Your Family Dentist in Kingman, AZ


Have you been diagnosed with periodontal disease, but you're dreading the procedure to treat it? The Perio Protect Method™ may be the solution for you. Perio Protect® has been a leader in minimally invasive dentistry since 2005 with a new method that offers people the most gentle, yet effective way possible to fight the bacteria that cause gum disease.

You may not know it, but studies show that 8 out of 10 adults in the U.S. have some form of gum disease. This disease is known as the "hidden disease" or, as former Surgeon General, David Satcher referred to it, "the silent epidemic." It is hard to see the bacteria and the problems they cause hidden below your gums, but the problems can be serious.

Patients report that their mouths feel cleaner EVERY DAY when using this method as prescribed, and the side benefits have included whiter teeth and fresher breath. What is Perio Protect?

Perio Protect® is a comprehensive method that is customized for individual patients to help manage biofilms, communities of bacteria, growing in the spaces or pockets between teeth and gum tissue. The overall goal of the Perio Protect Method™ is to manage oral biofilm with minimally invasive dentistry for lasting oral health.

Tooth Replacement

If you have lost or missing teeth you may wish to consider a dental bridge or implant from Bryan K Carlson DMD. Having one or more missing teeth can have a serious effect not only on your smile, but also on your dental health.
Specifically, missing teeth can cause:
  • A shift in the alignment of your teeth 
  • Increased risk of periodontal disease 
  • Increased risk of tooth decay 
  • Loss of adjacent teeth

Replacing missing teeth involves choices.  Bryan K Carlson DMD takes time to explain the pros and cons of all your choices including bridgework, partial dentures, implants or full dentures.

Oral bacteria causing infections in gum tissue may threaten more than your teeth and gums. Research has established associations between oral bacteria and systemic diseases including:
  • Type 2 Diabetes 
  • Heart Disease 
  • Respiratory Disease 
  • Blood Clots 
  • Strokes 
  • Preterm and Low Birth Weight Babies 
  • Chronic Inflammation 
This method includes tray delivery of doctor-prescribed solutions to gently and comfortably debride or remove biofilm from the periodontal pocket and alter the pocket’s microbiological environment to disrupt biofilm growth.

Restorative Dentistry

Depending on the type of treatment you have received for your dental problem, it might be necessary to
  • Have your tooth restored to its original size and shape
  • Supply additional physical support for the treated tooth
  • Get a complete "makeover" on the affected tooth

Bryan K Carlson DMD will help you decide if a bonded white filling or a crown is best for you.
