Non-Surgical Periodontal Therapy

The status of your gums is of utmost importance to your health and wellbeing. The correlation between the plaque in the mouth and the plaque around the heart has well been established. This alone makes it so important to establish good oral hygiene for each patient in our practice.

Non-surgical periodontal treatment includes a comprehensive periodontal evaluation to determine your bone levels, periodontal pockets and bleeding indexes. The treatment options for your gums include dental cleanings to periodontal scaling and root planning.

If it is important for all patients to have two dental cleanings during every year. For our patients who have more advanced periodontal needs, it may be necessary to have four cleanings per year.

If the periodontal condition requires more attention due to the destruction of the bone and gum tissue, deep scaling and root planning may be required. The mouth is divided into four sections. Each section is scaled and root planned under anesthesia in order to restore the gums to optimal health.
