Keeping your gums healthy can help you maintain your overall health. Recent studies point to a link between gum disease and serious health conditions, such as stroke, diabetes, and heart disease. If you have gum disease, or you just want to keep your gums healthy, Gums n Braces offers a full range of periodontal treatment options to help return your gums to a healthy state and sustain health through our comprehensive maintenance plan. Periodontal disease can range from minor gum inflammation to serious disease with profound damage to soft tissue and bone that support your teeth leading to loosening of teeth.
We begin periodontal treatment with a thorough examination to determine the right course of treatment. The treatment options include:
Scaling and Root Planing – Scaling and root planning involve the removal of calculus (tartar) from the necks of the teeth and below the gum line to help treat gum disease.
Non-surgical Chemotherapeutic Treatment – This approach to gum disease treatment involves the placement of an antibacterial medication below the gumline. These medications kill the bacteria which is associated with gum disease.
Surgical Treatment – For advanced cases, surgical gum treatment becomes necessary, which includes bone grafting and guided tissue regeneration. These advanced techniques are used to help restore the bone that is lost due to periodontal disease.
Comprehensive Maintenance – Once your gums are in a healthy state, it's very important to be on comprehensive maintenance to prevent the disease from coming back. Long-term success is achieved through our professional maintenance and diligent home care.
