Gum Disease: A Common Concern with Serious Consequences

Periodontal disease, also known as gum disease, is a common dental condition affecting millions of people worldwide. It is marked by inflammation and infection of the supporting tissues surrounding the teeth, including the gums, periodontal ligament, and alveolar bone. If left untreated, gum disease can cause tooth loss, bone deterioration, and other systemic health problems.

Scaling and Root Planing: Thorough Cleaning Where Brushing Can't Reach

Our periodontal dentistry services include scaling and root planing, periodontal maintenance, and gum surgery. Scaling and root planing is a non-surgical procedure used to remove plaque and tartar buildup from below the gum line, where regular brushing and flossing cannot reach. We use ultrasonic instruments and hand instruments to remove the bacterial deposits, and root planing to smooth out the rough spots on the roots of teeth, reducing the ability of bacteria to attach itself.

Periodontal Maintenance: Taking Care of Your Gums Post-Therapy

Periodontal maintenance is a follow-up cleaning treatment that we provide to patients who have had periodontal therapy or gum surgery. This procedure is similar to a regular teeth-cleaning appointment but involves a more in-depth cleaning of the gums and teeth.

Advanced Procedures for Restoring Gum Health

For advanced cases of gum disease, it may require gum surgery procedures, such as pocket reduction surgery, gum grafts and bone grafts. These procedures are designed to help restore the health of the gums and the bone that supports the teeth, preventing further damage and tooth loss.

Our periodontal dentistry services are tailored to the unique needs of each patient, and we work closely with you to design a customized treatment plan that suits your condition, lifestyle, and budget. We are committed to providing exceptional periodontal care with compassion and professionalism.

At Modern Dental, we believe that good oral health is the foundation of overall health and well-being. Contact us today to schedule an appointment and experience the difference in our periodontal dentistry services.
