Periodontal Therapy

We Take Care of More Than Just Your Teeth

Periodontal disease (also known as gum disease) is extremely common – in fact, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention found that nearly HALF of American adults have a mild to severe form of the infection. If left untreated, gum disease can result in tooth loss and even contribute to whole-body health problems such as strokes and diabetes. Early treatment is vital, and Dr. John Verbeyst and Dr. Philippe Morisseau can assist you here in North Kingstown, RI.

Our Periodontal Therapy Options Include:

  • Scaling and Root Planing – This in-depth cleaning removes bacterial accumulations from beneath the gum line and smooths the tooth root surfaces, which are likely targets for plaque.
  • ARESTIN® Antibiotic Therapy – This effective antibiotic is placed inside periodontal pockets following scaling and root planing. It continues to fight the infection and eliminate any stray bacteria over a period of several days while also reducing the size of periodontal pockets.

Contact Aesthetic Dentistry of Wickford to schedule a periodontal therapy appointment or if you have any questions about these services. We welcome patients and families from the nearby Rhode Island communities of South Kingstown, East Greenwich, Exeter, and beyond.
