Treatment for Periodontal Disease
What Are Your Options?
Periodontal disease (gum disease) plagues nearly 80% of all people, many of them unaware that this serious condition can lead to more critical medical problems besides bad breath, painful, bleeding gums and lost teeth. It must be treated promptly and preferably in the least invasive manner possible.
Dr. Roya Mirkhan can provide you with a consultation in San Diego, not only offering a diagnosis but also a plan for treatment. Delay in taking care of such matters can lead to tooth loss, an increased risk of heart disease, and the need for dentures or dental implants.
- The great majority of people who suffer from periodontal disease can be treated through a process called scaling and root planing. This involves a careful cleaning and removal of plaque and tartar buildup as well as bacterial toxins from the root surfaces of your teeth and from the pockets below them.
- After this process is complete, some patients can further their treatment by receiving localized delivery of antimicrobials - substances that kill or prevent the further growth of bacteria. Such therapy must be received on an ongoing basis to maintain healthy teeth and gums.
- If your dentist believes your condition to be untreatable by non-surgical methods, it may be recommended that surgical efforts such as pocket reduction, regenerative procedures, crown lengthening or soft tissue grafts be completed. In some cases, non-surgical laser gum treatment for periodontal disease may be a powerful option.
