What is periodontal disease?

The disease affecting the tooth-supporting structures like gums, bones, cementum, and the periodontal ligament is called periodontal disease. It is an advanced form of gum disease. If the periodontal disease is left untreated, it can cause tooth loss. Also, the bacteria causing periodontal disease has been shown to increase the risk of developing heart disease, diabetes and has been linked to a higher risk of premature birth in pregnant women. It is important to protect your gums and tooth-supporting structures. Signs and symptoms of periodontal infection include bleeding gums, swollen and red gums, gum recession, loss of attachment, tooth mobility, and mild ache in the gums. Most of the periodontal destruction originates from deposits of plaque and tartar. This favors the growth of bacteria that destroys the gums.

Gum care

At the early stages, gum disease may present as ‘gingivitis’ where the gums are inflamed and may bleed. However, periodontal disease is both preventable and treatable. At every check-up appointment, you are screened for periodontal disease. We’ve observed exceptional results with our non-surgical treatments, including the latest ultrasonic methods and a wide variety of irrigants.

Periodontal disease can be non-surgically treated with scaling and root planing, also known as deep cleaning. The unhealthy granulation tissue, plaque, and tartar are removed using high-grade ultrasonic instruments along with the suitable irrigants. With regular follow-ups for proper periodontal maintenance, non-surgically managed periodontal disease has shown excellent results. Our team is highly experienced in treating gum disease. We make sure to treat the condition in a minimally invasive manner unless it demands a more invasive treatment solution.
