Perio Protect in Vancouver, WA 


Control Gum Disease Easily & Comfortably

Gum disease is more than just something you see in toothpaste commercials. In fact, almost half of all adults in the United States suffer from gum disease! 

Gum disease is not something that can be ignored. Not treating gum disease can lead to tooth loss, bone loss, bad breath, or even heart disease and other whole body health issues.

At Pickens Family Dentistry, we’re pleased to offer our patients the cutting edge in at-home gum disease treatments: Perio Protect. This innovative treatment uses custom trays and a special gel to infiltrate the pockets between your teeth and gums. It truly is the best at-home way to treat gum disease quickly and effectively, and even works to whiten your teeth!

Benefits of Perio Protect

  • Easy to use
  • Minimally invasive
  • Quick & impactful results

  • Completed in the comfort of your own home

    Perio Protect at Pickens Family Dentistry

    Perio Protect works to not only rid your mouth of gum disease, but prevent it from developing again after treatment. 
    Here’s how it works: custom fit perio trays fit snugly against your gum line and are worn at home for 15 minutes a day. You’ll see progress and whiter teeth in as little as 2 weeks of regular use!

    Perio Protect Process

    When you come into our office, we’ll use our advanced and high-tech diagnostic tools to make sure Perio Protect is right for you.
    Once we determine that it is in fact the right treatment, we’ll….

    1. Get started by taking a digital impression of your teeth and gums to ensure a perfect fit for your custom-made and perfectly crafted perio gel tray

    2. Provide you with the special peroxide perio gel that’ll work in conjunction with your trays

    3. Show you how to use your trays and answer any questions

    4. Schedule a follow up appointment to take a look at your progress and make any necessary adjustments to your treatment
