We realize that 1st In Smiles is widely known as the go-to place for cosmetic dentistry solutions in the Plano, TX area, which is great, but what new patients should know is that we are also the perfect place to take care of any restorative dentistry needs, including gum disease treatments.
For today’s blog post, we wanted to share a video link from the good folks over at the American Dental Association, in which they explore how gum disease treatments normally work. Besides the scaling and root planing that they talk about, we might also be able to use Atridox® in your case. This is an antibiotic that we place directly in the infected gum pockets. It will release slowly over a period of several days as it gets rid of your infection and heals your gums. In any event, check out the clip below then be sure to contact us to schedule your consultation with Dr. Barfield.
