Antimicrobial therapy is a non-surgical treatment that helps eliminate the bacteria causing the infection in periodontal pockets. The treatment involves placing an antimicrobial agent directly into the pockets to kill the bacteria and reduce inflammation. This helps prevent the spread of infection and promotes healing of the gums.
Our experienced team is skilled in performing antimicrobial therapy for periodontal pockets. Our team will carefully evaluate your oral health and determine if this treatment is right for you.
The benefits of antimicrobial therapy for pockets include:
- Improved oral health: By eliminating the bacteria causing the infection, antimicrobial therapy can help prevent gum disease and other oral health problems.
- Reduced inflammation: The antimicrobial agent helps reduce inflammation in the pockets, promoting healing and reducing discomfort.
- Prevents tooth loss: If left untreated, gum disease can lead to tooth loss. Antimicrobial therapy can help prevent this outcome by stopping the spread of infection.
- Easy and non-invasive: Antimicrobial therapy is a simple and non-invasive treatment that can be performed in our office in a single visit.
