What is the treatment for Periodontal Disease?

Once your periodontal health has been evaluated, we will work with you to determine the treatment options that are best to arrest your disease and bring you back to health.

Depending on how far the diseases have progressed, treatment can vary widely. If caught in the early stages, simple procedures are done that will remove the plaque and calculus from below the gum line and eliminate the infection-causing bacteria. If the diseases have advanced to the point where the periodontal pockets are deep and the supporting bone is lost, further treatment might be needed.

Whatever the treatment may entail, the goal is to return you to good oral heath and then help you maintain it.

Benefits of periodontal treatment include:

  • Elimination / control of infection
  • Regrow lost bone tissue (bone grafts / regeneration)
  • Retain teeth
  • Fresh breath
  • A more youthful appearance
