Breakthrough Perio Treatment
Periodontal disease, or gum disease, affects four out of five adults. Periodontal disease is a response to a bacterial infection of the gums. Gum disease can result in receding gums, gaps between the teeth, tender gums, sensitive teeth, bad breath, and tooth loss. Worse, the inflammatory reaction it creates can cause a cascading effect on the vascular system that could lead to more serious health issues including strokes, heart attacks, and more. Gum disease is common, but like a wound in risk of infection, the longer gum disease goes without treatment, the more at risk a patient becomes for these inflammatory conditions. Dr. Bare and his team work to treat gum disease at its earliest stage to protect patients and prevent problems.
OralDNA and pH Testing
The OralDNA and pH testing that Dr. Bare utilizes allows for a more specific diagnosis of your periodontal needs, leading to more effective treatment. By utilizing OralDNA and ph testing, we can diagnose the different kinds of bacteria that are causing your inflammation, and determine if there are any pathogens that may pose a greater risk to your oral and overall health. OralDNA testing plays an important role in our perio treatment, because it allows us to better understand where the bacteria is in your mouth, and what problems the bacteria could be causing. With OralDNA, we can assess your personal risk, and address your issue at its source to prevent worsening symptoms. OralDNA testing can determine the severity of your periodontal disease and whether you may be at risk for other systemic disorders including heart attacks, stroke, diabetes, certain cancers, and low birth-weight babies.
Non-Surgical Perio Therapy
Dr. Bare uses a non-surgical periodontal therapy called Modular Periodontal Therapy. Modular Periodontal Therapy involves proper diagnosis, medications, and convenient at-home care. Using OralDNA and PerioProtect, we can thoroughly diagnose your level of periodontal disease and create a personalized treatment plan. OralDNA and PerioProtect allow us to perform a once-in-a-lifetime test on a patient’s genetic code that can help us find out if the patient is predetermined to contract periodontal disease. This non-surgical perio therapy allows you to enjoy a route back to health that excludes pain and scalpels.
