Periodontal Therapy

Periodontal disease is gum disease that affects many people across the United States. It is a gum disease that has progressed into a very serious condition and requires specific and through treatment in order to save the teeth from infection and loss. While periodontal disease starts off as gingivitis, gums that are severely infected require intervention in the form of periodontal therapy. It is important to understand that your gums and jawbone can be seriously and permanently damaged by periodontitis, and this is not a condition that can be ignored. As part of our general dentistry treatments, we are pleased to provide expert periodontal therapy to patients who suffer from periodontal disease.

Deep Cleaning, Scaling and Root Planing

Bacterial infections along the the gum line and under the gums are the greatest cause of periodontal disease. Deep cleaning, scaling, and root planing are specific treatments done to help heal the mouth from periodontitis and repair the gums and teeth. These treatments are used to remove the bacteria-laden plaque and infection and to smooth out the root surface. Factors such as smoking and tobacco use, crooked teeth, dental appliances, hormonal changes, and certain medications can leave the mouth more vulnerable to periodontal disease.

Deep cleaning, scaling, and planing are done to remove damaging plaque from the gums in order to restore the health of your mouth.
