Perio Protect is a dental appliance, similar to a night guard or sports guard, offered by Fine Dental. Some patients with gum disease can forgo expensive periodontal procedures and receive treatment with the non-surgical Perio Protect method instead. The appliance helps the patient maintain gum tissue and works to effectively control periodontal disease.

appliance, and what it is, it's similar to a night guard, if

without being your own advocate, it's a mistake and I want my
patients to be their own advocates and be able to put as many
things into their own control even within my practice because that's
the best we can do for them and we're there to help
them. Then we're working for them.
