gingivitis and gum disease prevention

gum disease & gingivitis treatment

Gum Disease including gingivitis and periodontitis, are serious infections that, left untreated, can lead to tooth loss. With good preventative treatment, gum disease can be controlled, often with simple oral and home treatment.

what to expect with treatments for gum disease

Periodontal treatment methods depend upon the type and severity of the disease. Your dentist and dental hygienist will evaluate for periodontal disease and recommend the appropriate treatment.

If the disease is caught in the early stages of gingivitis, and no damage has been done, one to two regular cleanings will be recommended. You will also be given instructions on improving your daily oral hygiene habits and having regular dental cleanings.

If the disease has progressed, more advanced cleaning, (deep cleaning) will be recommended. In this procedure, tartar, plaque, and toxins are removed from above and below the gum line and rough spots on root surfaces are made smooth. This procedure helps gum tissue to heal and pockets to shrink. Medications, special medicated mouth rinses, and an electric tooth brush may be recommended to help control infection and healing.

We’re committed to patient comfort throughout any and all procedures we perform, which is why we offer a range of sedation options. Consider learning more about our oral conscious sedation dentistry, a method which allows the patient to be awake throughout an entire procedure without experiencing any pain or discomfort.

We offer conscious sedation for all kinds of procedures, but its not the only type of sedation we can provide. To learn more about the sedation methods Moore & Pascarella makes available to patients, click here.
