Guided Biofilm Therapy
Guided Biofilm Therapy is the systematic, predictable solution for dental biofilm management in professional prophylaxis using state of the art AIRFLOW®, PERIOFLOW® and PIEZON® technologies. ... The treatment is given in the least invasive way, with the highest level of comfort, safety and efficiency.
Pamela has been using this new to you treatment for the past 2 years and the results have been amazing! Patients love how comfortable their visits are and feel the results of a healthy mouth immediately. It's like a spa for your mouth.
Bacterial Reduction Therapy
Bacterial reduction therapy can be delivered in several ways. A diode laser can be utilized to deliver a beam of infrared light into the area where the bacteria thrive. The special wave length of light kills the bacteria leaving your mouth healthier and bad bacteria free. Ozone therapy is a treatment that significantly reduces the presence of oral bacteria. What makes Ozone so interesting as a natural antibiotic is that it kills bad bacteria in the specific site of application and leaves healthy bacteria to continue doing its good work. Both have absolutely no pain or negative impact to you.
Detailed Oral Assessment
Perio Protect Trays
Fighting gum disease requires vigilance and repetition. Fortunately, it doesn’t always require surgery.
The innovative Perio Protect Method® utilizes patented, non-invasive Perio Trays® that are proven to deliver treatment deep into periodontal pockets, where toothbrushes, rinse and floss fail to reach.
These customized trays end the cycle of disease by extending treatment from the dental chair to the comfort of home.
Biofilm is a thin, slimy layer of bacteria that adheres to surfaces in the mouth such as the tongue, gums and teeth. By utilizing a microscope, together we can assess what type of pathogens reside in your mouth making each treatment recommendation personalized.
This is a no fee service included with each appointment to keep track of the health of your mouth.
Oral Bacterial Testing
We have millions of bacteria present in our mouth. We identify the type of bacteria with the microscope. We go even further to identify the specific bacteria by utilizing bacterial testing. A sample is collected and sent off to a stateside lab that will not only identify the bacteria but report the level of bacteria so a personalized preventative plan can be developed specific to your individualized result.
