Dr. Ann Kania, a leading periodontist in Encinitas, CA, offers holistic periodontal treatment that takes into account the whole person, including their overall health, diet, and lifestyle, in addition to their oral hygiene. The goal of this patient-centered approach is not only to treat gum disease but to promote optimal oral health and prevent future problems.

Scaling and Root Planing: Dr. Kania offers this non-surgical procedure to remove plaque, tartar, and bacteria from the teeth and roots, reducing inflammation and promoting healing of the gum tissue.

Antimicrobial Therapy: Dr. Kania utilizes antimicrobials to kill harmful bacteria in the mouth, either topically or through systemic means, to improve overall gum health.

Dental Cleanings: Regular dental cleanings are a crucial component of maintaining healthy gums, and Dr. Kania’s highly trained team of dental hygienists can effectively remove plaque and tartar build-up, reducing the risk of gum disease.

Lifestyle Changes: Dr. Kania understands the impact of diet and lifestyle on gum health and offers personalized recommendations to help improve overall oral health. Quitting smoking, reducing stress, and eating a balanced diet low in sugar and high in nutrients can all have a significant impact on gum health.

Nutritional Supplements: To further support optimal oral health, Dr. Kania may recommend specific nutritional supplements, such as Vitamin C, Vitamin D, and Omega-3 fatty acids, that have been shown to promote healthy gums.

Alternative Treatments: There are options for alternative treatments to treat gum disease. These treatments are used to facilitate the growth of gum tissues. The same treatments are used in other areas of medicine to help promote the healthy growth and repair of ligaments, tendons and muscle joints.
