Waugh Chapel Dental

Focused on Your Smile!

Periodontal therapy is a crucial aspect of dental care offered at our office, focusing on the treatment and management of periodontal disease, commonly known as gum disease. This condition affects the gums and bone supporting the teeth and, if left untreated, can lead to tooth loss and other significant health issues. Our comprehensive periodontal therapy services are designed to halt the progression of gum disease and restore oral health.

Understanding Periodontal Therapy

Periodontal therapy encompasses a range of treatments tailored to address the various stages of gum disease, from gingivitis to advanced periodontitis. The therapy aims to clean the pockets around teeth and prevent damage to surrounding bone. Treatment options may include deep cleaning (scaling and root planing), medication and, in more severe cases, surgical interventions to restore supportive tissues.

The Periodontal Therapy Process

  • Diagnosis: Utilizing advanced diagnostic tools, our dentists will assess the health of your gums and the extent of periodontal disease.
  • Customized Treatment Plan: Based on the diagnosis, a personalized treatment plan is developed to address your specific needs.
  • Deep Cleaning: Non-surgical treatment like scaling and root planing removes plaque and tartar from below the gum line.
  • Advanced Treatments: For advanced cases, surgical options may be recommended to regenerate lost bone and tissue.
  • Maintenance: Following treatment, we will guide you on proper oral hygiene practices and schedule regular follow-up visits to monitor your gums.
