Quik Chat with Tanya Dunlap, PhD: Benefits of tray therapy during the COVID-19 pandemic

June 8, 2020
As practices reopen, we have many patients who need to be seen as soon as possible—but are also being advised to avoid the use of aerosol-generating treatments. Amber Auger and Tanya Dunlap of PerioProtect discuss how tray therapy can close this gap.

Managing periodontal disease, which places a chronic burden on the immune system, is more important than ever during the COVID-19 pandemic. But as dental practices have been closed, many patients have gone without care. Dental hygienists face a huge patient backlog and some restrictions on aerosol-generating procedures. In this situation, hydrogen peroxide tray therapy, which has already been shown to have extensive benefits, can be invaluable.
