Periodontal disease is caused by plaque build up. The disease is characterized by inflamed, infected gums, and affects the tissues that support the teeth, including the gums and bone. The goal of periodontal therapy is to remove plaque, eliminate bacteria, and reduce the inflammation.
There have been major advances in non-surgical periodontal treatment for chronic periodontal disease. Our state-of-the-art ultrasonic scalers have been designed by a periodontist for maximum effectiveness in cleaning the root surfaces of the teeth. Antibiotic gels, which are placed below the gum line, can curtail the growth of bacteria and reduce the need for periodontal surgery. And the latest innovation, a dental endoscope, is a camera that can be placed below the gum line, allowing us to see the root surfaces and tooth structures that would otherwise require surgery to be seen.
We take every opportunity to see that periodontal disease is able to be controlled without surgery. After these treatments, we reevaluate the health of the tissues supporting the teeth in order to determine how effective the treatments have been. If a surgical treatment is required, it will maximize your comfort and your ability to regrow any lost periodontal support.
