Periodontal Disease Treatment
When You Need Periodontal Disease Treatment
Early signs of gum disease include red, swollen and/or bleeding gums. If detected early, you may be able to reverse early gum disease (gingivitis) with a deep teeth cleaning and proper at-home care. However, if gum disease progresses, deepening the pockets between your gums and your teeth (to 4 mm or deeper), you will need more intense periodontal disease treatment from your family dentist. The only way to assess what periodontal disease treatment is necessary is through a regular checkup.
Well-Rounded Periodontal Disease Treatment
At Davis Gribble Hollowwa Dental, our goal is to help you manage periodontal disease to maintain your oral and overall health. We do this by developing a comprehensive treatment plan, which includes:
Non-Surgical Periodontal Disease Treatment
Our dental hygienists will perform scaling and root planning (using local anesthesia) to completely remove all diseased tissue.
You can help manage your periodontal disease by removing bacteria through your daily brushing and flossing. You can also approach your at-home periodontal disease treatment by making sure you get the nutrients you need to fight off infection. Your family dentist can give you recommendations for a balanced diet and nutritional supplements as well as give you tips for improved dental hygiene.
If your periodontal disease does not respond to treatment, we may refer you to a periodontist for more advanced treatment. It is very important that you follow our recommendations for periodontal care to lower your risk of bone and tooth loss.
