Periodontal Treatment- Miami & Coral Gables
Healthy Gums - Healthy You!
When it comes to safe and effective periodontal treatment, Miami and Coral Gables residents can rely on the office of Dr. Hank Barreto.
We can't emphasize it enough: oral health is vitally connected to whole health. Because your health is so important to us, we offer holistic periodontal disease treatment for our Miami and Coral Gables patients. We get straight to the root of the problem, and we start every new patient with a visit and evaluation with our hygienist. Why? Because healthy gums are the foundation of a healthy mouth.
Taking a Holistic Approach to Periodontal Disease in Miami
For gum disease treatment, Coral Gables-based Dr. Hank Barreto is skilled at providing whole-body care that adequately meets your needs. We rely on non-toxic materials and methods to treat your mouth without introducing harmful additives, with a holistic approach that offers big benefits over traditional dentistry.
Health is our focus so taking care of periodontal problems is how we begin dental treatment with our new patients. Without your gums to hold your teeth in place, your smile would be nonexistent, so healthy gums are the first step to complete oral health.
Surgical and Non-Surgical Treatment Options
A variety of new technologies, such as ultrasonic scalers, make the treatment of this disease more thorough and comfortable than ever before. Periodontal disease presents itself with a build-up of bacteria in the pockets in your mouth, plaque and tartar. One of the first steps in cleaning and healing your gums is to remove the buildup with our ultrasonic scaler.
If we detect infection, we will apply an antibiotic solution directly into the pocket after it's been scaled and planned to promote healing. We might feel that it is necessary to prescribe a course of oral antibiotics to further combat the infection. Once the source of infection has been removed, your gums will begin to heal, and tighten around your teeth.
From gum maintenance to periodontal surgery, Miami and Coral Gables patients can rely on Dr. Barreto and his team to provide safe care. Contact us today to schedule your first appointment.
