Can Your Regular Dentist Treat Your Gum Disease?
Posted on 8/24/2020 by Ronald Watkins
Can Your Regular Dentist Treat Your Gum Disease?If you have gum disease, a regular dentist can spot it and stave off further development. However, you need to contact our periodontal team to treat the disease. With the care of a periodontal specialist, you can attack the problem and treat it more effectively.

What a Regular Dentist Can Do


If you suspect gum disease, a regular dentist can usually diagnose it and give you a professional cleaning. However, he or she will usually recommend that you see a periodontist for further treatment. Whether you have gingivitis (the early stages of gum disease) or a more advanced form of gum disease (periodontitis), our team of periodontal professionals can assess the condition and give you customized care.

How We Can Help


When you receive our periodontal services, we will measure the pocket depth of your gums. This assessment shows us the health of the gingival tissue so we can make the proper diagnosis. We also provide deep cleanings, such as scaling and root planing. When we clean the teeth using this technique, we use a special tool to get rid of the hard plaque (tartar) and newly formed plaque, reaching down to the bottom of the periodontal pocket. This is done to remove both plaque and tartar as well as harmful bacteria. We also plane the roots to smooth them so the gum can reattach itself to the tooth. By visiting our office, all your periodontal needs can be met in one place. You can receive total periodontal care, including bone grafts, gum flap surgery, or gum grafts, depending on the severity of your gum disease.

Have you had your gum health checked? Are your gums bleeding? If so, now is a good time to schedule a complete periodontal exam (CPE) with our professional periodontal staff. Contact us to receive direct specialty services. That is the best way to ensure the future health of your teeth and gums. Call our periodontal team now for an appointment.
