What is a non-surgical treatment for periodontal disease?
Periodontal disease is an infection that impacts the soft tissues of the mouth. However, if left untreated, it can become extremely damaging to the oral health of patients. This infection can cause the jawbone to shrink, resulting in adult teeth becoming loose or lost. The gum tissues also shrink, leaving more portions of the teeth exposed. These problems can be easily addressed with the use of non-surgical gum disease treatment.
What is done during a periodontal treatment?
Periodontal disease treatment with the team of the Maine Center for Dental Medicine in Skowhegan, Maine involves the use of:
- Quadrant scaling for removing plaque and tartar from all tooth surfaces
- Antimicrobial products for daily use at home when brushing and flossing
- The formulation of natural supplements to support the immune system
- Nutritional counseling with one of our professionals to ensure better overall health
- Continued visits to the practice for non-surgical periodontal treatment
Patients need to know that conditions that are extremely severe may still require gum surgery. Fortunately, with routine visits and examinations at our practice, patients can keep their infection under control and avoid the development of periodontal disease worsening into later stages. As soon as patients notice changes in their oral health, they need to be evaluated by their dentist to get a proper diagnosis and to facilitate appropriate treatment.
