It is estimated that approximately 80 percent of Americans suffer from some form of periodontal disease, often referred to simply as gum disease. This chronic infection within the tissues of the gums can lead to a variety of serious oral health concerns, including a receding gum line, tooth sensitivity, and even tooth loss. At Exceptional Smiles, Dr. Gregory M. Solich and Dr. James E. Orban offer Perio Protect®, a revolutionary periodontal management system, to patients from Colorado Springs, CO and the surrounding areas.
Gum disease is caused by an accumulation of bacteria-ladened biofilm between teeth and beneath the gum line. The bacteria within this sticky, colorless film thrive in periodontal pockets, spaces beneath the gum tissue that are impossible to reach with normal brushing, flossing, and rinsing. Over time, this bacteria causes inflammation of the gingival tissue, which further exacerbates the issue as the pockets become deeper. Left untreated, gum disease may contribute to not only oral health complications, but to systemic problems like high blood pressure, heart attack, stroke, difficult to control diabetes and more. With Perio Protect®, Drs. Solich and Orban can help you effectively reduce your risk of these and other health problems associated with periodontal infection.
Perio Protect® is formulated to promote lasting gum health in a way that is minimally invasive, efficient, and convenient for patients along with traditional periodontal management regimens. Using customized Perio Protect® trays and a prescription debriding solution, your dentist can effectively disrupt the growth pattern of bacterial colonies within the mouth. Controlling the growth of these bacteria is crucial to proper periodontal management, actively preventing the worsening of gum disease between visits. Using Perio Protect® at home takes only minutes a day, and our patients enjoy the fact that their trays are so comfortable and easy to use.
Both Dr. Solich and Dr. Orban are certified providers for Perio Protect®, so you can rest assured in the knowledge that you are in experienced, capable hands at Exceptional Smiles. We genuinely look forward to utilizing our skills, technology, and expertise to offer you protection from gum disease and related complications. Our state-of-the-art dental office in Colorado Springs, CO warmly welcomes patients from throughout the surrounding areas of Monument, Castle Rock, Pueblo, and beyond.
