Understanding and Combating Periodontal Disease for Lifelong Dental Health
What is Periodontal Disease? At Creating Dental Excellence, we recognize the importance of educating our patients about periodontal disease, a significant factor in oral health and one of the primary causes of tooth loss in adults. This condition, often unnoticed in its early stages, can lead to severe consequences if not addressed promptly.
Periodontal disease begins with the formation of plaque, a constantly forming sticky film on your teeth composed of bacteria. These bacteria release toxins that can irritate and inflame the gums, leading to gingivitis, the earliest stage of periodontal disease. If left untreated, gingivitis can progress to periodontitis, where the gums and bone that support your teeth become seriously damaged.
How We Detect and Monitor Periodontal Disease
As part of our commitment to your oral health, our team at Creating Dental Excellence conducts thorough evaluations during your visits. We use advanced diagnostic techniques to monitor your gum health, identifying signs of periodontal disease early. Our proactive approach allows us to address potential issues before they escalate, helping you maintain healthy teeth and gums.
Treatment Options for Periodontal Disease Fortunately, periodontal disease can often be treated effectively without surgical intervention. One of the primary methods we employ is a deep cleaning procedure known as scaling and root planing. This non-surgical treatment involves the meticulous removal of plaque and tartar from the tooth surface and the depths of each periodontal pocket.
During this procedure, we prioritize your comfort. A topical or local anesthetic is used to ensure a pain-free experience. Our skilled dental professionals work gently yet thoroughly, cleaning below the gumline where regular brushing and flossing can't reach.
Importance of Regular Dental Check-Ups Regular dental visits are crucial in preventing and managing periodontal disease. These check-ups allow us to spot any early signs of the disease and take immediate action. Remember, early detection and treatment can save your teeth and gums from severe damage.
