Restore your Oral Health with Periodontal Therapy
Periodontal disease (also known as gum disease) is a common infection that affects the tissue and bone that support your teeth. While early signs of this condition are typically mild and can go unnoticed, untreated cases can result in severe consequences for both your oral health and your overall health. Your well-being is important to us, and we will perform in-depth periodontal evaluations and effective therapy when needed to ensure that your smile remains strong. Contact our local office today if you have any questions, and want to schedule an appointment.
How Do You Treat Periodontal Disease?
While more frequent teeth cleanings may be enough to combat gingivitis, patients who have progressed to the more advanced form will require more focused treatment. Scaling and root planing is a common solution, which consists of our team using special instruments to remove plaque and bacteria from beneath the gum line. We will also smooth and clean the roots of the teeth to prevent infections from recolonizing over time and promote healing.
