Periodontal Treatment

FAMILY DENTISTRY

Periodontists are responsible for the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of diseases affecting the gums and jawbone. This is inclusive of gum tissue, which anchor teeth to the jawbone, ensuring a tough and durable mouth. Periodontists specialize in the treatment and surgery of this area, which is often characterized by gum disease.

Gingivitis eventually evolves to periodontal disease. This means bacteria living in the plaque on your teeth infects the surrounding gum tissue. As the infection takes over the tissue, the jawbone will recede, ultimately causing loose teeth.

Proper oral hygiene, daily dental care and regular dental checkups with Dr. Appel will minimize the risk of future issues. Unfortunately, periodontal-related problems are often discovered after they have persisted for an extended period of time. This makes it harder for patients to treat, although treatments are readily available. Periodontists are trained in implants, which will allow function to be restored to the mouth, as a last step. Early recognition cannot be overstated, as It is key to eradicating the bacteria and containing the damage.

Problems you have commonly seen are actually in need of periodontic treatment. These include “long” teeth (receding gum lines expose the root portions of teeth), discolored or deteriorating tooth structure, a discoloration or inflammation of the gum tissue and tooth movement.
