Periodontal treatment is a crucial aspect of dental care at DC Family Dental. This specialized treatment focuses on the prevention, diagnosis and management of periodontal disease, ensuring the health of your gums and the supporting structures of your teeth.

Benefits of Periodontal Treatment
Effective periodontal treatment offers several significant advantages:

  • Prevention of Tooth Loss: Treating gum disease early helps prevent the progression of the condition, which can lead to tooth loss.
  • Improved Oral Health: Healthy gums are essential for overall oral health, reducing the risk of infections and other dental issues.
  • Enhanced Aesthetics: Managing periodontal disease can improve the appearance of your gums, making your smile look healthier.
  • Better Overall Health: Research links periodontal health to overall health, indicating that treating gum disease can positively impact conditions such as heart disease and diabetes.

Types of Periodontal Treatments
We offer a range of periodontal treatments tailored to your specific needs:

  • Scaling and Root Planing: A deep cleaning procedure that removes plaque and tartar from below the gum line and smooths the root surfaces to promote healing.
  • Periodontal Maintenance: Regular cleanings and checkups to monitor and maintain gum health, preventing the recurrence of periodontal disease.
  • Laser Therapy: Advanced laser technology to remove infected tissue and promote the regeneration of healthy gum tissue.
  • Surgical Treatments: In more severe cases, surgical interventions such as flap surgery or grafting may be necessary to restore gum health.
