There are a variety of treatments available to help you manage and halt the progression of periodontal disease. When you visit our office, Dr. Smith will examine your mouth to determine the severity of your gum disease, and recommend one or more treatments to meet your needs. Some of the treatments that we may recommend include:
After you are diagnosed with periodontal disease, Dr. Smith and his team will determine the most appropriate treatment for your oral health needs. He will also consult with your General Dentist, depending on your condition. Your periodontal treatment may be non-surgical or surgical. If you have a milder stage of gum disease, Dr. Smith may recommend a non-surgical treatment option. Scaling and root planing (often referred to as Deep Cleaning) and regular Periodontal maintenance cleanings. Patients with a more severe condition may require surgical treatment, LANAP® laser therapy, soft tissue or bone grafting, or the Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique (PST) in order to regain healthy gum tissue.
Each treatment we provide will be tailored specifically to your individual needs. Our goal is to halt the progression of your periodontal disease and begin the process of restoring your oral health. We will also work with you to help you improve your oral hygiene routine at home and further reduce the risk of your gum disease continuing to progress or returning to your mouth.
