Periodontal Disease Treatment
Some common symptoms of periodontal disease are bleeding gums, bad breath, and many missed dental appointments. This is a serious infectious, inflammatory, and contagious disease that can be manifested in various ways. If you have these symptoms, you are in need of quick and effective treatment to eliminate the bacteria that is causing this disease. This bacteria collects on the tooth surface near the gums and can deteriorate gum tissue and bone, sometimes resulting in tooth loss. If the disease progresses without treatment, the bacteria can also enter the bloodstream via the gums and infect your other bodily organs. Watch the following video about the proposed link between cardiovascular and periodontal diseases. We can help you create a personalized treatment plan to eliminate the infection and keep the bacteria from reinfecting the area.
Treatment depends on the severity of the disease, but the following are all possible procedures.
1. Scaling and root planning, which involves the elimination of tartar and plaque below the gum.
