Periodontics Dental Treatments
General dentists can provide regular in-office tooth cleanings, and give instruction on effective at-home oral hygiene—two common measures that can help prevent gum disease. But sometimes, that just isn’t enough. Periodontists are often called upon to treat advanced or complicated cases of gum disease. Their special training and experience enables them to diagnose the underlying conditions causing the disease, and offer a number of effective treatments and restorative procedures. They also work in conjunction with general dentists, tailoring a comprehensive plan that can resolve a patient’s present gum disease—and keep it from recurring in the future.
