Periodontal disease is a serious issue that affects many people’s lives. At B & R Dentists we are skilled and capable of treating periodontal disease.
The cleaning of calculus, or tartar, is a major component of treating periodontal disease. However, changes in the patient’s behavior are just as important. Making sure your dental hygiene habits are up to par is critical in the treatment of periodontal disease. We offer a wide range of treatment options that not limited to but include scaling and root planning with or without the use of arestin, which is an antibiotic used after the cleaning to prevent infection.
Your teeth are meant to last a lifetime, so it is critical to properly care for them. If you have periodontal disease, don’t feel hopeless. It is a treatable disease, but one that requires the patient to be aware and active with their dental care.
