Periodontal treatment is an investment in your health. Treating periodontal problems will help you achieve a healthy mouth and help prevent tooth loss. In fact, with prompt treatment, proper home care and regular dental visits, a great majority of patients can keep their teeth for a lifetime.
After evaluating your periodontal health, we will work with you to determine the treatment options that best meet your needs. If periodontal disease is the problem, the treatment can vary widely depending on how far the disease has progressed. If caught in the early stages, simple procedures are done that will remove the plaque and calculus from below the gum line and disrupt the infection-causing bacteria. If the disease has advanced to the point where the periodontal pockets are deep and the supporting bone is lost, further treatment might be necessary.
