Explore Options For Nonsurgical Periodontal Treatment
Tredi Dental strives to help you achieve periodontal health with the least invasive approach; therefore, we offer a full range of non-surgical treatments. Non-surgical treatment includes the removal of bacterial tartar and plaque that is present below your gum line without the use of scalpels or lasers.
Unfortunately, every patient is different and non-surgical therapy will not function in the same way for everyone. In some cases, it is necessary to conduct periodontal surgery to restore your periodontal anatomy damaged by disease.
The Tredi Dental team encourages you to discuss any questions that may arise regarding your dental health, and we are happy to provide detailed information on all of our non-surgical periodontal procedures and treatments.
Scaling and Root Planing for Gum Disease
Scaling and Root planing are usually performed using ultrasonic scalers or micro-surgical instruments. Scaling consists of removing the tartar (calculus) and bacterial plaque from the teeth above and below the gum line. Then root planing begins and your dentists will smooth out the rough spots in teeth where germs like to hide and multiply to help your gums reattach to your teeth.
Although these procedures might not be completed in only one trip to the office, dentists agree that you will not require additional treatments following them. Your ongoing maintenance and care post surgery is necessary for the optimum results.
To halt the spread of gum disease and help kill bacteria, an anti-bacterial medicine can be applied to the area below the gum line during or after the scaling and root planing procedures.
Ozone therapy is a minimally invasive procedure that utilizes natural gas to eliminate bacteria from the gums. It requires no recovery time and is an ideal treatment for people with sensitive gums and gum disease and as a supplement to advance healing in dental procedures.
