Current research links uncontrolled periodontal disease to various overall health problems including heart disease, strokes, diabetes, cancer and other degenerative disease that can be life threatening.  There is no treatment that can "cure" your condition but will attempt only to control it.  It is important to know that home care recommendations is critical to immediate and long term control of your condition and that the doctor or hygienist can NOT control it by themselves.

Symptoms

  • Bleeding sites
    - Healthy gums don't bleed
  • Pockets >3mm
    - Healthy pockets are1-3mm
  • Recession sites
    - Healthy means no recession
  • Furcation sites
    - Healthy means no furcations

Diagnosis

  • Gingivitis
  • Early Periodontitis
  • Moderate Periodontitis
  • Advanced Periodontitis
 

THIS CONDITION REQUIRES:
Gingivitis Therapy — Treats surface infection of the gum that has not affected the bone.  Typically requires two appointments and use of medicated rinse.

Active Periodontal Therapy — Non-surgical deep treatment of diseased gum and tooth.  Typically requires several appointments with numbing as well as additional specialized instruments like a dental laser and/or antibiotics.  This treatment is always followed by Supportive Periodontal Therapy in 6 weeks and then every 90 days.

Supportive Periodontal Therapy — Periodontal disease is not reversible.  So, it requires specialized maintenance every 90 days to continually remove plaque and bacteria from severely affected areas.  This type of treatment as well as the appropriate frequency is critical to immediate and long term control of your periodontal disease.
