Unlocking the Power of Medication in Dental Care

The Role of Medication in Dental Care

Three Reasons to Consider Medication

Pain Management

Medication can provide relief from severe dental pain, making dental procedures more comfortable.

Medications like antibiotics help combat oral infections, preventing them from spreading.

Gum Health

Medicated mouthwashes and gels can reduce gum inflammation and promote overall oral health.

Medication as a Treatment Option for Dental Conditions

We understand that dental health is an integral part of your overall well-being. While our primary focus is on enhancing your smile’s aesthetics, we also prioritize your oral health. In some cases, medication can play a crucial role in addressing dental conditions. In this article, we’ll explore the role of medication in dental care and the various dental conditions that might benefit from this approach. 

The Role of Medication in Dental Care

Medication can be a valuable tool in managing and treating certain dental conditions. It is often used in conjunction with other dental treatments to enhance their effectiveness or alleviate associated symptoms. However, it’s important to note that not all dental conditions require medication, and its use depends on the individual patient’s needs and the nature of the condition.

Our Process -- And Yours

Non-surgical treatment, the method of choice for early-stage gum disease, essentially amounts to a deep, professional cleaning of the teeth that gets at the tartar under the gumline and includes the application of a local antimicrobial.

Vigilance (yours)
It's important to be vigilant for gum disease because it can be painless, revealing itself only when valuable treatment time has been lost.
1
Local anesthesia (if needed)
Root-planing and scaling clean down to the roots. We may use a local anesthetic to make you more comfortable.
2
Root-planing and scaling (deep-cleaning)
If diagnosed in the early stages, the preferred and more conservative (i.e., non-invasive) option is scaling and root-planing.
3
Anti-microbial application
We proactively apply an antimicrobial to the affected areas to kill and guard against any bacteria there that could pose a setback.
4
Ongoing home care and vigilance
You establish and make a habit of a rigorous home dental-health regimen that includes thorough brushing and flossing, and ongoing vigilance for flare-ups.
