More than 75% of all Americans suffer from some form of gum disease, a destructive infection that attacks and destroys the gum tissue, supporting connective fibers attaching gums to teeth, and underlying bone supporting the teeth.

Patients diagnosed with gingivitis or periodontitis and undergoing treatment often struggle with home care in between appointments. Insufficient home care can cause their condition to worsen, ultimately causing tooth and bone loss and other related systemic diseases.

GUMX is a home-care treatment system for patients with gum disease. Coupled with in-office treatments such as scaling & root planing, irrigation, or application of an antibiotic called Arestin, GUMX treatment can help patients manage their gingivitis or periodontitis by actively fighting bacteria buildups and preventing bacteria from spreading.

How GUMX Works

Customized trays created to conform to a patient’s mouth are filled with a small amount of GUMX antibacterial gel each day to deliver medication deep below the gum line, reaching every possible nook and cranny where bacteria hide and multiply. GUMX takes just 10-15 minutes a day and treats a broad range of oral health conditions:

  • Prevents and treats gum disease
  • Alleviates swollen, sensitive gums
  • Reduces occurrence of bleeding gums
  • Restores overall oral health

GUMX even improves the success rate of dental implants because it helps maintain healthy bone surrounding the implant and prevents periodontal disease from developing. It is completely safe and appropriate for most patients, including pregnant women.

To find out if GUMX is right for you, consult your dentist.
