What is Periodontal Disease?
Periodontal disease, also known as gum disease or periodontitis, is a significant build-up of plaque and tartar that results in inflamed and infected gums. Not only can periodontal disease affect your oral health, but it can also have a considerably negative influence on your physical health as well. The goal of our periodontal treatments is to reduce inflammation and eliminate infection by removing all plaque and bacteria. Thankfully, this treatment can be performed quickly and painlessly.
How We Treat Periodontitis
Periodontitis can be effectively treated without the use of surgery, as long as it is caught early-on. Therefore, we highly recommend a comprehensive cleaning and exam every six months. With exciting new advancements in the periodontal field, our professional periodontist uses the methods below to eliminate all signs of periodontal disease in our patients:
- State-of-the-art ultrasonic scalers designed for maximum cleaning of root surfaces.
- Special antibiotic gels rubbed underneath the gum line to curtail further growth of bacteria.
- Dental-specific endoscopes that utilize cameras, allowing a periodontist to see root surfaces and tooth structures without the need for surgery.
