Periodontal Therapy helps control gum disease through a series of 2, 4, or 6 non-surgical dental visits. Remember: Healthy gums never bleed!
Why Is Periodontal Therapy Necessary?
In its early form, periodontal disease is known as gingivitis - a treatable condition without lasting effects on your oral health. When left untreated, it may lead to periodontitis, a condition characterized by increased plaque and bacteria in your mouth.
When periodontitis occurs, your gums start to recede, exposing your teeth and causing them to become loose. In advanced cases, the bacteria can erode the bone and cause your teeth to fall out.
Periodontal therapy helps prevent these complications. Using routine dental cleanings, Dr. Nick will get rid of all the calcified plaque and tartar deposits on your teeth to ensure optimum oral health.
