Biological Periodontal Therapy
Biological Periodontal Therapy and hygiene visits
Periodontal therapy refers to treating the gum, supporting tissue, and bone structures. A healthy foundation is needed for your ability to keep your teeth throughout your lifetime. Periodontal disease is a sub-clinical disease, often having very few symptoms until teeth become loose.
Dr Mirkal emphasizes the nonsurgical periodontal treatment when applicable. This treatment includes pocket debridement (removal of damaged tissue and foreign objects) with lasers, ozone gas insufflations, localized medicaments, and scaling and polishing.
Periodontal disease is a systemic disease that needs an experienced doctor to make sure body has adequate tissue building blocks in the form of minerals, nutrients, and gut health.
Phase contrast Microscopy
Only a handful dentists in the country use a microscope to evaluate periodontal health, and Dr. Mirkal is one of them. At Prime Integrative Dentistry we use a microscope to look into your oral microflora. This is something we do at every new patient and hygiene check visit.
