PERIODONTAL HEALTH

Is Your Teeth and Smile Safe from Decay?

Did you know that most people diagnosed with periodontal disease do not display any visible symptoms? That’s why regular dental checkups are crucial for early detection of any periodontal disease so your teeth and gums are in optimal health and no sign of decay can fade your smile!

What is Periodontal Health?

Periodontal health covers everything surrounding your teeth and gums. We specialize in diagnosing and treating periodontal diseases with multiple treatment options. We help prevent and cure gum diseases as well as assist in dental implants procedure.

Why Periodontal Health Is Important

Your periodontal health is crucial to prevent tooth loss and development of associated chronic diseases. Poor periodontal health can put you in the danger of the following diseases:

  • Periodontitis is an advanced form of gum infection caused by bacteria that damages your teeth’s soft tissues and weakens adjoining bones. This is a major cause of tooth loss. Periodontitis, if left untreated, can aggravate the risk of heart attack and stroke.
  • Gum Disease (Periodontal Disease) is the milder form of periodontal disease and occurs when plaque accumulates along the gum line. This is often marked with inflammation around the infected area and bleeding gums. Gum disease, if ignored, can develop into Gingivitis.

Common Symptoms Include:

Bleeding gums, red and swollen gums, persistent bad breath, pus between teeth and gums, or loose teeth.

How Our Periodontists Can Help You

Our periodontists will screen your teeth and gums for an accurate assessment of the underlying problems and offer you the best treatment option.

The initial screening procedure includes taking measurements around teeth, assessment of plaque, tartar, bleeding gums, infections and probing of bone loss with x-rays. This helps your periodontist determine the right periodontal treatment for you.

Periodontal Treatment Options…

Our professional periodontists use specialized cleaning procedures and therapies to make your teeth and smile last longer.

1) Scaling and Root Planing:

Scaling and Root Planing is the chief treatment option. Scaling and root planing are non-surgical dental procedures that a periodontist uses as a deep cleaning method.

Scaling involves scraping built-up tartar from the gum line using special dental instruments. Root Planing is concentrated on cleaning the hard-to-reach areas of the teeth. The procedure targets and removes the hidden plaque, tartar, and bacteria from underneath teeth and gum line.

2) Periodontal Surgery:

When periodontal pockets fail to heal completely from scaling and root planing, you may need periodontal surgery. It will speed up the healing process by means of stitching gums into place and reducing the pocket depth.

If you suffer from any of the symptoms of periodontal diseases, consult us as soon as possible for complete treatment. Seeking treatment early will improve your chances of reversing damage and preventing further health problems.
