Dr. Burcham approaches Periodontal Therapy with the intent of maximizing the patient’s natural processes of healing. Our protocols developed over years of marked successes will include:
- Patient Education
- Hygiene Technique training
- Utilization of recent Technological advances. (Mechanical aids such as ultrasonic brushes or water jets and antibacterial rinses.)
- Elimination of the source of the bacteria. (key step) You will notice that none of these four categories involve surgery.
Sounds incredible but the fact remains that over 95% of our patients have dodged this surgical bullet. Periodontal Disease is curable and can be annihilated in healthy individuals.
