periodontal therapy

Gum disease is treated by carefully removing the bacteria and substances that form in the pockets around the teeth. The removal of this material occurs on a microscopic level and requires great skill. Our dental team has had advanced training to effectively remove all of the bacteria.

What is Periodontal Therapy?

It is not a given that we must lose teeth as we age. With good oral hygiene and professional cleanings, our natural teeth can last for life. This also means caring for the teeth themselves, but also the structures around them. For example, if we maintain healthy gums, they will protect our teeth by sealing food away from them. Your gums and tooth-supporting bone are threatened by gum disease, which is a bacterial infection. The signs that you may not notice include bleeding, redness, and pain. When signs of trouble become visible, periodontal therapy may be suggested.

Gum disease can be a nuisance. It can cause tooth loss in the worst cases, and it can spread from the gums to the bone that supports teeth. Periodontal therapy, or gum treatment, can take different forms, but the goal is always to restore diseased tissues to health. There are many treatments for gum disease, most of which are effective. These range from deep cleanings that remove plaque and tartar to surgical repairs of lost gum and bone tissue. Periodontal therapy is a great way to keep teeth healthy and strong. It includes both surgical and non-surgical treatments to restore gum and bone health and prevent tooth loss. They include: Scaling and root planing are two important tools in controlling gum disease. Tartar is removed from under the gums to help prevent plaque and bacterial growth. Hand scalers and ultrasonic instruments remove loose tartar and calculus.

Gum grafting. Gum grafts are used to replace areas of lost gum tissue so that tooth roots are adequately protected. Healthy gum tissue is taken from one location in the mouth and transplanted to where it is needed.

Periodontal Plastic Surgery. The word “plastic” in this context refers to any reshaping procedure that improves the appearance of your gums and tissues, and it’s not limited to its traditional meaning as a material.

A periodontal laser treatment is a less invasive way of removing diseased gum tissue than surgery and can offer significant advantages over other treatments.

Crown lengthening surgery is a surgical procedure in which tooth structure below gum and bone tissue may need to be exposed. This may be done to change the appearance of your smile, either to make the teeth appear longer or to help with securing a new dental crown.

Replacing a tooth with a titanium implant is a more popular alternative than ever before. This implant is placed into your jawbone and under the gum line during a minor surgical procedure. The implant is then attached to a dental crown that can be seen above the gum line and does not look like a fake tooth at all, and is indistinguishable from a natural tooth.

Your role

There are a few ways to make sure your mouth stays healthy. The main cause of gum disease is dental plaque. You can remove this plaque every day with effective brushing and flossing. Make sure not to scrub your gums, though, as this can cause them to recede. With any questions about how to brush and floss properly, we'll be happy to demonstrate. You may have a thorough toothbrush and a clean mouth of teeth, but there are some spots of the mouth that still need a little more attention. That's why it's just as important to have regular professional dental cleanings at the dental office. In this new era, you might also want to consider teeth whitening or consult with your dentist on a way to fix that chipped tooth. If you want to have a great chance of keeping your teeth for life, it's important to eat a nutritious diet low in sugar and stay away from tobacco in all forms.

Frequently Asked Questions

Gingivitis is the first stage of periodontal disease. The inflammation and infection of the gums and bones that support the teeth causes swelling, redness, and bleeding. Periodontitis is the more serious condition that affects the gums. If left untreated, your gums can pull away from your teeth, bone might be lost, and your teeth might loosen or fall out. This disease is seen mainly in adults. Periodontal disease and tooth decay are the two biggest threats to dental health.
Issues with your gums can be addressed when you're in the earlier stages of gingivitis. If you catch the disease when it's in this stage, it's usually curable. However, if your gums are in periodontitis, then they can only be treated, not cured.
The most common reason for tooth decay is not brushing teeth often enough and not having dental cleanings by a professional. Unfortunately, this situation worsens with factors like genetics and smoking.
Treatment for tooth pockets usually involves cleaning the area around the tooth with a professional toothbrush. Advanced cases may require surgery.

Your Story is our story!

“In my 20 years of being here never have I walked into a more comfortable dental office than this one. The whole team is amazingly friendly and compassionate. I don't remember ever going to a dentist and feeling this cared for and comfortable. They truly want to save your original teeth and are not just looking to bill high procedures when they're not necessary. They deserve 6 stars.”

Haris V.

“My entire family has been going to Chamberlain Dental for years. The staff is very friendly and always helpful. Lisa (who does our teeth cleaning) is super gentle and explains everything she is doing from start to finish. Her procedures are always quick and painless. Janice (front desk) went out of her way to show me the proper steps for my at-home teeth whitening after my first two attempts alone failed miserably. And this was on a Friday afternoon, right before closing time. These are just 2 examples of how the entire staff goes above and beyond to make every visit pleasant. I highly recommend Dr. Chamberlain and his staff for all of your General Dentistry needs.”
