Periodontal Therapy

 

 

Periodontal therapy aims to maintain the health of your smile by preventing and treating gum disease. Latest researches have found a strong correlation between periodontal health and your over-all health as well as their importance in controlling chronic conditions like Diabetes. Reflection Dental Spa's cutting-edge methods help you achieve optimum oral hygiene with minimal discomfort.

Scaling & Root Planning

Scaling and root planning treat deep below the gum line to remove the bacteria infection.
These special cleaning procedures attack the embedded debris, infection, and bacteria that cause gum disease.

The Laser: A New Approach to Gum Disease

The first line of defense against gum disease is to maintain a regular hygiene program or soft tissue program. New laser technology has been developed and approved by the FDA to treat this disease. The low power of the Laser light kills the pathogenic bacteria for up to three months (according to the leading periodontal journal).

 

Laser Assisted Periodontal Bacterial Reduction

Periodontal disease affects roughly 80% of adults and continues to increase. At Reflections Dental Spa we will educate you on exactly what periodontal disease is. Periodontal disease is a bacterial infection in the pockets around your teeth. We not only remove mechanical irritants and diseased tissue during your regular dental cleaning, but we are now addressing what causes the infection. The use of the laser is painless.

Reflections Dental Spa recommends that you include laser treatment to your regular cleaning or root planing appointment for several reasons:

  • •  To reduce or eliminate bacteria.
  • •  To avoid cross contamination of infections in one area of your mouth to another.
  • •  To destroy periodontal disease bacteria and stop the infection before it causes physical destruction or loss of attachment of your teeth.

ARESTIN- Local Antibiotic Delivery

At Reflections Dental Spa, we recommend adding ARESTIN ® (minocycline hydrochloride) Microspheres, 1 mg to scaling and root planing ( SRP ) procedures because this combination treats periodontal disease more effectively than Scaling and Root Planing alone. ARESTIN® is an effective antibiotic treatment that comes in powder form. This powder is easily placed inside infected periodontal pockets just after the dental professional finishes the scaling and root planing ( SRP ) procedure. The Microspheres are filled with the antibiotic minocycline, and they release the drug over time into the infected periodontal pocket, killing bacteria that live there for up to 21 days. ARESTIN® Microspheres continue to fight the infection for up to 21 days after SRP . In clinical studies, ARESTIN® has been proven to be more effective than using SRP alone. ARESTIN® also significantly reduced the size of periodontal pockets compared to SRP alone, killed the bacteria most commonly associated with periodontal disease, and reduced bleeding on probing of the gums.

 

Oraqix

Oraqix ® brings effective, needle-free anesthesia for adult patients during scaling and/or root planing procedures. Oraqix ® is the first and only FDA approved needle-free subgingival (below the gumline) anesthetic indicated for use in adults requiring localized anesthesia in periodontal pockets during scaling and/or root planing procedures.   Oraqix ® avoids patients' needle anxiety by using a blunt tip applicator & dispenser  instead of a syringe !
