Periodontal Treatments

Gum disease is a bacterial infection that can result in damaged gums and ultimately, loss of teeth. When plaque builds up along the gum line, gums become inflamed and begin to pull away from the teeth. It is very important to remove the sticky film of plaque that forms on the teeth every day!

Gum Disease

Gum disease usually starts as a result of poor oral hygiene. Improper or irregular brushing and flossing will allow bacteria to collect below the gum line. Untreated gum tissue inflammation can cause bone loss that allows pockets to develop between the gums and teeth.

Scaling & Root Planing

Scaling and root planing or a “deep cleaning” is a non-surgical periodontal therapy that removes accessible calculus (tartar), bacterial toxins and etiological agents that cause inflammation to the gum tissue and surrounding bone. The goal of scaling and root planing is to eliminate disease and return the supporting structures of the teeth to a healthy state that can be maintained by home care and professional maintenance appointments.

Bone Grafting

The bone grafting procedure is required when the jawbone has deteriorated to the point where it can no longer support existing or replacement teeth. The jawbone holds the roots of teeth in place; your teeth depend on the integrity of the bone to keep from shifting when you bite or chew. When a tooth is lost, the bone, which no longer serves the function of holding the root, begins to erode until it creates a hollow cavity in your jawline.
