Are you experiencing symptoms of gum disease? Call Fresno dentist Dr. Gregory Miyake at (559) 478-2235 to schedule an appointment todayA newly published study suggests polyphenols found in the wild lowland blueberry bush could help prevent the formation of plaque that leads to gum disease. This study adds to the growing body of research into alternatives to antibiotics and other more invasive treatments typically used to deal with this common oral health problem.

If you are suffering from any of the symptoms of gum disease, please call Fresno dentist Dr. Gregory Miyake at (559) 478-2235 today to schedule a comprehensive evaluation.

While research into alternative treatments for gum disease provide hope, many of these modalities focus on prevention more than treatment. Probiotics, polyphenols, and other natural options have shown to help prevent gum disease, but may not be as useful once the problem has manifested. Dr. Miyake offers safe and effective deep gum cleaning to deal with gingivitis and early-stage periodontitis. If you are experiencing symptoms such as red, swollen, or bleeding gums, Dr. Miyake would be happy to meet with you to discuss treatment options and future prevention methods.
