All of us at Northwood Dental wish everyone the best of health and safety in these challenging times.
As part of the Governor's mandate and the recent Pinellas County 'safer at home' initiative, our current hours of operation have been adjusted and many of you may have already been contacted to postpone your dental services.
Other patient services are still being provided in an altered schedule designed for the safety of you, our patients, and for the safety of our Northwood Dental personnel.
We remain ready to care for your dental concerns and are making attempts to send out personalized communications regarding all present and future appointments.

noninvasive gum disease treatment With The Side Benefits Of fresher breath and whiter teeth.
Learn More About The Perio Protect Method® Benefits (Simple Explainer Videos and Images Provided Below)
Brushing, rinsing and flossing are important. But these efforts fail to reach deep below the gum line where bacteria thrive—in pockets and crevices around edges of the gums.
Traditionally, deep cleanings, known as scaling and root planing, or surgery have been required to reach deep into the pockets to treat advanced gum disease.
Scaling involves numbing the gums then scraping and smoothing the tooth surface to remove bacteria to prevent it from re-sticking to the root where it infects the gum.
Surgery traditionally requires cutting the tissues to lift a flap to be able to clean the root surfaces. Often, these processes must be repeated over multiple visits. It can be frustrating, painful and invite harmful bacteria back into the new wounds.
Antibiotics are sometimes prescribed to fight bacteria. Immediate results can be promising, but they are often only temporary. And over-prescription of antibiotics can compromise their long-term efficacy.
The Perio Protect Method® offers a new way to address some of these issues.

For others, it can be a potent compliment to traditional treatment methods, helping to ensure a more successful outcome.
