How Does Perio Protect Work?
Perio Protect is a non-invasive, convenient, and comfortable system for treating gum disease and whitening teeth at home. Treatments take only about 15 minutes each day. Here’s how it works:
- Start with a visit to Greater Long Island Dental in Massapequa for a gum disease exam.
- We’ll make a set of custom trays and provide you with peroxide gel.
- The custom trays hold the gel snugly against the teeth and gums, killing gum disease-causing bacteria.
- You’ll wear your trays daily and see results within a few weeks.
That’s all it takes to start healing your gums and improving your health!

Frequently Asked Questions
Is Perio Protect FDA approved?
Yes! Perio Protect has been approved by the FDA and is backed by scientific research to fight gum disease and whiten teeth.
What medicine is used in Perio Protect?
The Perio Protect system uses antibacterial peroxide gel. The bacteria that cause gum disease are killed when they come into contact with this gel. The effectiveness of the treatment is bolstered by the design of the trays which hold the gel directly against the gum line where bacteria thrive.
How long does Perio Protect gel last?
Each tube of gel will last about 2-3 weeks depending on how often you use it. By the time you finish your first tube of gel, you’ll likely start seeing whiter teeth and healthier gums.
Does gum disease cause heart disease?
Recent research does indicate a link between gum disease and heart disease. In addition, people with gum disease see a higher rate of diabetic complications, Alzheimer’s disease, stroke, pregnancy complications, and some cancers.
