How to Find the Right Dentist for You
recently had a dental emergency that
prompted her to use her experience
as a warning to others.
Periodontal disease has become known as "the silent disease" because most people don't even know they have it.
But it's the result of bacteria contaminating the gums with harmful byproducts.
Prevention and early diagnosis are the keys to bringing gum problems under control, which is why we recommend regularly scheduled dental exams. Only one-fifth of all Americans with periodontal disease actually seek treatment.
During a routine checkup, if problem is found, we simply clean the area and place a small amount of the localized antibiotic into the pocket to eradicate the colonizing bacteria, it's so simple and the patients couldn't be happier because it's quick and painless.
One such treatment is a low dose of antibiotic gel-like substance that adheres to the tooth for up to three weeks. During this time, the antibiotic is released into the pocket to destroy the remaining bacteria not removed by thorough cleaning techniques.
