Non-Surgical Periodontal Therapy

 

Periodontal disease (gum disease) is the result of a bacterial infection that causes destruction of the bone surrounding your teeth. If we feel that you are suffering from gum disease, we may recommend a more complex treatment. Such measures can be instrumental in the prevention of further bone loss and may help you retain your natural teeth.

Non-surgical periodontal therapy is a procedure during which the hygienist removes plaque and tartar from below the gum line. Root surfaces are cleaned and smoothed with specially designed instruments. Periodontal therapy entails these basic objectives:

  • restore periodontal health
  • slow or stop the progression of periodontal disease
  • in extreme cases, prepare the tissue for more complex periodontal therapy
