Gum disease therapy

We can now offer OralDNA® tests to measure, evaluate, and monitor both periodontal disease and oral HPV.

  • The bacterial test determines the specific bacteria causing your periodontal infection. This helps select the therapy that will work best to treat the infection.
  • The genetic test can detect if you are more susceptible to severe gum infections. We can discuss revising your dental care routines to combat these infections.
  • The OraRisk® HPV Salivary Diagnostic Test can determine if you have oral HPV, and if it is a strain that puts you at increased risk for oral cancers.

Laser therapy can be used to treat gum disease with less bleeding, swelling, and discomfort.

Arestin® is a topical antibiotic developed to help kill the dental bacteria that cause periodontal disease.

Dr. Reeves will discuss every treatment and diagnostic option with you, but it is always your decision and you’re in control at all times of your therapies.
