The Best Periodontal Treatments Franklin County VA - Eschenbach Family Dentistry

Welcome to your first step toward bettering your periodontal and overall health. Healthy gums, healthy body!

There are a variety of ways periodontists can treat gum disease. Following dental school, periodontists receive up to three additional years of specialized training in both surgical and non-surgical periodontal procedures to treat gum disease. Periodontists are also experts in replacing missing teeth with dental implants.

Pyorrhea Treatment

The good news is that at every stage, gum disease is treatable. Even in severe cases, it could be possible to save your teeth and get you feeling like smiling again. You can forget any feelings of fear or shame.

Periodontists are specialists in identifying, treating, and managing gum disease to get the healthiest outcome for you.

Pyorrhea Treatment Options

Pyorrhea, also known as periodontitis, is a multifactorial disease that directly affects the oral gums and the bone. If you’ve been diagnosed with Gum Disease, there are a variety of treatment options depending on the details of your situation and the severity of the problem. We always start with the least invasive options, which are non-surgical. Very often, early stages of periodontal disease are effectively treated with non-surgical periodontal therapy. However, in more serious cases, surgery may be necessary.

Non-Surgical Treatment

The first line of defense against gum disease is a unique type of cleaning called “scaling and root planing.” In this procedure, an ultrasonic cleaning device is used to remove plaque and tartar from your teeth where regular cleaning devices can’t reach: under the gum line, on the tooth, and around the root. Then, the rough surface of the tooth and the root are smoothed out (“planed”). This provides a healthy, clean surface that makes it easier for the gum tissue to reattach to the tooth. If you address your gum disease before it becomes severe, scaling and root planing may be the only treatment you need.

Surgical Treatment Options

If the tissue or bone surrounding your teeth is too damaged to be repaired with non-surgical treatment, several surgical procedures are available to prevent severe damage and restore healthy beautiful smiles. We will recommend the procedure that is best suited to the condition of your teeth and gums. Following is a list of common types of periodontal surgery:

  • Pocket Depth Reduction
  • Regeneration
  • Soft-Tissue Graft
