A number of studies have shown that various forms of Periodontal Disease have up to a 85% incidence rate in adults. More noteworthy is the finding that many of these adults are unaware of having the beginning stages of these diseases.

It is common for most of us, however, to notice the minor (beginning stage of gingivitis) symptoms and dismiss them entirely or attribute them to brushing our teeth too hard or eating too many spicey foods.

Avoidance behavior in dentistry is fairly standard. We all tend to avoid thinking about problem issues, especially if they are minor, until they become significant. Tiny cavities become cavernous cavities before we have them treated.

With gum disease however, a minor issue can become quite serious, causing bleeding gums and irreversible loss of teeth and critical bone mass.

Nearly everyone who has suspected they may have a gum problem typically shares some of the concepts represented in the following list:
  • Embarrased about gums already beginning to bleed
  • Fear of surgery
  • Embarrassment because you hate to floss (very common)
  • Fear of losing teeth
  • Bad breath
  • Sensitive or sore teeth
  • Fearful of painful treatment
  • Expensive treatments
When the symptoms become severe and impossible to ignore or dimiss, we tend to start paying attention. Bleeding gums, persistent foul breath or perhaps loosening of teeth moves us into action. Unfortunately this degree of belated intervention is at the critical stage, which will probably cause serious bone, tissue and tooth loss.

Comfortable and Convenient Treatment Choices

In our office Dr. Leventhal now provides a number of intervention treatments regardless of whatever stage of gum disease is present. Minor symptoms are typically treated non-surgically with some basic patient education, a thorough cleaning followed up with some short term antibiotic medications.

Saint Louis MO Periodontist Advanced stages of gum disease (periodontitis) can be treated via traditional periodontal therapies or with Perio Protect® an FDA approved procedure that enables Dr. Leventhal to provide non invasive effective treatment with:
  • No Painful Scraping
  • No Expensive Surgery
  • No Lengthy Appointments
  • No Shots
  • No Pain
The Perio Protect system, a popular choice for patients seeking non surgical treatments, has been proven (over 16 years of research and clinical trials) to kill harmful bacteria within 72 hours.

Foul breath is eliminated for many patients. Swelling and inflammation becomes more controlled and eventually leads to the elimination of bleeding gums.

How Perio Protect Works

Dr. Leventhal will fit you with custom made trays, similar to athletic mouthguards.

A special antibiotic gel is formulated and placed inside of the trays. The antiobiotic gel seeps in above and below the gumline which begines to eliminate all bacteria and calculus (tartar).

Based on your diagnosis, an instruction sheet outlining frequency of wear is given to you to take home. The entire treatment is done in the comfort of your own home. You will notice, as treatment progresses, that your teeth will become whiter while your breath becomes fresher.

During occasional follow up visits in our office, our hygienist will gently remove any remaining softened deposits and evaluate the progress of treatment. The visits will be quick, easy, and painless.

Perio Protect offers a new way of eliminating most connective tissue and gingival tissue diseases without traditional perio surgery
