What types of treatment are available?

That depends on your individual condition. If periodontal disease is in its early stages, proper brushing and flossing, along with scalling and root planning, may be all that's necessary. If the disease is more advanced, you may require additional treatment. Scaling and root planning is a technique that removes plaque and tartar from below the gumline. Tooth root surfaces are cleaned and smoothed with specially-designed instruments. Other techniques may be used to treat periodontal diseases. For example, if gum recession has occurred, grafts can be used to prevent further recession. Or, if you have substantial bone loss around some of your teeth, there are special proven procedures.

How do I protect my oral health?

Following initial treatment, periodontal maintenance procedures (PMP) enable you to gain control of your oral health. Periodontal disease is unfortunately, a chronic disease. The key to control is early diagnosis with prompt treatment. Our PMP is a specialized treatment to protect the gums and bone that support your teeth.

Regular dental visits and cleanings following PMP will continue with your dentist. This will ensure optimum oral health and the highest quality care possible for your mouth.
