Periodontal Care Treatments for Healthy Gums
Teeth get a lot of attention in dentistry, but at New Image Dentistry we know how important it is to take care of your gums! In fact, gum disease is the leading cause of tooth loss, but can actually be prevented with simple oral hygiene habits. Our experienced staff will teach you how to take care of your gums and prevent infection, as well as help you control gum disease that is already present.
If you have already been diagnosed with gum disease or any other periodontal complications, don’t worry! Our practices are equipped with advanced technology and the strategies needed to curb infection and restore those ever-important gums.
The stages of Gum Disease
Periodontal Maintenance, Scaling and Root Planing
Scaling and Root Planing
In order to reduce gum pocket depth and restore the health of your gums, we recommend scaling and root planing as a fantastic non-surgical option. In the early stages of gum disease, our doctors may suggest root planing and scaling therapy to clear plaque and tartar buildup below the gum line. Using advanced tools like Laser-Assisted Periodontal Therapy and ultrasonic devices to clean and polish the teeth, we can provide a smooth surface to which your gums can safely reattach.
After treatment, your teeth and gums will require more frequent periodontal maintenance cleanings to ensure the success of the procedure. These regular deep cleaning appointments will help to fend off further gum disease and maintain health below the gum line. If infection is a concern, your doctor may recommend prescription-strength oral care products for extra protection.
Our Proven Process: Comprehensive Procedure Education, from Start to Finish
At New Image Dentistry, we believe that a properly-educated patient is ultimately a happy one. Before you enter our office for periodontal treatment, our staff will make sure you understand what you need to do to prepare, and provide you with instructions for post-operative care.
We are happy to provide patients with a copy of our Proven Process for their procedures. This outlines the process from start to finish, so that our patients are fully-educated and able to take care of themselves throughout the healing process.
Periodontal disease is a very treatable gum disease that can be caused by many factors in your life. Many patients receive periodontal treatment and with proper education and homecare, they end up with very good results. Our Proven Process will walk you through the process timeline, as well as provide pre and post-op instructions for optimal success.
