Periodontal Treatments and Prevention
In certain cases, periodontal surgery may be recommended to treat periodontal disease when non-surgical treatment is effective. We may advise procedures such as pocket reduction, soft tissue grafts or bone regeneration to treat periodontal disease. If a tooth has been lost due to periodontal disease, dental implants are always an option for permanent tooth replacement.
Good oral hygiene and regular visits with your dentist and periodontist can prevent periodontal disease. Daily brushing and flossing can keep plaque to a minimum and, in conjunction with professional cleanings 2 – 4 times a year can keep your teeth healthy for life.
