Periodontitis; Types of Treatment

Posted on 4/12/2021 by Arletta, Office Manager
Periodontitis; Types of TreatmentPeriodontitis or gum disease is determined after carrying out a thorough evaluation of a patient. This may include a detailed review of the patient's medical history, a thorough examination of their mouth, and taking measurements of the depth of pockets (gaps between the gums and teeth). In some cases, the dentist may also opt for dental x-rays as well to get a better idea of the severity of the periodontal disease.

Periodontitis Treatment Options

After a diagnosis, the periodontitis will perform the best treatment available that will suit your needs. The goal of the treatment option that is used will be to clean the pockets that are formed between the gums and teeth that are harboring the bacteria. You have the best chance to get treated successfully if you adopt a good daily oral health regimen and manage your oral health.

Non-Surgical Periodontitis Treatment

Periodontal disease treatment is mostly non-invasive, which reduces the risk of any complications while helping you improve your oral hygiene. There are several periodontic disease treatments that can be used to prevent the bacteria from spreading further to the rest of the teeth and gums.

Scaling, Antibiotics and Root Planing

One of the most used treatment options for periodontal disease is scaling, which involves the removal of all bacteria or tartar (in advanced stages) from the surface of the tooth and gums. Another common treatment option is called root planning, which is used to smoothen the surface of the root to discourage any future buildup of bacteria. Oral or topical antibiotics may also be used to prevent the spread of bacteria while eliminating all bacteria that's already built up between the teeth and gums.
