This is serious business. The bacteria present in plaque can inflame your mouth tissue, deteriorate your teeth and bone, and wreak havoc in your body. But don’t worry. We have some of the most effective methods for treating gum disease available today.
We start with a deep-cleaning method called scaling or root planing to remove plaque and tartar from teeth above and below the gum line. We may also use antibiotic therapy with Arestin. Arestin is composed of tiny micro spheres that can last inside the gum pocket for up to 21 days, effectively killing the bacteria that causes gum disease.
If your gums bleed at all when you brush, floss, or eat, please contact us right away. We’ll get you back to health in no time!
