There are many health risks associated with poor oral health care, such as periodontal diseases. These refer to serious infections under the gumline. An example of one such disease is gingivitis.

Not only will this affect your oral cavity, as you may lose teeth, but this infection can also contribute to heart and lung disease. This is why it is essential that treatment is administered as soon as possible, and that’s where we come in.

Here at Amazing Smiles, we use only the highest quality products on the market to ensure that our clients receive the best treatment. This why we rely on ARESTIN® (minocycline hydrochloride) when treating periodontal disease.

ARESTIN® is an antibiotic that kills the bacteria that causes the infection. Have a look at why this is our preferred choice:

  • It’s placed directly in the infected areas, or “pockets”, in your gums
  • It’s applied right after scaling and root planing, which is the dental procedure that disrupts stubborn plaque and bacteria below your gum line. This is where brushing and flossing can’t reach

Benefits

  • It starts working quickly, right at the source of infection and keeps fighting bacteria long after you leave the dental office 1,2
  • It fights infection and inflammation for 30 days,2 and provides significantly better results than scaling and root planing alone for up to 90 days3

Our well-trained team members are highly skilled at providing excellent service to our patients. Please contact us today to schedule an appointment or to find out more information about our approach to treating periodontal diseases.

“Best dentist experience I have ever had! The staff will treat you like royalty. They offer blankets if you’re cold and if you’re like me and super tense you can even get a hand massage! Dr. Lauvetz Enmeier even calls me personally after procedures to make sure I’m doing okay. Won’t go anywhere else!”
