Gum Treatment

Dr. Waterfall and the hygiene staff are certified providers for the PerioProtect® gum treatment system, which is a simple, inexpensive and non-invasive choice for the treatment of some forms of periodontal disease (gum disease). PerioProtect offers people the most gentle and effective way possible to fight the bacteria that cause gum disease. With the PerioProtect method, the patient places prescribed solutions into periodontal pockets with an appropriately formed, customized dental tray for a few minutes per day. Our patients report that their mouths feel cleaner when using this method, and in many cases report whiter teeth and fresher breath.
