Periodontal Therapy - Comprehensive Care for Your Gums

Periodontal therapy at Warrington Dental PC encompasses a range of treatments designed to combat gum disease and maintain the health of your gums, which are crucial for overall oral wellness.

What is Periodontal Therapy?

Periodontal therapy refers to treatments aimed at preventing, diagnosing, and treating gum disease (periodontitis). It includes various procedures from deep cleanings (scaling and root planing) to more advanced surgical treatments, depending on the severity of the condition.

What are the Signs of Gum Disease?

Common signs of gum disease include red, swollen, or bleeding gums, persistent bad breath, receding gums, loose teeth, and discomfort in the gums. Early detection and treatment are key to preventing advanced complications.

What Does Periodontal Therapy Involve?

Treatment may begin with non-surgical methods like scaling and root planing to remove plaque and tartar beneath the gumline. In more advanced cases, surgical procedures may be required to restore gum health. We also focus on educating patients about proper oral hygiene to prevent recurrence.

How Important is Periodontal Therapy?

Periodontal therapy is crucial for preventing tooth loss and other complications related to gum disease. It also plays a significant role in maintaining overall oral health, as gum disease can impact overall health conditions.

Can Periodontal Disease be Prevented?

Yes, with good oral hygiene practices, including regular brushing, flossing, and professional dental cleanings, periodontal disease can often be prevented. Regular dental check-ups are important for early detection and intervention.
