Periodontal Disease: How to Maintain Your Teeth for a Lifetime
Periodontal Disease is one of the leading causes of tooth loss. Creating Dental Excellence feels it is our professional duty to continually evaluate our patients’ gums to help catch periodontal disease before the gums and supporting bone are severely damaged. This disease is caused by plaque, a sticky film that is always forming on your teeth. This plaque contains bacteria that produce harmful toxins. The bone and other tissues that support teeth are damaged if left untreated.
How Is Periodontal Disease Treated?
Non Surgical Treatment
The good news is that periodontal disease often can be treated with a deep cleaning called Scaling, root planning or non-surgical treatment. In this treatment, plaque and tartar are carefully removed from the tooth and bottom of each periodontal pocket. This procedure is done with a topical or local anesthetic to make the patient feel comfortable.
