What is Periodontal Therapy?

Periodontal therapy is a type of dental treatment that aims to alleviate periodontal disease, an oral health condition affecting the gums and supporting tissues of the teeth. The therapy involves a combination of non-surgical and surgical treatments, including scaling and root planing, gum surgery, and antibiotic therapy.

Why would someone need Periodontal Therapy?

Periodontal therapy may be needed to manage symptoms and prevent further damage in individuals diagnosed with periodontal disease. It may also benefit those with gum tissue issues, such as gum recession, and help restore oral health.

Who is eligible for Periodontal Therapy?

Individuals experiencing symptoms of periodontal disease, including bleeding gums, bad breath, and gum recession, may be eligible for periodontal therapy. Those with a family history of gum disease, as well as risk factors such as smoking or diabetes, may also benefit from the treatment.

What happens during the Periodontal Therapy procedure?

The dentist will first assess the severity of the individual's condition to determine the best course of action. Depending on the patient's needs, non-surgical and surgical treatments, such as scaling and root planing, gum surgery, and antibiotic therapy, may be used. The dentist will work with the patient to develop a personalized treatment plan to address their specific needs and achieve optimal oral health.
