Periodontal Disease – Treatment
Procedures – Periodontal Disease – Treatment
After the periodontal examination, your dentist and hygienist will recommend the best treatment plan. The condition and stage of gum disease will determine the periodontal treatment options.
The worsening of periodontal disease is caused by the buildup of plaque, tartar, and bacteria in the space between the tooth and gums, sulcus.
Ignoring these conditions destroy the gums and later the teeth’s supporting bone.
If the disease is diagnosed in the gingivitis stage, then regular cleanings are recommended. Instructions on improving at-home oral hygiene habits will also be given.
If the gum disease has proceeded into a greater stage, deeper periodontal cleanings are known as root planing and scaling will be suggested. One-quarter of the mouth at a time is the typical pace for the procedure. The area is numbed before removing the excess tartar, plaque, and bacteria. Beneath the gum line, scaling, and surface of the roots, planning, are deeply cleaned to minimize the size of the sulcus. To reduce the risk of infection and to promote healing, medications, oral rinses, and an electronic toothbrush may be prescribed.
Sulcus that fail to heal after the procedure, may require periodontal surgery. Your dentist may refer you to a periodontist, a dentist who specializes in diagnoses and treatment of periodontal disease as well.
Great service, great pricing and time-efficient.
What else can you ask for??
Work accident resulted in my front tooth being cracked in half, with an exposed root the pain was becoming unbearable. I’ve used this office in the pass for basic cleaning and checkups but nothing of this nature
I was in an accident resulting in multiple tooth fractures, a total of 7 teeth, were either chipped or cracked with some causing severe pain from the root being exposed. They worked well with my insurance company and were able to give me the beautiful smile I once had. Greatly Appreciated Paradise Dental
