Anti-infective Therapy

A beautiful smile begins with a healthy foundation. Our mouths are a busy place and harbor many different kinds of bacteria. Many of the bacteria are good and necessary, however, some are harmful and can cause infection in the gums and bone that surround the teeth. If this infection is left untreated, it can lead to periodontal disease, which may cause loss of bone, and ultimately, could lead to tooth loss.

Good news…we can help you! Our chair side bacterial testing, provided during your initial visit, can help us learn about the bacteria, good and bad, living in your mouth and guide any necessary treatment. Anti-infective therapy can help rid the mouth of harmful bacteria, while keeping the good bacteria intact with the use of ultrasonics and antimicrobial rinses.

Give us a call today, mention our “anti-infective” program and receive complimentary bacterial testing at your initial exam
