Dr. Isaac Comfortes of Encino, California helps patients fight periodontal disease in the most minimally invasive way possible with FDA-approved Perio Protect™ treatment developed by his colleague, Dr. Duane C. Keller, and now used by patients worldwide. The Perio Protect™ system, which is very easy to use, has been proven in clinical studies to kill harmful bacteria within 72 hours.
“The innovative Perio Tray® is like a mouth guard, but it has a special sealing system to deliver medication below the gums,” says Dr. Comfortes. “This treatment is used in conjunction with gum therapy and is highly effective, because it continues to fight the bacteria that cause chronic gum inflammation where they hide — deep in the pockets between the teeth and gum tissue. Not only is this one of the newest available treatments for oral health care, but I believe one of the most important.”
If you have advanced or chronic low-grade gum inflammation, Dr. Comfortes will explain to you the benefits of wearing Perio Trays on your upper and lower arch for several minutes a day. We will take measurements of your mouth and send your dental molds to the dental laboratory, where a customized internal seal will be fabricated for your personal trays. You will put your prescribed medication in your trays and pop them in your mouth at the most convenient time(s) of day for your treatment. The pressure created by the seal forces the medication deep into gum pockets. With daily application, the disease-causing bacteria cannot flourish, and your gum tissue will heal.
Depending on your oral health, Dr. Comfortes will recommend the most appropriate solution for your trays and may recommend you wear your Perio Trays two to three times a day to start, then once daily for maintenance, until the inflammation is fully under control.
