At Real Life Dental, we offer comprehensive periodontal disease treatment services to help restore your oral health and protect your smile.

Periodontal disease, also known as gum disease, is caused by the buildup of plaque and tartar on the teeth, leading to the infection and inflammation of the gums. It’s a serious condition that affects the gums and supporting structures of the teeth, and if left untreated, it can progress and result in tooth loss and damage to the surrounding bone and tissues. Symptoms of periodontal disease include swollen gums, bad breath, or bleeding while brushing or flossing.

Real Life Dental offers a range of effective treatment options tailored to meet your specific needs, including:

  1. Scaling and root planing: This non-surgical procedure involves removing plaque and tartar from the surfaces of the teeth and the roots. The root surfaces are then smoothed to prevent further buildup.
  2. Antibiotics: We may prescribe antibiotics to eliminate bacteria and manage infection, particularly in more advanced cases of periodontal disease.
  3. Laser therapy: Our office is equipped with advanced dental lasers that efficiently remove infected tissue and promotes faster healing.
  4. Periodontal maintenance: After undergoing periodontal disease treatment, regular maintenance visits are essential to prevent reoccurrence of the disease. We will develop a customized maintenance plan for you, including professional cleanings and monitoring of your gum health.

It’s important to understand that early detection and treatment are key to successfully managing periodontal disease. If you suspect that you may have gum disease, we encourage you to schedule an appointment with our dental office. Our experienced team will conduct a thorough examination, evaluate your gum health, and recommend the most appropriate treatment options for your situation.
