To combat gum disease, Oval Dental provides ARESTIN® antibiotic treatment! To help you get the best results possible, this periodontal therapy—which helps get rid of dangerous bacteria—is frequently used in conjunction with other gum disease treatments.
Dental Deep Cleanings
Our doctor could advise extensive dental cleaning as the initial stage of treatment if you've been diagnosed with periodontal disease. Deep cleanings, also known as prophylaxis, aim to rid your mouth of all harmful bacteria and other disease-causing elements so that your gums may start to heal and restore.
When you have periodontal disease, a surgical treatment called a gingivectomy is performed to remove germs and plaque from the roots of your teeth. Our prosthodontist will give a local or general anesthetic to ensure your comfort throughout this treatment. After gently separating the gums from the teeth, germs and calculus will typically be eliminated using scaling and root planing. Contact us to learn more about gingivectomy.
After your first gum disease treatment is complete, our prosthodontist and team will arrange for you to come in regularly for periodontal care. These continuous treatments aid in keeping gum disease under control for you to maintain a healthy mouth and smile.
