Different Methods of Gum Disease Treatment

There are several methods of gum disease treatment that an Orlando dental center can offer. Among them are scaling and root planing, laser-assisted new attachment procedure (LANAP) and Periodontal surgery. The right treatment for you will depend on your individual needs. While it’s important to take care of your teeth and gums so gum disease doesn’t develop, sometimes it’s unavoidable.

Scaling and Root Planing

During scaling and root planing, your gums will be cleaned. This procedure is often painless but it can cause some swelling and sensitivity. However, these symptoms are temporary and will fade in a few days. If left untreated, gum disease can progress and cause extreme tooth decay and other diseases that can evolve into a real problem.

Because gum disease can be a symptom of a systemic condition, the treatment plan you choose will depend on your overall health. In severe cases, deep cleaning may be necessary as part of a larger treatment plan. Speaking with an Orlando dental center is important when you’re trying to determine what form of treatment you need. 

Scaling and root planing are two types of deep cleaning procedures that your dentist will use to treat periodontal disease. The first involves removing plaque and tartar from the gums. This process is known as the gold standard in treating chronic periodontal disease. By cleaning your teeth and the pockets around them, scaling and root planing can prevent serious damage and help you maintain a healthy smile in the long run.

Periodontal Surgery

The goal of periodontal surgery is to restore gum and bone tissue. It may involve using growth factors to restore bone tissue. The procedure also involves folding back the gum tissue to expose deeper tissues. In some cases, irregular surfaces of bone may need to be smoothed out to expose bacteria.

Depending on the procedure, patients may experience pain, swelling, and swelling for a few days. During the initial recovery period, patients should avoid strenuous activities. They may also be instructed to drink plenty of water and take pain medication. Antibiotics may also be prescribed by the surgeon. After the surgery, patients should avoid smoking and chewing hard foods.

Periodontal surgery can be a minimally invasive procedure. It improves the aesthetics of a smile, and the function of teeth. It can even correct a tooth that is missing or has been damaged by gum disease. To make sure that you have optimal gum health, it’s important to schedule regular dental checkups. If you have any questions, don’t be afraid to ask your dentist.

1st Impression was great. Front office ladies, work together. The Waiting area a little tight space for CoVid19 distancing, but managable with calling patients back with little to no wait time. My Hygienist (Diana) has been great. I appreciate her attention to detail. Very informative. Thx.

Honest Review: Serene Dental is amazing! Amy was my dentist and she is a sweetheart and always makes me feel good when I am nervous. They performed a deep gum cleaning and it was so easy and I recommend coming here. I don’t like other dentist offices.
