Fighting Gum Disease: A Comprehensive Approach to Oral Health
Gum disease affects millions of Americans, causing damage to soft tissues and resulting in tooth loss if not addressed promptly. At Sacramento Dental Medicine, we take a personalized approach to treat gum disease and restore oral health. Led by Michael Narodovich, DMD, our team is committed to offering comprehensive care to stop the advance of gum disease and save natural teeth.
Individualized Attention for Optimal Treatment
Each patient who comes to us for gum disease treatment receives personalized attention. We offer a multi-faceted approach that is designed to target and restore soft tissue damaged by bacteria. Our goal is to provide periodontal care for long-lasting oral health, both in our office and in the comfort of your home.
In-Office Care for Efficient Healing
Dr. Narodovich offers a range of procedures to address gum disease. Our dental laser treatments remove bacteria and sterilize sites affected by gum disease, promoting efficient healing and limiting patient discomfort. With this modern technology, healthy gum tissue may even grow back. For severe cases of gum disease, we apply antibiotics and antimicrobial rinses to minimize infection. Arestin®, a proven antibiotic, is applied after root planing and scaling to protect your gums from new bacterial infections, promoting increased healing.
Periodontitis Treatment for Natural-Looking Smiles
If gum disease has progressed to periodontitis, we provide treatment to reduce periodontal damage and repair tissue for a natural-looking smile. Our dentist and nearby periodontist collaborate to recommend the best treatment and fashion a long-term plan for improved oral health.
PerioProtect® for Healthy Teeth at Home
To restore your oral health at home, we offer PerioProtect’s medicine delivery system. The Perio Tray® is a custom-made appliance similar to a mouth guard that ensures periodontal medicine reaches deep into your gums. This convenient treatment allows patients to address their gum disease issues at home while doing chores or watching TV. Sacramento Dental Medicine provides both the custom tray and gum disease medicine based on your periodontal needs.
