Our periodontal Disinfection is a comprehensive program that:

  • Integrates the treatment of periodontal disease and the enhancement of periodontal health. 
  • Utilizes antimicrobial therapy and the prescription of supportive antibiotics, alongside conventional scaling methods.
  • Is more comfortable and cost effective when compared to a surgical approach.
  • Improves periodontal health minimizing the risk of other medically related periodontal problems.
