Periodontal Treatment Q & A

What is Periodontal Treatment?

Scaling and Root Planing a Starting Point

Scaling and root planing are the best starting point for anyone requiring periodontal treatment. It’s a deep-cleaning technique to remove the plaque and tartar that has accumulated beneath the gum tissue with the use of scalers and ultrasonic instruments.

Gum Grafting is a Good Option

In the event, it’s necessary to replace areas of gum tissue that have been damaged, gum grafting in Burlington is a great option to keep the tooth’s roots covered and protected. The procedure is performed by taking healthy gum tissue from one area of the mouth and then placing it in the area where it is needed. In some instances, donor tissue can be used in this procedure.

Other types of Periodontal Treatment?

Periodontal Laser Therapy in Burlington

The caring and professional board-certified staff at the Burlington Center Dental Associates will use lasers to remove gum tissue from a patient’s mouth. This treatment method is often preferred over other methods, such as conventional surgery since laser treatment is less painful and more successful in many instances.

A Dental Implant Can Help if Restoration is Needed

In some cases, a patient may need to have a tooth removed due to damage or decay. In cases such as this, a dental implant will be used to replace the tooth that’s been removed. The advantage of a dental implant is that it is very natural looking in its appearance and can last a lifetime with proper care.
