Gum Disease should be treated in the least invasive and most cost effective way possible.
Generally, the earlier it is spotted, the easier it is to deal with. Easier cases are treated with better oral hygiene and relatively simple dental cleaning and polishing, while for more severe cases periodontal surgery is indicated. Lifestyle changes also help prevent recurrence of gum disease and inflammation. We can help by giving you professional advice to better care for your teeth and suggesting adequate treatment options for your condition.
Patients who are noted to have periodontal disease will be recommended for a deep cleaning (usually with anesthesia) along with the use of Arestin. Arestin is an antibiotic placed below the gum line and into the pocket to help facilitate healing. In most periodontal disease cases this is enough but we do offer further periodontal procedures if necessary to combat periodontal disease. This includes Emdogain (a bone and tissue growth factor),dental bone grafting, pocket reduction surgery, and crown lengthening procedures. We are also proud to offer Periogen (tartar dissolving oral rinse) which helps minimize tartar buildup between appointments.
