Gum Disease Treatment in West Los Angeles
Non-Surgical Perio Protect® Treatment
Elegant Smile Dental strives to provide our patients with the best oral health care and latest breakthroughs. Periodontal disease, more commonly referred to as gum disease, has traditionally been treated with deep cleaning of root surfaces, or scaling and planing—an approach that is often temporary and uncomfortable.
Our dentists are pleased to offer our patients the Perio Tray® by Perio Protect, a non-surgical, minimally invasive, long-term gum disease treatment. Prescribed and customized by our dentists, the at-home dental device delivers an application of medication deep into the gums in 10-15 minutes daily. The tray features an internal seal to keep it in place and ensure maximum medication exposure.

How Do I Know If I Have Gum Disease?
It is important to practice good oral hygiene to manage the oral bacteria that leads to gum disease. Many other serious diseases are linked to this oral bacteria, including heart disease, type 2 diabetes, and strokes.
Common signs of gum disease include:
- Receding gums
- Bleeding gums, especially when brushing or flossing
- Build-up of tartar or plaque
- Tender, swollen, or red gums
- Chronic bad breath
- Sensitive teeth
- Loose teeth
- New gaps between teeth
Our West Los Angeles dentists can also help you determine if you have early signs of gum disease, and if Perio Protect is the right treatment option for you.
