Periodontal therapy treats gum disease
Our office implements a strong Soft Tissue Management program which is individually designed to help each and every individual eliminate bacterial infection of the gums and root surfaces, and take preventive actions to reduce and treat periodontal disease. Periodontal disease is a bacterial infection of the tooth supporting structures that causes irreversible bone and gum tissue loss, and eventual tooth loss. We offer scaling and root planning, pocket irrigation with medicaments, and soft tissue diode laser in order to focus on the tartar and plaque that is below the gum line. The process detoxifies the root surfaces, and flushes out the pockets to allow for healthy reattachment of the gums to the root surfaces. Most importantly, we stress follow-up re-care appointments and strict home-care instructions. Our specially trained dental hygienists will carry out these procedures in our practice.
