    • 55 year old man with bleeding gums and inflamed oral cavity, along with bad breath and tooth pain.

    • Fix crowns and remedy cavities.
    • If bad enough, prescribe antibiotics such as chlorhexidine gluconate or sodium fluoride.
    • Use “Scaling”, which is a process that gets rid of most of the tartar and plaque build up.
