Periodontist Treatment

Periodontal Treatment Is Available

A periodontist can give you the caring, comfortable, state-of-the-art periodontal treatment you require to take care of your most pressing dental needs.

Our gums say a lot about our oral health, so if they are bleeding, red or tender, they may indicate the presence of untreated, undiagnosed periodontal (gum) disease. Without proper treatment, this type of condition will only worsen. In time, you could end up losing one or more of your teeth or suffering from chronic bad breath and experiencing bleeding when eating or drinking.

At Dental Specialty Associates, a periodontist regularly helps patients get the periodontal treatment necessary to keep gum disease from worsening or spreading to other areas of the mouth. Some of the most common periodontal treatments a periodontist performs include:

  • Scaling and Root Planing
  • Osseous Surgery / Flap Surgery
  • Gum Grafting
  • Periodontal Maintenance

All the staff in this dental clinic both at Phoenix and Gilbert are extremely courteous and caring. Folks, if you need any dental care this is the best place for you to go.

Periodontal Procedures

Periodontal Maintenance

For patients who have been diagnosed with periodontal disease, being on a maintenance treatment plan can prevent further problems. It will also keep the affected areas clean and disease-free.

Scaling and Root Planing

When periodontal disease occurs, pockets form between the gums and the teeth. These pockets are an invitation to bacteria; therefore, the periodontist will clean them thoroughly through scaling and root planing, and then attempt to get the gums to re-adhere to the teeth, thereby closing the pocket.

Gum Grafting

During this type of surgical procedure, gums that have receded are repaired using gum grafts. New technologies make gum grafting a safe procedure for the right candidates, and give patients the look and function of healthy gums.

Osseous Surgery / Flap Surgery

Osseous or flap surgery treats the teeth that have been damaged due to periodontal disease. During the procedure, a periodontist will thoroughly clean the teeth below the gum line of plaque and tartar and trim away excess, diseased gum tissue.
