Periodontal Care | Gum Disease
Gum Disease | At Mayani Dental Group, we provide world-class periodontal care and services for patients with gum disease. Gum health is more important than many realize. If left unchecked gum disease can lead to tooth loss. Ultimately, it can threaten your overall health, as well.
Although there’s no definitive cure for gum disease, it can be prevented. For instance, you can protect your gums and teeth with regular brushing and cleaning as well as with regular visits to our dental office. On the other hand, if you already have a serious condition such as gingivitis, this requires immediate emergency dental treatment to avoid irreversible bone and tooth loss.
Of course, the best defense against poor gum health is regular dental visits, along with consistent daily brushing and sound dental hygiene habits.
If you do have periodontal disease, there are several treatment options we can pursue. For example, we can use surgical or non-surgical therapy to reverse the effects of gum disease and avoid tooth loss. Whatever the severity, the dental team at Mayani Dental Group can create a personalized periodontal treatment plan suited to your unique situation.
In doing so, we’re able to help each patient achieve and maintain optimal periodontal health.
Sometimes patients who suffer from periodontis experience inflammation of the gums and receding teeth. When left untreated, periodontal disease can lead to severe infection and intense pain.
There is a common notion among patients that periodontal therapy requires surgery. However, that’s not always the case. In fact, patients treated in the early stages of gum disease respond well to nonsurgical periodontal therapy.
Only when the condition becomes severe is surgical intervention necessary. No matter the severity, Mayani Dental Group can provide a treatment plan that addresses any stage of periodontal disease. As a case in point, treatments aimed at limiting the advancement of periodontal disease may include scaling, root planning, and specialized deep cleaning or any combination of these options.
What to Expect During Periodontal Treatment?
Our periodontal treatment process typically begins with a recommendation to change your daily dental routine. If your condition is severe, we may use more advanced treatment methods like bite therapy, calculus removal, or surgical therapy.
We have perfected treatment to the extent that patients experience little if any pain. Patients who undergo the procedure at our local dental office can relax and even watch TV or listen to music during the procedure.
