We Take Dental Infections Seriously
A lot of times a dental infection can point out other problems besides the problem with your tooth. You may decide to make an appointment to visit our dental office because you have a nagging toothache. However, during your visit it could be discovered that you have signs of gum disease. You don’t have to panic or worry. Periodontal disease can be treated in our office with regularly scheduled appointments. We can discuss the difference between periodontal disease and other kinds of problems that can affect your mouth. One such problem is gingivitis. We’ll make sure you have all of the information you need to make positive choices for your dental health, including periodontal treatments.
Fight Infection Where It Has Started
It is very important to treat periodontal diseases, and simply flossing and brushing won’t take care of it either. In fact, periodontal diseases are the #1 cause for tooth loss in American adults. The relationship between an elevated risk for systemic events and periodontal disease may not have been connected yet, but data suggests there is a possible connection between health issues such as diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and preterm low birth weight babies and periodontal diseases. Now there are ways to fight periodontal infections right where they start. Arestin is an antibiotic treatment prescribed in powder form. The powder is applied inside an infected periodontal pocket just after periodontal treatments such as scaling and root planing to help fight any infections. Now we have the means to fight such dental infections right where they have started. Contact our office to make an appointment to get your dental health on the right track.
