Periodontal disease is the result of significant plaque build up. This disease negatively impacts the tissues that support the teeth, this includes gums and jawbones. Patients suffering from periodontal disease frequently report inflamed and infected gums.
The aim of periodontal therapy is to reduce such inflammation and eliminate infections by removing plaque and bacteria. And such treatment can now be done quickly and painlessly.
There have been a series of exciting advancements in non-surgical periodontal therapies for chronic periodontal disease. At Dobson Ranch Dental Care in Mesa, AZ, we employ state-of-the-art ultrasonic scalers that have been designed for maximum cleaning effectiveness of root surfaces. Special antibiotic gels are rubbed underneath the gum line to curtail further growth of bacteria and reduce the need for invasive periodontal surgery. And one of the newest innovations, a dental-specific endoscope, utilizes a camera that can allow dentists to see the root surfaces and tooth structures without the need for surgery.
At Dobson Ranch Dental Care, we believe that periodontal should be controlled without surgery wherever possible. We’ll work with you to oversee the health of your various oral tissues and determine which treatment will be most effective for you. Should surgical treatment be required, our friendly dental staff will work to maximize your comfort and expedite the healing process.
