Periodontal therapy is an advanced means of treating gum conditions such as gum disease. When changes to dental hygiene are not enough to prevent further damage or infection, Noble Smiles Dentistry may recommend periodontal therapy. Treatments vary depending on the seriousness of the condition. Scaling and root planing are examples of a general dental treatment used in periodontal therapy.
The aim of periodontal therapy is to stop the spread of gum disease and protect the gums, teeth, roots and bones. This essential treatment is designed to maintain your overall oral health. There are a number of risks associated with advanced cases of gum disease, such as the spread of infection and the loss of healthy teeth. Infections can originate in either the teeth or gums, spreading to other areas of the mouth.
Gum Infection Treatment
Treatment for gum infection is one of the most important procedures in dentistry. Your gums and bones are the support structures for your teeth. Infection of the gums can compromise other areas of the mouth and result in irreversible damage to teeth. With prompt and efficient treatment, there is no reason for you to lose teeth that are healthy. Noble Smiles Dentistry can provide a course of treatment to address gum infections and bring health back to your smile.
The length of treatment will depend on the severity of your gum infection. That is why it is so important to seek advice from Noble Smiles Dentistry as soon as you notice a problem. We want you to receive treatment at as early a stage as possible. Early treatments for gum infections are less invasive and will require fewer visits to Noble Smiles Dentistry.
Scaling and Root Planing
Most gum infections can be treated using a cleaning technique known as scaling and root planing. Treatment is carried out at our Noble Smiles Dentistry offices. We will clear up the infection and get you back to your ideal oral health in no time at all.
