Treatment for periodontal disease is just a phone call away with Sindledecker Dentistry
- Posted on: Apr 30 2019
There are a few conditions that can develop within the smile that can cause serious damage, including periodontal disease and tooth decay. Both of these can develop without much notice to patients. This is why routine evaluations are needed to maintain oral health and wellness. When patients get a diagnosis of periodontal disease, they need to work with their dental providers to effectively treat it. The team at Sindledecker Dentistry is here to assist with Drs. Maxine and Amanda Sindledecker.
Understanding periodontal disease
Periodontal disease is a condition that can develop within the smile due to poor oral health habits. Once it develops, it cannot be cured, which is why the smile needs to be monitored for signs of this infection. It often begins in the gum tissue, hence the alternative name, “gum disease.” If left untreated, it can spread and become a much bigger issue, damaging soft tissues, bone, and teeth. Getting treatment as soon as it has started will improve patient chances for success in eliminating it.
How is periodontal disease treated?
The treatment option chosen for a patient will be determined based on the specific stage at which the condition has reached. If the condition is in the earlier stages, it can be addressed with a thorough cleaning from one of our dental hygienists. However, if the condition has reached the later stages of periodontitis, more invasive treatments may be needed including antibiotic treatment and procedures such as scaling and root planing. Drs. Maxine and Amanda Sindledecker will evaluate patients to determine what level the condition has reached and help patients choose a treatment option that works best with their specific needs. Early and effective treatment will avoid permanent damage to the smile.
