Scripps Rock Dental Adopts Perio Therapy: A Non-Surgical Gum Treatment Scripps periodontal specialist employs perio therapy, a non-surgical gum treatment to treat periodontal disease. Periodontitis—a set of inflammatory diseases affecting the tissues that surround and support the teeth—if not treated earlier cause serious gum disorders such as gingivitis, bad taste, wobbly tooth, gum abscesses, coronary artery disease, and more. “90% of people with periodontal or gum disease are at risk of diabetes, among other life threatening conditions including stroke. Still, 30% of people are genetically susceptible to periodontal diseases” revealed in a recent scientific study by NYU College of Dentistry. Perio therapy is proving to be safe and painless. The treatment usually involves a deep cleaning to disrupt the biofilm or bacterial colonies beneath the gums. This treatment is done under a local anesthetic, in some cases in conjunction with the use of local antibiotic agents like Arestin. To get more proven results, the periodontal specialist will offer a diagnostic DNA test. Through this test they determine the type of bacterial causing periodontal disease. “Our patients benefit from the highest technology, state-of-the-art materials and procedures, and the skill and experience of the doctor and staff. We do everything possible to insure you the best possible experience. We are committed to preventative care and want to help you maintain healthy teeth and gums for a lifetime.” Dr. Anthony Hatch, Dr. Shivi Gupta, and Dr. Paul Luczynski of Scripps Rock Dental are highly recommended by most patients. The cosmetic dentists at Scripps Rock Dental also utilize Laser Assisted Periodontal Therapy (LAPT), an amazing breakthrough in periodontal treatments. The LAPT procedure is highly effective, non-invasive, and FDAapproved. The family dentists at Scripps Rock Dental proffer a versatile range of treatments including bonding, digital x-rays, fillings, TMJ treatments, teeth whitening, root canal therapy, sealants, Invisalign, and more. For new patients they offer teeth cleaning, exam, and x-rays only for $99.
Those with high blood pressure should always alert their periodontist before starting the treatment to avoid future complications.
