Our team here at Summit Dental has found that the best way to treat periodontitis is to prevent it. Come in for your regular 6 month dental cleanings, brush and floss your teeth, and use a mouthwash. If you do this we will be able to detect early signs of gum disease and begin a treatment plan quickly and prevent further damage.
We understand that it is not always possible to prevent periodontitis. In this case we have options to help treat your gums and help them return to their healthy state.
Periodontitis Treatment options
Dental cleaning is one of the best ways to treat periodontitis especially if you have had trouble with gum disease in the past. This will help prevent further issues.
Another treatment option is scaling and root planing. When patients have mild periodontitis it may be important to have this procedure. It involves removing plaque and tartar from the tooth surfaces and root. This will help destroy the harmful bacteria that is causing the issue.
