Benefits of Periodontal Treatment

Periodontal treatment offers numerous benefits for both oral health and overall well-being. By addressing gum disease and restoring gum health, patients can experience:

  • Improved Oral Health: Periodontal treatment helps to eliminate harmful bacteria and inflammation, promoting healthier gums and preventing further damage to the teeth and supporting structures.
  • Prevention of Tooth Loss: Treating gum disease in its early stages can help prevent tooth loss and the need for more extensive dental procedures such as extractions and dental implants.
  • Reduction of Gum Disease Progression: Periodontal therapy can halt the progression of gum disease, preventing it from advancing to more severe stages that may require more invasive treatment.
  • Enhanced Aesthetic Appearance of Gums and Teeth: Healthy gums contribute to a more attractive smile, enhancing the overall appearance of your teeth and boosting your confidence.

Symptoms of Gum Disease

Recognizing the signs and symptoms of gum disease is essential for early intervention and successful treatment. Common symptoms of gum disease include:

  • Gum inflammation and redness
  • Bleeding gums, especially during brushing or flossing
  • Persistent bad breath
  • Gum recession and tooth sensitivity
  • Loose or shifting teeth

If you experience any of these symptoms, it’s important to schedule a consultation with our periodontal team for a comprehensive evaluation and personalized treatment plan.

How Does Periodontal Therapy Work?

Periodontal therapy typically begins with a thorough evaluation and diagnosis of your gum health. Our periodontists will assess the extent of gum disease and recommend the most appropriate treatment options, which may include:

  • Scaling and Root Planing: A deep cleaning procedure that removes plaque and tartar buildup from the tooth surfaces and below the gumline.
  • Periodontal Surgery: In cases of advanced gum disease, surgical intervention may be necessary to restore gum health and address underlying issues.
  • Laser Therapy: Advanced laser technology may be used to target and eliminate bacteria while promoting gum tissue regeneration.
  • Post-Treatment Care and Maintenance: Our team will provide guidance on proper oral hygiene practices and schedule regular follow-up appointments to monitor your gum health and ensure long-term success.
