Treating Periodontal Disease
There are a few different treatment protocols available for managing periodontal disease. Common periodontal therapies include specialized prophylaxis such as scaling and root planing, laser-assisted periodontal therapy, and surgical options like PST (pinhole surgical technique). The course of treatment a person receives will depend on their oral health history and the severity of his or her periodontal disease.
Our periodontist takes a number of factors into consideration when developing custom treatment plans for our patients. We strive to mitigate the damage caused by gum disease with treatments designed to manage the condition.
Why See a Periodontist?
Periodontists are experts at treating gum disease. In addition to earning a DDS, a periodontist completes rigorous education and training to practice as a specialist. Their education and experience ensure that periodontists are aware of the latest research, treatment protocols, and technology available for the treatment of periodontal disease.
Visiting our periodontist gives patients an opportunity to fight the periodontal disease with an expert. We are familiar with treating all forms of gum disease – especially progressive, complex cases.
