Discover the Way to Great Gum Health
If we find during our data gathering that you are either prone to periodontal disease or you are, perhaps, having an active problem, we use oral DNA salivary diagnostics. In other words, we want to know what specific bug is causing the problem. We want to know what specific type of bacteria that you have in your mouth that’s allowing this disease to be active. You have a normal flora of bacteria in your body. It all starts in the digestive tract with your mouth. We know from the latest research that there are specific types of bacteria in your mouth that is indigenous to you. We can’t give you an antibiotic and get rid of it. We simply have to control the numbers. Sometimes in periodontal disease, the numbers of these bacteria get out of control. We need to get them under control, so we can stabilize your disease. We always equate periodontal disease to diabetes. This is something that you have to live with, but we have the correct techniques to manage it in the best way possible. We figure out which bugs have grown to a number where they are out of control and causing the disease to be active. We target those specifically with out treatment.
