Periodontal (gum) disease is a degenerative condition caused by the harmful bacteria trapped in plaque. These bacteria inflame and infect the gum tissues, eventually leading to gum recession, bone loss and tooth loss when left untreated.
Our skilled dentists and team offer several treatments for periodontal disease to help fight the harmful bacteria in your mouth and begin restoring your oral health. We will check for signs of gum disease during each of your regular dental exams. If you are diagnosed with this condition, we will work with you to help you understand your treatment options and create a personalized treatment plan.
There are several options that may be recommended depending on the severity of your gum disease. Some of these treatments may include additional professional cleanings, scaling and root planing (deep cleanings), antibiotic treatment or gum surgery. Your treatment plan may include several different types of treatments in order to provide you with the maximum results. We will also review your oral hygiene at home and make recommendations on ways that you can improve it to reduce the risk of developing a more severe infection.
