Periodontal Disease Treatment
Periodontitis treatment methods depend upon the type and severity of the disease. We can provide a wide range of periodontal disease treatments to meet our patient’s individual needs.
Some of our treatments include:
Scaling and Root Planing
For this treatment, we use laser technology to remove the bacteria and hardened tartar that is causing the gum disease. Scaling and root planing is a non-invasive procedure that is performed for patients whose periodontal disease has progressed too far to be treated with regular cleanings alone.
ARESTIN® Antibiotic Treatment
ARESTIN is a minocycline hydrochloride that comes in tiny microspheres. We often use ARESTIN in conjunction with a scaling and root planing procedure in order to improve the effectiveness of this treatment. After the scaling and root planing is completed, we will place the ARESTIN medication in your periodontal pockets. It slowly releases antibiotics directly to the infected gum tissues. The ARESTIN eventually dissolves on its own after getting rid of bacteria and reducing the size of periodontal pockets. Call our office today if you would like to benefit from ARESTIN antibiotic treatment.
