What Is Periodontal Therapy?
Periodontal disease (also known as gum disease) is a continually worsening dental infection that develops in a diverse population of patients every year. As a consequence of destructive dental bacteria, gum disease begins as gingivitis, which is inflammation of the gums caused by plaque buildup. When it is left untreated, gingivitis leads to periodontitis, which is an infection that harms the gumline and bone structures. If the condition progresses to advanced periodontitis, patients can experience severe problems, like tooth loss. At Awesome Smiles, Dr. Tracy Provenghi specializes in the latest methods to address periodontal disease at any stage. Contact our El Paso, TX dental practice to set up your evaluation today.
What to Expect from Periodontal Therapy
Diagnosing and treating periodontal disease as early as possible may stop the deterioration and preserve your health. If you experience symptoms, like puffy or red gum tissue, bleeding while brushing and flossing, or persistent foul breath (often known as halitosis), periodontal disease could be affecting your oral health. At Awesome Smiles, we have comprehensive screenings (such as oral x-rays) to identify the existing stage of gum disease and will develop the correct route for treatment. The primary stage of gum disease, gingivitis, is typically treated through a thorough cleaning and consistent at-home dental hygiene. To manage periodontitis, the middle level of gum disease, scaling and root planing (SRP) treatments are done along with applying topical antibiotics. Later-stage instances of periodontal disease may be treated through a surgical option, including flap surgery and jawbone grafting methods.
