Understanding Gum Disease:
Gum disease also called periodontal disease, is a common oral health concern that can lead to serious complications if left untreated. It begins with the accumulation of plaque and tartar, causing inflammation of the gums. Over time, this inflammation can progress, leading to pockets forming between the teeth and gums, ultimately putting at risk the stability of the teeth.
Our Approach to Gum Disease Therapy:
1. Thorough Diagnosis: Our journey begins with a detailed examination to assess the extent of gum disease. Using advanced diagnostic tools, we identify the specific issues affecting your oral health.
2. Professional Dental Cleanings: Routine dental cleanings play a pivotal role in preventing and managing gum disease. Our hygiene experts conduct thorough cleanings to remove plaque and tartar, promoting a healthy foundation for your teeth.
3. Scaling and Root Planing: For cases requiring a more targeted approach, our dental professionals may recommend scaling and root planing. This deep cleaning procedure eliminates bacteria and promotes healing of the gum tissues.
4. Antibiotic Therapy: To combat bacterial infection associated with gum disease, we may prescribe antibiotics in various forms. This targeted therapy supports the overall effectiveness of the treatment plan.
5. Lifestyle and Home Care Guidance: Achieving and maintaining optimal oral health extends beyond the dental chair. We provide practical guidance on at-home care, including proper brushing, flossing techniques, and the use of recommended oral hygiene products.
6. Regular Follow-Up and Monitoring: Our commitment to your well-being continues with regular follow-up appointments to monitor the progress of your gum disease therapy. Adjustments to the treatment plan are made as needed to ensure the best possible outcome.
