Non Surgical Periodontal Treatment

Periodontal diseases are chronic diseases. Without vigilant, meticulous and ongoing treatment, periodontal diseases can and often do recur. Once your periodontal health has been evaluated, your dentist will work with you to customize the best treatment plan to control your periodontal disease.

Treatment can vary depending on how far the periodontal disease has progressed. If diagnosed and treated in its early stages, simple non-surgical periodontal therapy may be enough. If periodontitis has progressed to the extent where you have deep periodontal pockets and considerable bone loss, you will be referred to a periodontis for surgical therapy.

Even when your periodontitis is under control you will still need to follow ongoing periodontal procedures to maintain your oral health. This ongoing treatment lets your dentist evaluate your periodontal health and ensures that your infection stays under control. During these re-evaluation appointments, your mouth will be examined, new plaque and calculus will be removed, your teeth will be professionally polished and your bite will be checked
