Perio Tray Rated Best by Independent Practitioners

Posted on August 20, 2012

Saint Louis, Missouri (PRWEB) August 13, 2012—Private practitioners who evaluate dental products for Clinicians Report® recognized the Perio Tray® from Perio Protect, LLC, a dental (periodontic) as a product that “Real-World Practitioners Use and Value Most.”

The Perio Tray® was cleared by the FDA in 2004 as a prescription medical device for home use designed to place solutions prescribed by the dentist into both shallow and deep periodontal pockets. The Perio Tray® is uniquely designed to seal precisely against the gums to prevent leakage of medication in that it can both deliver medication to periodontal pockets that harbor active gingival infection, but also to keep it there long enough to have real therapeutic effect.

In studies recently published in The Journal of Clinical Dentistry, the Perio Tray® delivery of medication, combined with scaling and root planning (SRP), was found effective against gingival infections, with more significant reductions in bleeding and pocket probing depths than SRP alone.

Clinicians Report® is an independent, non-profit, dental education and product testing foundation. Its survey of products is conducted twice a decade. The designation “Real-World Practitioners Use and Value Most” is reserved for the best products in dentistry, based on the long-term opinions and observations of clinical success.
