Non-Surgical Periodontal Therapy in Farmington

Periodontal disease affects 75 percent of the population and can contribute to overall poor health. At our office we treat this infection with a no surgery approach. We use various mechanical procedures to remove the plaque, tartar and stains from the teeth; this is the first step in controlling this infectious disease. Smoothing the root surfaces promotes healing. The addition of locally administered antibiotics directly into the infected areas accelerates the healing process. As with all of our dental services, these procedures are performed with patient comfort as our primary concern.
