Dr. Chitra Hardikar uses oral microbiology to diagnose dental problems and create your treatment plans. This type of treatment is typically recommended to help manage gum disease and involves the use of oral pathology to determine the exact strain of bacteria or disease in your mouth so that our dentist can determine why conventional treatments are not working and improve your treatment plan. Oral microbiology may also be used to provide you with a custom mouthrinse to help improve your health.
