Periodontal Wellness Program
Hear at Rohrer Dental wellness center we offer a very progressive gum treatment protocol . Utilizing bacterial dna testing ,we are able to test for the bacteria that put you at risk for developing gum disease.
We call this our crystal ball. In the past, we waited for the loss of bone on x-rays and deep pockets to occur to recommend care .
We now have the ability to prevent that from ever happening.
Because Our treatment is based on the make up of the oral bacteria in your mouth we also for the first time have a very objective “end point” to treatment.
The treatment protocol is different than what we’ve done historically. The old style of treatment would involve doing a deep cleaning and then putting our patients on a three-month re-care to monitor
The new protocol involves treating the infectious disease from the I”nside out” as well as from the “outside in”
from the inside out we look at what the patient is taking in terms of supplementation and nutrition. This is critical for the body to be able to fight the infection that is present
Next we look at how we can rebalance the bacterial environment in the mouth. We recommend oral probiotics with good bacteria to counter the bad bacteria that are present.
we still do the deep cleanings but we include with the treatment the use a laser, which assist in the cleaning of the pocket ,as well as in the healing process
once we’ve gone through this protocol we then retest the bacteria to make sure that everything is in balance, This is the end pint that was not present in the past.
