Non-Invasive Gum Disease Treatment

Are you infected with parasites?

Over 500 bacterial species have been identified in the oral cavity. Studies show a systematic presence of pathogenic parasites in patients with oral periodontal disease. These parasites live and thrive inside gum infections. With nearly 50 percent of the adult population suffering from some form of gum disease, chances are you too, could be infected with parasites.

Parasites are easily transferable and can infect individuals through:

  • Food and water
  • Kissing
  • Dogs
  • Travel to certain parts of the world such as the Caribbean

Gum Disease Parasites

We can determine whether a patient is infected with pathogenic micro-organisms using a microscope. Pathogenic parasites are very motile (actively moving) and defend themselves against our immune system. They release enzymes that can weaken and destroy the gum tissue and the tooth’s support bone. Eventually, the teeth may become loose, mobile, and even fall out.

Treating Gum Disease

By identifying the specific bacteria present in the mouth, Dr. Joseph Nemeth can eliminate them and help prevent the disease from reoccurring. With the help of lasers, antibiotics, and home care, we are able to control and eliminate gum infection and treat the effect of the disease (pockets). Regular microscopic assessments can confirm that the parasites have not returned.

Treat gum disease

Eliminating oral parasites can lead to a steady recovery from chronic and aggressive gum disease.

It can also eliminate the need for traditional surgical procedures.

Dr. Joseph Nemeth is the first periodontist in the state of Michigan to be trained and certified in Dr. Mark Bonner’s antimicrobial therapy. Schedule an appointment today to find out if parasites are infecting your mouth!
