Control Gum Disease Naturally with Holistic Treatment

Periodontal disease impacts your overall health and has been linked to Alzheimer’s, dementia and diabetes. Over 50% of adults will deal with gum disease at some point, so it’s important to treat it early and holistically before it progresses and affects other body systems.

To keep you healthy, we offer consultations that look for gum disease and underlying causes.

At Coastal Periodontics, we believe in examining your overall health and treating you as a whole person. We explore the root causes of any symptoms you face rather than treating only the surface condition. We use a holistic approach to treat disease so your gums, mind and body stay healthy for a lifetime.

What Causes Gum Disease?

The buildup of plaque on your teeth can irritate your gums and create pockets that house harmful bacteria. This results in gum disease.

A number of factors contribute to gum disease, including genetics, environment, diet and other underlying health conditions.

How Do You Prevent Gum Disease?

While there is natural treatment for periodontal disease, prevention is the best cure. Taking care of your oral hygiene including brushing with a soft toothbrush twice a day and flossing once a day can help keep your gums healthy. Quitting smoking, eating a balanced, low sugar diet and getting regular dental cleanings can also promote your gum health.

We also offer periodontal maintenance services to prevent gum disease and the associated health risks. This keeps your gums in peak health and ensures that we can catch any signs of gum disease.

Natural Treatment for Periodontal Disease

When you visit our holistic practice to treat gum disease, you’ll get personalized, high-tech care. We start with a noninvasive salivary test, Oral DNA: MyPerioPath®, which identifies and quantifies harmful bacteria in your mouth.

Dr. Tredinick uses this information to catch problems early, customize treatment and plan follow-up care. She will examine the extent of your gum disease to determine what stage it is in and how best to treat it.

Often, Dr. Tredinick will treat gum disease with non-invasive laser and ozone treatments that eliminate bacteria and help you rebuild a healthy foundation for your gums and teeth. For example, our Laser-assisted periodontal procedure is a patient-friendly, minimally-invasive procedure that is a great improvement over standard gum surgery. It doesn’t use sutures or scalpels, speeding your healing time.

Herbal remedies are used to promote faster, natural healing. Dr. Tredinick recommends StellaLife VEGA® Oral Care. It’s a natural solution for pre and post-surgical treatment that can decrease the need for opioids and steroids. It contains an antimicrobial rinse, pain-relief spray and topical gel.

“Doctor Tredinick has been incredible. The staff is incredible, it fees like you belong here. Not just physical, but spiritually, emotionally, they’re here for you in whatever ways you need them. Always nice and calm, helpful and very knowledgeable.”

Explore Natural Ozone Therapy

We also offer ozone therapy, a completely natural way to maintain gum health. Ozone therapy uses ozone gas, a form of oxygen, to kill harmful bacteria with no side effects. It can prevent a bacterial infection and promotes faster healing when used with other treatments.

Ozone therapy uses no chemicals and is a natural way to regenerate your gums and teeth. It’s noninvasive and ideal for patients with dental anxiety.

Discover Platelet Rich Fibrin Treatment

While ideally we can treat gum disease without surgical methods, for some advanced stages of the disease surgery may be necessary. In these cases, you may benefit from platelet rich fibrin treatment. This treatment uses your own platelet rich fibrin, drawn from your own blood, to speed up the healing process and promote issue regeneration. This is especially helpful for older patients and has consistently positive results.
