Periodontal Disease Treatment

Ensuring optimal oral health is a top priority at our dental office, and if you're dealing with periodontal disease, rest assured that our skilled team at Allen Heights Dental is here to provide comprehensive and effective treatment. Here's a detailed overview of the periodontal disease treatment procedure you can expect at our office.
Initial Assessment
Your journey to combatting periodontal disease begins with a thorough examination of your gums, teeth, and overall oral health. Dr. Nigudkar will assess the extent of the disease, probing for pockets, checking for signs of inflammation, and capturing any necessary X-rays.
Treatment Planning
Based on the assessment, a personalized treatment plan will be crafted to address the specific needs of your case. This plan may include a combination of non-surgical and surgical interventions, depending on the severity of the periodontal disease.
Non-Surgical Treatment (Scaling and Root Planing)
For mild to moderate cases, non-surgical interventions are often the first line of defense. Scaling involves the careful removal of plaque and tartar from above and below the gumline, while root planing smoothens the tooth roots to discourage the accumulation of bacteria.
Antibiotic Therapy
In some instances, antibiotics may be prescribed to control bacterial infection and promote healing. These medications can be delivered topically or orally, depending on the specific requirements of your treatment plan.
Surgical Intervention (if necessary)
For more advanced cases, surgical procedures such as flap surgery, bone grafts, or tissue regeneration may be recommended to restore damaged tissues and promote gum health.
Ongoing Maintenance and Follow-up
Following treatment, regular follow-up appointments are crucial to monitor progress and maintain oral health. Our team will provide guidance on proper oral hygiene practices and schedule professional cleanings to prevent a recurrence of periodontal disease.
Patient Education
Throughout the process, we prioritize patient education. Our team will equip you with the knowledge and tools needed to maintain optimal oral health at home, reducing the risk of future periodontal issues.
