Dr. Kirti Tewari can help to fight the bacteria associated with gum disease when he offers antibiotic treatment. Our dentist will use medication to reduce the high bacteria levels in your mouth in order to help you heal from this infection. Please contact our team at Kirti Tewari Dental PC if you need to receive a gum disease antibiotic treatment in Bronx, New York.
Periodontal disease causes many changes to the health of your mouth, including an increase in the levels of bacteria. These bacteria can not only make it more difficult for you to heal from this inflammatory infection, but they also increase your risk for heart disease, respiratory infection, and other problems. In order to reduce the bacteria count in your mouth, we offer antibiotic treatment.
There are several options for antibiotics that we may recommend for you. There are oral antibiotics that help to reduce bacteria levels in the entire body, and there are also topical antibiotic options that release medication directly to the gum tissue. We may use topical antibiotics in conjunction with a scaling and root planing procedure in order to improve its effectiveness. Please call our dental team today if you want to learn more about our antibiotic treatment.
