Recognizing The Value Of Preventive Services
Smart preventive care through brushing and flossing will be your initial line of defense against periodontal problems. Every time you practice these habits, you are removing harmful bacteria, as well as the food debris they feed on. It is important to make sure you are targeting your gum line while you brush, and when you floss. By doing so, you concentrate your efforts on removing those agents that could lead to an infection.
Fight Gum Disease At Home With Perio Protect
If you are concerned about a potential infection of your gum tissues, you can take home Perio Protect, and enjoy an extra degree of support. Perio Protect gives you a custom tray you can use to apply antibacterial agents directly to your gums. By doing so, you are fighting any harmful agents that might have gathered, and started attacking your periodontal tissues.
Addressing Periodontal Disease With Ozone Therapy
When periodontal disease takes hold, it can become more difficult to address, meaning your daily oral care could be less than effective. To help you treat your gums, your periodontist can offer ozone therapy. This is a special approach to treating your gum tissues, as it relies on a direct application of oxygen to attack the microbes that are creating trouble for you. Through the administering of oxygen, the destructive anaerobic bacteria present in your gums can be better managed.
