Periodontal health is very important and can be achieved through Non-surgical periodontal therapy. Oral hygiene will also help avoid the need for surgical periodontal treatments, but not caring for your teeth may lead to an extreme measure being taken to restore them.
Non-surgical methods mean the removal of tartar and plaque present below and at the gum line. Periodontal disease when in its early stage is easily treated this way.
Gum disease is a chronic infection resulting from bacteria working its way under the gum line. The bacteria then destroys the gum and eventually reaches the bone supporting the teeth. Regular dental cleaning might not work when the bacteria has firmly attached itself to the roots under the gum line.
You can have periodontal infections for years without experiencing any pain. Regular visits to your dentist can help you to identify the signs.
1.Swollen or red gums
2.Bleeding gums when flossing or when you brush
4.Chronic bad breath
Scaling is the first step and prepares for a more in-depth clean. Root planing involves cleaning the gum line to remove tartar deep from gum pockets and smooth the tooth root eliminating toxins.
Following a dental cleaning, it can be necessary to have medication placed under your gum line. It is beneficial to patients who have severe oral health issues. The drugs used are not adequate alone and don’t control long-term periodontal problems or patients that have deep gum pockets
Every patient has different oral health issues, so Dr. Holser will administer treatment on a case-by-case basis. Regular checkups are very important to make sure that Dr. Holser is able to detect these issues early on or prevent further progression of dental diseases.
