About Periodontal Treatments@headingTag>
Periodontal (gum) disease is an irritation of the gum tissue, which can cause serious problems, including infection or tooth loss if it is not detected and promptly treated. The three progressions of gum disease are gingivitis (first stage), periodontitis (second stage), and advanced periodontitis (final stage). During each patient's annual dental exams at DentalWorks - Macedonia in Macedonia, OH, our dentists will check for gum disease, but common indications include red, swollen gums; bleeding while brushing and flossing; receded or separated gums; and persistent bad breath. Depending on the level of gum disease when it is detected, our dentists at DentalWorks - Macedonia can perform surgical or nonsurgical treatment procedures: scaling and root planing, antibiotics, gum surgery, gum tissue grafting, and tooth extraction.

What to Expect@headingTag>
Periodontal disease can vary between mild to severe and our dentists will decide on a treatment to fit the patient's level. One of the most common and easiest gum treatments offered is scaling and root planing (SRP), which is a nonsurgical deep cleaning of the plaque and tartar in the gum pockets. Our dentists may add on a course of antibiotics with the scaling and root planing treatment to decrease inflammation if the condition is more advanced. For the third stage of periodontal disease, our dentists will need to chose a surgical service: laser gum surgery, regenerative procedures, and pocket reduction.
Due to the chronic nature of gum disease, patients typically require maintenance care which includes at home therapy and more frequent visits to the dentist. The most cutting edge at home therapy is a tray delivery system known as PerioProtect. This tray is custom fitted to you and made to deliver medication. This helps keep the infection at bay in the comfort of your own home. Click here for more information on PerioProtect.
As soon as the gums are restored from the patient's periodontal service, it is important that the patient maintain a good oral care routine at home to stop another case of periodontal disease. Patients should talk to our dentists about a home routine, including proper brushing, flossing, and other treatments our dentists recommend. Patients should also remember to schedule appointments at DentalWorks - Macedonia at least twice every year for a regular cleaning and at least once a year for an examination with our dentists.
Generally, dental insurance companies will cover periodontal services for gum disease, although the amount of coverage may differ based on the patient's policy. At some point in the patient's consultation, our dentists can go over out-of-pocket costs, payment methods, and offered financing plans.
