Pain-Free Gum Disease Treatment
We are pleased to offer our patients a potent weapon in the battle against gum disease called ARESTIN™. It comes in a powder consistency and contains invisible microspheres. These tiny microspheres deliver a time-released antibiotic to the infection. ARESTIN then kills the bacteria contributing to gum disease. The best part is that you won’t feel anything!
A second option is an FDA-approved treatment called Perio Protect™. It’s also easy, painless, and very effective. It’s as easy as wearing whitening trays! Gum disease can only be arrested quickly and effectively when the medication stays between the teeth and below the gum line. Saliva continually washes away medications in a short amount of time. This severely limits the potency of many gum disease treatments. The breakthrough of Perio Protect is that the trays keep the medication where it’s needed for a much longer period of time. This means the tissues can quickly heal.
Patients often see results as fast as a few days. If you’ve been advised you need gum surgery – check with us to see if you might be a candidate for ARESTIN or Perio Protect!
