The treatment is a non-surgical procedure that requires a hygienist to thoroughly clean a patient’s roots and teeth to help heal inflamed or infected gum tissue. This treatment involves a series of appointments in which the dentist will numb certain areas of the mouth to be treated.
Periodontal disease stages
Periodontal disease is a disease that occurs in four stages:
There is only one time when the periodontal disease can be reversed, and that is in the initial stages. At this point, the bone has not yet been damaged. Gums that are bleeding are one of the earliest signs. Regular dental exams and routine dental cleanings, along with an at-home dental hygiene routine, can help treat it.
Slight Periodontal Disease:
Managing periodontal disease at the second stage will not reverse the problem. When bone is infected, periodontal disease will not respond to treatment. During scaling and root planing, the gums are deep cleaned, and bacteria are removed from the deep pockets.
Moderate Periodontal Disease:
Periodontal disease in the third stage becomes more advanced as the infection spreads further into the gums. There are various periodontal disease treatments we provide to remove your gum infection and thoroughly clean your gums.
Advanced Periodontal Disease:
Gum surgery may be necessary at the end stage of periodontal disease. Getting a cavity untreated can lead to tooth gaps, gum recession, and possibly even tooth loss.
In the end, treating periodontal disease as quickly as possible is vital to your oral health and the health of your smile.
