Biological Periodontal Therapy
A healthy mouth is the foundation of a beautiful smile. It is also crucial to overall health, as ongoing research continues to demonstrate. We take a comprehensive approach to removing infection, which minimizes the risk of recurrence, while maintaining your optional safety and comfort.
The traditional method of treating periodontal (gum) disease is simply to clean the teeth and roots; if that fails, perform surgery. At Palmer Distinctive Dentistry, we begin with thorough cleaning, followed by innovative laser and ozone treatments. This method eliminates the bacteria that cause gum disease, without surgery.
Laser therapyLaser technology utilizes the power of light energy. Although the procedure is essentially painless for most patients, local anesthetic may be used to ensure your complete comfort. Light energy is delivered through a small fiber, placed between the teeth and gums. Laser therapy is gentle and comfortable for you, but deadly for bacteria.
Ozone therapyContrary to popular misconception, ozone is not a toxin or a pollutant. It is a naturally occurring energized form of oxygen – it's what paints the sky blue, and shields us from harmful UV rays. When introduced to the body it improves blood flow, stimulates natural immune defenses, and facilitates more rapid healing.
When ozone is applied, it causes what is known as a transient oxidative burst. This reaction is harmless to you, but kills infective microorganisms such as bacteria, fungi, viruses, and protozoa. Ozone therapy is used in the treatment of periodontal disease, as well as root canal procedures. It can be injected to treat infection in the bone. We have experienced phenomenal results from ozone treatment, eliminating infection, reducing healing time, and even promoting bone recovery for some patients.
Oral hygieneYou already know that brushing and flossing are essential to prevent disease, and keep your mouth healthy. However, these steps are not always adequate, and are difficult for some patients. When you visit Palmer Distinctive Dentistry, ask about additional ways to improve oral health.
Hydro Floss – This hydromagnetic oral irrigation system is designed to complement flossing, or be used as an alternative if necessary. Two separate double-blind studies have proven that this system reduces calculus 44 to 64 percent.
Dental Herb Company® – This is a full line of dental hygiene products (antiseptic mouth rinse, antiseptic gum irrigant, toothpaste, and breath freshener), made from organic or wildcrafted tinctures and essential oils. They are free of alcohol, sweeteners, and chemical preservatives.
