Gum Disease Treatment At Our San Francisco Dental Office By Mohamed Ali, DDS
At Dr. Mohamed Ali’s San Francisco practice, oral health is our primary concern. Our practice is the only certified Center for Dental Medicine in San Francisco, and we continue to stay up-to-date on the latest technology and treatments to provide quality care to our patients.
We understand that periodontal therapy is not just a treatment of the mouth, but the patient as a whole. We treat the “whole patient” with multiple facets that allow for successful periodontal treatments. The key behind our success lies with our combination of hygiene treatments, laser technology, and vitamins.
In addition, we use the latest dental technology to help our patients achieve their best results. Dr. Mohamed Ali may recommend that patients use PerioProtect to control periodontal disease in the convenience of home. Through this process, science and art combine to deliver the best results for our patients.
The Cost of Gum Disease Treatments
With Dr. Mohamed Ali’s “Whole Patient” approach to periodontal treatments, a patient’s smile can stay healthy for years to come. Laser technology, oral hygiene techniques, and vitamin regimens can make a tremendous difference in the health of a smile, but what are the costs of periodontal treatments?
While the fees associated with periodontal treatments depend on a patient’s individual treatment plan and needs, our San Francisco team will work with you and your dental insurance provider to navigate the costs. In addition, we are here to answer any questions that may arise about the costs and payment types for our periodontal treatments and procedures.
Gum Disease Home Treatment
For patients who need periodontal treatments, it used to mean that the majority of treatments had to be performed in-office. Periodontal treatments can make a dramatic difference in a patient’s oral health, and can prevent periodontitis and gum disease from worsening.
Today, Dr. Mohamed Ali offers a variety of effective periodontal treatments that can be used in the convenience of a patient’s home. Some of these treatments include:
- PerioProtect- this periodontal treatment system uses trays that extend to the gum area. The trays are worn a few times a day for 10-15 minutes, and a special gel is inserted into the tray. The gel releases oxygen, which in-turn can kill anaerobic bacteria. This is a simple, yet effective way for a patient to control periodontal disease with some of the latest technology available.
- Floss- this is another simple way to help treat and prevent periodontal disease. Taking the time to learn to floss can reach the areas that are affected most by periodontal disease.
- Quit Smoking- smoking is one of the top correlations to periodontal disease. To learn more information about how you can quit smoking for your oral health, contact Dr. Mohamed Ali.
- Take Control of Your Oral Health- visit Dr. Mohamed Ali regularly to ensure that your periodontal health remains in excellent shape. Dr. Mohamed Ali can discuss other periodontal treatment options with you that are performed in-office.
Oral health is the window to the rest of your health. To learn more about how you can maintain your periodontal health from home, and to learn about Dr. Mohamed Ali’s other in-office procedures, contact our San Francisco office today.
