Our Periodontal Services and Procedures
Gum disease is incredibly common, yet many people pay no attention to it until it becomes serious. At King of Prussia Periodontics & Dental Implants, we provide advanced periodontics to help Pennsylvania patients suffering from all levels of periodontal disease. Our comprehensive treatments work to resolve gum disease and repair the damage, restoring you to a healthy, natural smile.
The appropriate treatment will depend on the severity and development of your periodontal disease. After a thorough examination, we determine the appropriate treatment to revitalize your oral health.
Common treatments for periodontal disease include:
- Periodontal Deep Cleaning: This cleaning focuses on treating the gums, and may include antibiotic treatments and root scaling and planing procedure.
- Root Scaling and Planing: This procedure goes below the gum line to remove tartar built up on the root surface. First, we get rid of tartar from the root and flush the area to eliminate bacteria. We then smooth out the root, giving the gums a better hold to reattach to the root and secure the tooth in place.
- Pocket Reduction: With advanced gum disease, pockets of bacterial infection can form beneath the gum line. In cases where these pockets have deepened, a surgical procedure may be needed to reduce the pockets and reattach the gums to the teeth and bone. We eliminate the bacteria with a targeted antibiotic treatment, then use pocket reduction to reposition the gum tissue and encourage healthy gum growth.
- Gum Grafting: Periodontal disease can cause the gums to recede, exposing the tooth root and increasing your risk for tooth loss. Gum grafting restores the natural gum line, securing your teeth and preserving the natural aesthetic of your smile.
