Periodontal Disease and tooth decay are treated by non-surgical, nutritional, and oral hygiene techniques that are extremely effective in controlling oral disease. These therapeutic home care techniques can control periodontal (gum) disease and tooth decay by destroying the parasitic biofilm that hides under the gum line. This sticky biofilm can only be controlled by mechanical intervention. Mouth washes, toothpaste, and antibiotics are ineffective in penetrating bioflims. However, with proper training - brushing, flossing, and using sonic and ultra sonic devices are extremely effective in controlling these microorganisms. This tailor made program can control disease in most cases.
Nutritional recommendations can help restore the gum and stop dental caries (decay) in its tracks. Dr. Mele tailor makes a program to your individual requirements. Recommendation for surgical procedures is always a last resort and in most cases avoidable.
