Perio Protect in Austin, TX
A proven at-home gum disease treatment that whitens teeth, too!
Great Teeth & Healthy Gums, Better Life!
Gum disease impacts the health of millions of Americans. The problem is twofold:
- Without regular exams and checkups, most people aren’t aware they have gum disease
- Old-fashioned low-tech treatments and surgery often lead people to avoid treating gum disease
At Austin Dental, we offer Perio Protect, a high-tech, comfortable, and proven gum disease treatment. It’s non-invasive, takes just minutes a day, and you can do it at home. Plus, it can even whiten your teeth, too.
If you’ve been told you have gum disease but are worried about how to treat it or if you’d like whiter teeth and healthier gums, schedule your appointment today. Or call (512) 835-1924 to learn more.
What is Perio Protect?
The Perio Protect system is surprisingly simple and effective. Our dentists begin by taking 3D digital images of your teeth and gums. Using these images as a guide, we craft custom Perio Protect trays that are designed to fit comfortably into your mouth.
At home, you’ll fill the trays with a specially formulated peroxide gel and wear it for about 15 minutes each day. Within a few weeks, you’ll see a noticeable improvement in both the whiteness of your teeth and the health of your gums.
Perio Protect is so effective because the trays hold the anti-bacterial peroxide gel snugly against the gumline where bacteria love to hide. Because the trays are custom made to fit your mouth, they’re more comfortable than other mouthguards and dental appliances you may have worn in the past.
Gum Disease & Your Health
In addition, there’s more and more research showing the connection between gum disease and serious health issues like:
- Heart disease, heart attacks, and hypertension
- Alzheimer’s disease
- Diabetes and diabetic complications
- Stomach and pancreatic cancers
To protect yourself, see a dentist often for an exam and cleaning. The bacteria that cause gum disease are often difficult to remove at home by brushing and flossing at home. Regular dental exams help catch gum disease in its earliest stages, allowing for non-invasive and painless treatment options like Perio Protect.
Is Perio Protect FDA approved?
Yes, Perio Protect has been tested and approved by the FDA. It’s also been scientifically proven to kill the bacteria that cause gum disease and whiten teeth, too.
How much Perio Protect gel do I need to use?
Each tube of peroxide gel will last about 2-3 weeks depending on your recommended course of treatment. Your dentist will show you how to fill your Perio Protect trays to get the most out of your treatment.
Is Perio Protect the only way to treat gum disease?
We offer a variety of other gum disease treatment options, including gingival cleaning and gum therapy. We’ll work with you to create a treatment plan designed to maximize your dental health and whole-body wellness.

“I had so much apprehension going into today after dealing with a large chain where I was made to feel really badly for the state of my teeth. Both the hygienist and doctor were very comforting and I walked away feeling great. I can’t say enough great things about this place and can confidently say that I will be a customer for life.”
