Eighty percent of adults suffer from gum disease, or periodontitis, and many of them don’t even know it. Gum disease has been linked to all kinds of other health problems including heart disease. Dr. Antalis uses OralDNA screenings to diagnose gum disease, and may then prescribe an antibacterial treatment. She offers either Perio Protect or Arestin. Not all cases need antibacterial treatment, but no matter what, the team at OHIOSmiles will help you develop habits that lead to a healthy mouth and gums for many years to come.
