What is periodontics treatment?
Most commonly people make the mistake of only focusing on cleaning their teeth, neglecting the health of their gums. You must understand that gums wrap around the tooth making a nice barrier between the mouth and the jaw bone which holds the tooth firmly in its position. If you’ve been diagnosed with periodontal gum disease, then your gums aren’t protecting the bone beneath. There’s a good chance you bleed when brushing your teeth or flossing- that is a common sign to pay attention to. The good news is gum disease can be controlled! You don’t have to lose your teeth, and the bleeding will stop. Our dentists and hygienists at Mountain Springs Dental office are familiar with the latest techniques for diagnosing and treating periodontal disease, as well as cosmetic periodontal procedures.
Periodontics procedure for bleeding gums
The first step usually involves a special cleaning called “scaling and root planing” to remove plaque and tartar deposits on the tooth and root surfaces. Our dentists may also recommend medication to help control the pain or aid in the healing process. We check the pocket depth to determine the effect of scaling and root planing. At this point most of our patients do not require any further active treatment, only preventive care; to learn more about the procedure of periodontics contact our dentists at Mountain Springs Dental office free of charge. .
