Gum or mints can freshen your breath, but they may be masking a larger issue in your mouth. Bad breath is often caused by gum disease and one in two American adults have the chronic form of the disease. It starts with infections under your gums where a toothbrush, rinse, and floss can’t reach. To help resolve the infections and freshen your breath, we offer prescription Perio Trays.
Perio Trays are custom-made to fit comfortably over your teeth and gums, delivering prescription medication deep below the gum line. They are a non-invasive way to supplement gum infection treatment with the bonus of freshening your breath and whitening your teeth. They are easy to use, non-invasive, and treatment is self-administered at home.
Patients report a noticeable difference within just a few days, including whiter teeth and fresher breath. Perio Trays give you more control over your oral health, whether you are treating an early stage of gum disease or trying to minimize surgical intervention. Be sure to ask our hygiene team how you can get started or call our office for more information.
