Based on your saliva test results and after your periodontal therapy, we want to ensure your mouth is on the optimal path to wellness. At Complete Health Dentistry of Columbus we utilize the "test, treat, repopulate" method, as outlined by the DHE Method.
Step 1: Test - Saliva Testing
Step 2: Treat - Periodontal Therapy
Step 3: Repopulate - Oral Probiotics
Most people are familiar with the probiotics you take for your gut health, to starve out the bad bacteria in your gut and to add new healthy bacteria to aid in digestive health. The same method holds true for your mouth! Your mouth has an entire microbiome in itself, called the "oral microbiome." Based on your saliva test results and the specific bacteria we are fighting against, your dental team will recommend a targeted oral probiotic. This probiotic mint starves out the bad bacteria in your porous tooth surfaces, your tongue, and in the pockets of your gums, helps maintain a natural balance of bacteria necessary for oral wellness. It will also freshen your breath and whiten teeth overtime!
The Importance of Oral Probiotics
The in-office treatment is just the first step towards optimal oral health. We will create a personalized treatment plan for you that is critical for treatment of your infection, of which may include targeted home care products.
Complete Health Dentistry of Columbus utilizes the innovative Perio Protect Method. Perio Protect utilizes patented, non-invasive Perio Trays with a customized sealing system that is proven to deliver medication deep into periodontal pockets, where toothbrushes, rinse, and floss fail to reach.
