Periodontal therapy is ideal for patients who are at the early stages of gum disease. The non-surgical approach is a first stage in a series of interventions that get more involved as cases become more serious. If you have symptoms of gum disease like bleeding, swollen gums or consistent bad breath, you may be a candidate for Periodontal Therapy.
Periodontal Therapy is like an extreme teeth cleaning where the dentist cleans the plaque and scale from your teeth below the gum line. This can be uncomfortable and Dr. Beauchamp will share your sedation options for this procedure. Don’t let the fear of discomfort discourage you from this procedure, as it is much easier and more comfortable than the surgical options.
Enthusiastically, yes! We cannot stress how important gum health is to your dental health and your overall health. Periodontal Therapy is a relatively simple way for you to stop gum disease in its tracks, avoid more complicated treatments, and prevent future tooth loss. If you have questions about what to expect from this procedure don’t hesitate to reach out to our office.
Most patients have some idea when their gum health is declining. Healthy gums don’t bleed or swell during routine brushing and flossing. If you’re experiencing symptoms of gum disease, we can help. Contact our office to make an appointment and we’ll set you up with an appointment with our team to evaluate your gum health and create a plan to get you back on track.
