have received or are experiencing gum condition care (osseous surgery or scaling and root planing)
  • Those dealing with gingivitis or periodontitis

Gum disease might impact your dental and comprehensive wellness in numerous ways and can cause missing teeth and worrisome health risks when it is not treated. A handful of the more widespread markers and indicators of periodontal disease involve:

  • Gumline recession
  • Tooth loosening
  • Bad breath
  • Inflamed or uncomfortable gum tissue
  • Gums that bleed when brushing or flossing

When you have any symptoms or signs of periodontal conditions, please let our dental team know so we can determine whether Perio Protect is an option for you.

Patient with Dr Rafla for 25 yrs - After a car accident at 19 yrs old my only option back then was dental bridges. At 40 yrs old with nerve pain & failing bridgework I saw Dr. Rafla for implants.He is a total professional & expert periodontist, as well as kind, caring person. My implants have not failed in 25 yrs. I moved to Maine to retire and when told to see a local periodontist I couldn't start with someone new. I drove 3 hrs back to Worcester, MA for a consult because I trust Dr. Rafla.

E.P. Healthgrades

I originally came to Dr Rafla in 2021 for an implant. I live in CT and I wasn't able to get an appointment in my area. Dr Rafla was recommended so I called. I got an appointment with a couple days. The implant was perfect and Dr Rafla is amazing. I have a dentist in Connecticut but I continue to see Dr. Rafla every six months for a cleaning and check up. The hygienists do an amazing job. My cleanings at Dr Rafla's office just feel cleaner than my regular dentist. I end up paying out of pocket, but it's worth it for the cleaning and the check up.

J.K. Yelp

Dr. Lee did an outstanding job on my 2 crows. Her assistant Jessica was very helpful during the procedure. Elizabeth is a wonderful hygienist and very knowledgeable. Liz at the desk was very helpful regarding my dental insurance questions. The Wellesley Office location is clean, bright, parking is available on-site with multiple spots. Office provide friendly environment. Thank you.

Today was my first experience with Dr. Rafla and his wonderful, efficient, but most of all kind staff. I went to this very much dreaded appointment with no idea of what to expect. My poor teeth are so sore and they are making everything difficult. I have horrible gagging reflex which makes everything harder for those that are trying to take x rays to be able to guide me into having a proper diagnosis and treatment. Trust me when I say I was a difficult patient. I expected the doctor to say there wasn’t much hope for them. Instead after reviewing what I was giving him to work with he listed off the perfect game plan. All aspects would be easier on me and my issues and seem to offer a perfect solution. I hope Coach Bill Belechick has competition in writing a game plan. Dr Rafla can give him a run for his money. In no time at all Dr. Rafla had a plan devised to ease my pain and fix the pockets in my gums. I am anxious now to correct these problems and move forward with the plan Thank you Dr. Rafla and team for being both gentle and kind with me today.

How Does Perio Protect Work?

In order to commence the Perio Protect technique, our team will create molds of your top and bottom teeth. These molds will be taken to the Perio Protect lab, during which your Perio Trays are custom-crafted for a snug fit. After your trays get to our practice, you will return to fit them in and review your individualized treatment strategy. Our staff can show you how to place a tiny quantity of Perio Protect gel in the trays and position them in place. It is vital to apply your trays as instructed by our team, which might initially include using them for 10 – 15 minutes 2 – 3 times a day.
