Periodontal Disease Treatment
Do you suffer from swollen or bleeding gums? You’re not alone, but it needs to be addressed.
If you answered yes to the question above, then you may be suffering from a serious infection, inflammatory, and/or contagious disease that requires prompt and effective treatment.
Periodontal disease is caused by bacteria that collects on the tooth surface near the gum line. It then destroys the gum tissue and bone; it is a leading cause of tooth loss among adults. However, the harm of periodontal disease doesn’t stop at the mouth. The bacteria can travel into the bloodstream and infect any major organ. Watch the video below on the latest research that links cardiovascular disease with periodontal disease.
At. Dr. Zak North Park Dental Care, we can help you combat this disease with a personalized treatment plan to eradicate the infection of your gums and teeth.
This plan might include any of the following procedures, depending on the disease’s severity:
1. Scaling and root planning, which eliminates tartar and plaque below the gum.
2. The detoxification of root surfaces where the disease festers using laser treatment and antibiotics.
3. Flushing out the pockets in order to allow the gums to healthily reattach to root surfaces.
4. Periodontal Maintenance.
5. Education on how to better care for your teeth through home brushing and flossing.
We are dedicated to working with you to bring you back to excellent oral health and simultaneously lower your risk of heart attack and stroke, as well as potentially decrease the severity of existing coronary artery disease.
