Lakeland, FL (PRWEB) September 07, 2016
Dr. Frederick D. Thurston now offers advanced gum disease treatment to new patients seeking relief in Lakeland, FL and the entire Polk County, with or without referrals. As with any infection, the inflammation and soreness in the oral cavity experienced from gum disease may require an effective antibiotic to target bacteria, and to this purpose, Dr. Thurston often recommends Arestin® to promote healing and rapid recovery. Dr. Thurston’s state-of-the-art dental practice, Thurston Comprehensive Dental Center, is located in Auburndale, FL.
Early signs of gingivitis include red, tender or bleeding gums, and a person in the early stages of gum disease in Lakeland, FL, may experience pain while brushing and flossing. Visiting an experienced dentist at this stage to remove the plaque and tartar from the surface of the teeth and roots is the easiest way to prevent bacteria from causing more serious damage. However, many people merely hope the issue will clear up on its own, or worse, forgo dental hygiene habits as they become more painful to perform. An individual who continues to delay treatment may notice the gums pulling away from the roots of the teeth, as the infection spreads and the delicate structures sustain more damage. Even worse, bacteria are able to enter the bloodstream through the wounds in the gums, which has been linked to the cause of systemic diseases such as stroke, heart disease and diabetes.
When treating gum disease in the Lakeland, FL area, Dr. Thurston understands the importance of removing the infection to reduce the chances of its return. Performing scaling and root planing to target the calcified deposits below the gum line is an essential part of treatment, and this procedure may be even more effective if it is enhanced by a cycle of the antibiotic Arestin® that attacks bacteria. A patient is less likely to need frequent follow-up visits when treated with this medication.
