Dentist in Chesapeake


Chesapeake DentistMany people think the greatest risk of gum disease is tooth loss. The reality is gum disease can affect more than your oral health. Recent studies have shown a link between the bacteria associated with gum disease and an increased risk of:

  • Diabetes
  • Heart Disease
  • Stroke
  • Certain cancers, including pancreatic cancer
  • Rheumatoid Arthritis
  • Complications controlling blood sugar levels in diabetes
  • Premature birth and Low birth weight babies

The good news? Periodontal disease is highly treatable –even reversible – helping you keep your teeth and your health in good shape for a lifetime



Treatment for Gum Disease

Dr. Brown offers a variety of technologies to make the treatment of periodontal disease more thorough and comfortable than ever before.

Antibiotic Treatment

Powerful antibiotics (Arestin and Atridox) are formulated specifically for the treatment of periodontal disease. These medications can be placed under the gum line to kill bacteria over time.

Oral DNA

Stop the dangers of periodontal disease before they start! Dr. Brown offers patients the benefits of Oral DNA Molecular Testing – the latest diagnostic system for periodontal disease risks.

This clinical test provides accurate information about the pathogenic bacteria in your mouth and your genetic susceptibility to these bacteria. This information allows Dr. Brown to develop a customized care and treatment plan to prevent any problems before they appear.
