We do bacterial testing of your mouth! This is so we know exactly what and how to fight, what we cannot see. Sometimes, no matter the degree, the disease can and does occasionally continue to get worse even with you doing your best. This is where we need to understand what may be occurring on a microscopic level inside the body. The results allow us to fight the infection inside by indicating the need and type of antibiotic to be prescribed for you to prevent disease progression. While we, as a team, continue to fight on the outside.
