Periodontal Disease Treatment

Periodontal Disease Treatment

Periodontal disease, also known as gum disease, is a condition in which the gums or tissues that hold your teeth in place become infected. Periodontal disease is often caused by a buildup of plaque (a thin layer of bacteria which builds up over time).

Periodontal disease can cause many undesirable symptoms and conditions including sore or bleeding gums, chewing difficulty, and eventually tooth loss.

Our compassionate dental professionals will work with you to prevent or remedy periodontal disease. Contact our office in Zephyrhills, FL today for more information.

Oral Cancer Screening

The inside of the mouth is normally lined with a special type of skin (mucosa) that is smooth and coral pink in color. Any alteration in this appearance could be a warning sign for a pathological process. The most serious of these is oral cancer.

We recommend performing an oral cancer self-examination monthly and remember that your mouth is one of your body’s most important warning systems. Do not ignore suspicious lumps or sores.

Periodontal Disease Treatment

Periodontal disease is an infection caused by the bacteria found in plaque, the thin biofilm that constantly forms around our teeth. In response to these bacteria, our immune system produces toxins. Unfortunately, these toxins also target our gums and other supportive tissues, resulting in the infection known as periodontal disease. Without treatment, periodontal disease can have serious consequences for your oral health.

Scaling and Root Planing

Scaling is a [non-surgical] deep cleaning measure that includes removing plaque from above and below the gumline. The root is also smoothened through planing to allow the tissue to heal and reattach itself to the tooth. Local anesthesia is applied to numb the targeted area and make the procedure much more comfortable. Antibiotics may be recommended as a means of controlling the toxic bacteria from spreading further that cause periodontitis.

Bone Grafting

Bone grafting can repair implant sites with inadequate bone structure due to previous extractions, gum disease or injuries. The bone is either obtained from a tissue bank or your own bone is taken from the jaw, hip or tibia (below the knee). Sinus bone grafts are also performed to replace bone in the posterior upper jaw.

Crowns and Bridges

Bridges and crowns are devices that fit over the existing tooth or implant and are cemented in place, by a dentist. Gaps left by a missing tooth can not only cause the remaining teeth to shift, but it can also lead to gum diseases and TMJ disorders.
