Important Information about Periodontal Disease
Periodontal disease (also referred to as periodontitis or gum disease) strikes people of all ages throughout the U.S. Unfortunately, periodontal disease is quite common. This painful condition, often indicated by inflamed, painful gums, can lead to tooth loss or more serious issues. That’s why it’s vital to have gum disease treated as quickly as possible after it’s diagnosed.
Depending on your situation and the severity of your condition, Dr. Robertson may recommend any one of several treatments for periodontal disease. As is the case with many conditions, the best treatment of all is to prevent the disease from developing in the first place. That is one of the reasons why it’s so important to visit your dentist regularly for exams and professional cleanings. No matter how diligent you are with your own oral hygiene routine at home, you’ll never be able to totally remove all plaque and tartar, which can lead to gum disease if it’s not removed.
Types of Periodontal Disease Treatment
Fortunately, there are several procedures that can effectively treat periodontal disease. Which one is most effective for your situation depends, to a great extent, on how advanced the condition is. A thorough exam by Dr. Robertson will be the first step in determining which type of treatment is best for you. Some possible periodontal disease treatments include:
- Scaling and root planing
- Dental implants
- Tissue regeneration
- Pocket elimination through surgery
