Periodontal Therapy

Periodontal disease is a very serious dental concern that affects many people in the United States. Periodontal disease often starts out as mild gingivitis, but if gingivitis is ignored and does not receive the proper treatment it will develop into periodontal disease. This disease is an infection of the structure of the teeth. Gums offer significant support to the teeth, keeping them secure and stabilized along the jaw line. When the health of the gums has been severely compromised, intervention is necessary to restore health to the gums and the entire mouth with our dental care services.

The earliest form of periodontal disease is gingivitis – a mild inflammation of the gums that causes them to be tender and to bleed easily. The best treatment for periodontal disease is early intervention and prevention. Gingivitis can generally be reversed and the health of the gums can be restored. However, when this gum inflammation turns into infection, periodontal therapy will be required in order to save the health of your mouth and prevent tooth loss.

Deep Cleaning, Scaling and Root Planing

Deep cleaning, scaling, and root planing are the most effective procedures for treatment of periodontitis. Bacteria inside the mouth can cause serious infection. While it is natural for bacteria to occur, proper brushing and flossing along with regular dental appointments can prevent disease from occurring. When these steps are not regularly applied to oral health care, periodontal disease can occur.
