What is periodontal disease?
Also referred to as gum disease, periodontal disease is an inflammatory infection that can occur in the mouth. It is often caused by poor oral hygiene habits. The disease can result in permanent damage to the smile, including the soft tissues, the bone, and the natural teeth. Periodontal disease is a condition that, if caught early enough, can be addressed and reversed. However, if patients have the condition and do not work with a professional in addressing the problem soon enough, it can become a permanent problem that can only be maintained, not cured. This is why our team of professionals at Sindledecker Dentistry reiterate the importance of taking care of the smile and visiting the dentist regularly.
Periodontal disease requires treatment to address. Treatment varies depending on the stage at which the condition has reached. The earlier stages will benefit from a simple cleaning at the dental office and the use of antibiotics to rid the smile of the infection. Later stages, such as periodontitis, may require more invasive procedures such as scaling and root planing, as well as topical and oral antibiotics to address the infection from the inside out. Once the condition is maintained, patients may undergo certain treatments to restore the smile to its original beauty, such as gum grafting and tooth replacements.
