Routine checkups are the best time for Dr. Antoun to examine your mouth and catch any potential signs of gum disease or tooth decay. Early prevention of these issues is essential for maintaining a healthy smile. Schedule a preventive appointment every six months to stay on top of your oral health.
Preventive care keeps your mouth free of common oral health issues like tooth decay and gum disease, which saves you both time and money. Routine preventive care also removes plaque and tartar, which can contribute to stains and discoloration. You’ll also get peace of mind, knowing that your smile is healthy and strong.
In cases of moderate to severe gum disease, or periodontitis, we use Arestin to fight the infection. This local antibiotic is applied at the depth of your gum pocket in areas that are otherwise hard to reach. The antibiotic will continue to fight the infection for three weeks. When combined with deep cleaning, Arestin is an effective tool for treating gum disease and reducing pocket depths.
