What is Perio Protect?
Perio Protect is an FDA cleared breakthrough approach with over 15 years of clinical success in treating dental problems like gum disease and helping maintain optimal gum health while freshening the breath and whitening teeth. It combines cutting-edge technology using a safe and effective gel that oxygenates below the gums using Hydrogen Peroxide and improves your at home dental routine to help you achieve a brighter, healthier smile.
What makes Perio Protect the best periodontal trays?
Perio Protect's customized trays are designed and FDA cleared to comfortably deliver medication underneath the gums against the outward crevicular fluid. This at-home application of prescription gels using specially designed trays allows a painless, effective and consistent way to reduce the bad bacteria below the gums, reduce bleeding and improve overall gum health. These trays are the only trays Dentulu approves to ensure that the medication reaches the deep pockets between your teeth and gums, where bacteria thrive.
Dentulu's Perio Protect Trays Improve Dental Visits
Wearing Dentulu's Perio Protect trays can benefit your dental implants, crowns and bridges, routine cleanings, and even help reduce the cost of your future dental work. Here's why:
Using Perio Protect daily can help reduce the need for expensive deep cleanings, lasers, and subgingival antibiotics
Using Perio Protect in combination with remineralization gels like MI Paste, Fluoride gels, and pastes that include Nano Hydroxyapatite can help reduce and reverse small cavities
Using Perio Protect you can target bad bacteria underneath the gums where they are hiding
Gum Disease and Inflammation
Gum disease acts as a persistent source of chronic inflammation that places a strain on your immune system. The more sources of inflammation your body contends with, the higher your risk of developing a range of serious health conditions. These include.
Inflammation may heighten the chances of cardiovascular problems.
Persistent inflammation could influence how your body responds to insulin in the context of type 2 diabetes.
Inflammation stemming from gum disease might impact your respiratory health.
Emerging research suggests a potential link between gum health and cognitive function in conditions like dementia and Alzheimer's disease.
There's an association between inflammation and an elevated risk of certain cancers, including colorectal cancer.
Gum disease during pregnancy can potentially lead to adverse outcomes, including pre-term births and low birth-weight babies.

How It All Started
Benefits of Perio Protect
Easier Dental Appointments
Fresher Breath, Whiter Teeth
Stop the Bleeding
your body's response to a bacterial infection. Perio Tray™ therapy fights the infection in a comfortable and easy way.
It usually starts with bleeding gums
Bacteria gathering along the gumline come together to create clusters that extend deeply between the teeth and the tissues of the gums. This area is referred to as the periodontal pocket.
It can spread and lead to
When not handled appropriately, bacteria have the potential to travel to different areas of the body via the bloodstream, resulting in more severe consequences. The pathogens found in gum disease have been associated with conditions such as heart disease, specific types of cancer, Alzheimer's disease, and other systemic health issues.
It’s more common than you think
Over half of Americans have chronic gum disease. Chronic means the infection has progressed beyond gingivitis and bone loss is evident. At this point it cannot be cured.
There is an effective way to treat it
In the past, patients have typically undergone deep cleanings or surgical procedures to combat this illness. They would then need to visit the dentist every three months for ongoing care throughout their lifetime. However, this approach has shown limited effectiveness.

Dr. Melba Bonelli
Patients are empowered to care for themselves daily—beyond brushing and flossing.
Gum disease is the inflammation of gum tissue and the loss of bone supporting the gums that result from infection in perio pockets (the spaces between the teeth and gums).
The most common sign of gum disease is blood in the sink after brushing. Gum disease is usually diagnosed by your dentist, hygienist or periodontist. But you can take our online survey to identify if you are a candidate for treatment.
Advanced gum disease has traditionally been treated through a series of surgeries. The Perio Protect Method® can be used to help prevent the need for surgery or as a follow-up to surgery to ensure the best possible patient outcome. The earlier the disease is detected, the less likely there will be a need for surgical intervention. If you are diagnosed with gum disease, be sure to talk to your doctor and ask about available options, including Perio Protect.
Perio Protect is an innovative treatment regimen that utilizes custom trays, molded to the mouth of an individual patient and designed to deliver bacteria-fighting medicine deep below the gum line where brushing and flossing simply cannot reach. We could go on about its benefits and results.
Not every dentist is a Certified Perio Protect Provider. There’s a chance they may not know about this relatively new treatment method that is revolutionizing the way thousands of dentists and hundreds of thousands of patients around the country are addressing gum disease.
It works because it’s simple to use, comfortable and effective.
Surgical tools are aggressive. The Perio Protect Method is aggressive and gentle. In some cases, Perio Protect can reduce the need for surgery. In cases where surgery is unavoidable, Perio Protect is a trusted follow-up to surgery prevents disease from recurring. Homecare matters, and this homecare system is designed specifically for patients with periodontal disease.
Side effects may include fresher breath and whiter teeth. In fact, some patients seek Perio Protect directly for these reasons. The bacteria that causes gum disease can create a foul odor. By treating gum disease, we are able to improve significantly improve hygiene and deliver brighter smiles.
Absolutely. We are proud to report that patients using Perio Protect in controlled clinical trials had significantly better outcomes than patients who did not use Perio Trays.
Advanced gum disease is not “curable.” But the levels of bacteria can be managed with excellent homecare.
