Advanced Methods & Natural Remedies
Dr. Hendricks uses natural methods as much as possible to complement your treatment. He prescribes supplements and home care measures as well as antibiotics, depending upon your needs.
Dr. Hendricks may use a Bacterial DNA test to identifies the types of bacteria that are causing your infection, so that he can give you antibiotics and/or probiotics will work for you. It is done with an easy "swish and spit" sample collection that doesn't take very long.
Dr. Hendricks prescribes natural solutions such as eating a diet of hard foods such as raw foods, and supplements that have been shown to improve periodontal disease.
