The fact that the basic cause of all periodontal disease is the body’s over-reaction in response to bacterial infection from plaque buildup has created a great deal of research into antibiotic therapies that can help to eliminate the disease.

Dr. Heinrichs may recommend Antibiotic therapy as an adjunctive therapy in addition to conventional root planning, scaling treatments with regular dental visits along with an individual homecare plan

At Eagle Ridge Dental Centre we provide a variety of surgical services. We pride ourselves on the fact that we are very conservative in our treatment recommendations and limit surgery to the areas where it is absolutely necessary.

Many times, the early stages of periodontal disease are best treated with non-surgical periodontal therapy. Even in severe cases, non-surgical periodontal therapy often precedes surgical therapy. This is done to improve the overall tissue quality prior to surgery and also to help limit the areas requiring surgery.

Dr. Heinrichs will do a complete assessment of your periodontal health and discuss if Antibiotic therapy will benefit you.
