Periodontal Treatment | Campbell Station Dentistry

At Campbell Station Dentistry, we understand the importance of maintaining healthy gums for your overall dental health. Periodontal treatment is essential for managing gum disease and ensuring that your teeth remain strong and secure. Our experienced team is dedicated to providing top-quality care using the latest technology and techniques to treat and prevent periodontal disease effectively.

Understanding Periodontal Disease

Periodontal disease, commonly known as gum disease, is an infection that impacts the tissues supporting your teeth. It typically stems from poor oral hygiene, leading to the buildup and hardening of plaque—a sticky film of bacteria—on the teeth.

In its early phase, called gingivitis, gums can become swollen and bleed easily. Without treatment, gingivitis can escalate to periodontitis, a more severe form of gum disease that can ultimately cause tooth loss.

Signs and Symptoms of Periodontal Disease

Recognizing the signs and symptoms of periodontal disease is crucial for early intervention and effective treatment. Common symptoms include:

  • Red, swollen, or tender gums
  • Bleeding gums during brushing or flossing
  • Persistent bad breath
  • Receding gums, making teeth appear longer
  • Loose or shifting teeth
  • Painful chewing

If you experience any of these symptoms, it’s important to seek periodontal treatment promptly to prevent further damage.

Our Periodontal Treatment Services

At Campbell Station Dentistry, we offer comprehensive periodontal treatment services designed to address all stages of gum disease. Our goal is to restore your gum health and prevent future issues through personalized care and advanced treatment options.

Scaling and Root Planing

Scaling and root planing is a thorough cleaning procedure that targets plaque and tartar buildup below the gum line. This treatment smooths the tooth roots, reducing the risk of bacterial accumulation and promoting the healing of gum tissues.

Antibiotic Therapy

Sometimes, antibiotic therapy is used alongside scaling and root planing to combat bacterial infections. This may involve applying topical antibiotics directly to the gums or prescribing oral antibiotics to address the infection systemically.

Gum Grafting

For patients experiencing receding gums, gum grafting is an effective solution to restore the gum line and protect tooth roots. This procedure involves using gum tissue from another area of your mouth or a synthetic material to cover exposed roots and prevent further recession.

Pocket Reduction Surgery  

Also known as flap surgery, pocket reduction surgery aims to decrease the depth of the pockets that develop between the teeth and gums in advanced stages of periodontal disease. This procedure helps eliminate bacteria and tartar buildup, facilitating better oral hygiene maintenance.

Maintenance and Follow-Up Care   

Preventing the recurrence of periodontal disease is crucial for long-term oral health. Our team will work with you to develop a maintenance plan that includes regular cleanings and check-ups to monitor your gum health and prevent future problems.
