Periodontal disease is a chronic bacterial infection of the gums and the bones supporting the teeth which is caused by a certain bacteria found on the teeth and the spaces between the teeth and gums. Why is diagnosing gum disease and getting appropriate treatment important? Because if left untreated, the disease can progress and result in tooth loss. Also, research has shown that gum disease may have an effect on other serious health conditions. (Flossing alone has been shown to increase the average life span by two years)! This means that having regular dental check-ups and any needed treatment for gum disease is important for both your mouth and for your overall well-being.
Compounding allows countless active ingredients to be incorporated into customized mouthwashes, gels, troches, etc. For example, to treat periodontal disease, antibiotics can be formulated as a mouthwash, or added to an oral adhesive paste or a plasticized gel that will maintain the contact between the tissue and medication for a prolonged period of time.
