About Periodontal Treatments

Periodontal disease is 

 

We cannot stress enough, the importance of visiting your Start Smiling dental physicians, Dr. Sayeg or Dr. Cherof, at regularly scheduled intervals for exams and cleanings. At each of these appointments our Start Smiling dental professionals will check for issues such as gum disease which can lead to serious repercussions if left untreated. Peridontal gum disease is broken into three stages, gingivitis, periodontitis, and advanced periodontitis. There are surgical and nonsurgical treatment options for addressing peridontal gum disease depending on it's severity at the time that it is discovered. Symptoms of the disease can include swollen gums, bleeding while brushing, and persistent bad breath. 

What to Expect

Periodontal disease can range from mild to severe and the dentist will chose an appropriate treatment based on you condition. One of the most common and easiest gum treatment used is scaling and root planning (SRP), a nonsurgical deep cleaning of the gum pockets. Your Start Smiling dental physicians may include antibiotic treatment to reduce inflammation with scaling and root planing if your case is more advanced. For the third stage of periodontal disease, our dental team will usually chose a surgical procedures: laser gum surgery, regenerative procedures, and pocket reduction procedures. 

Treatment Aftercare

After the gums are restored to health after your periodontal treatment, it is important to maintain a good oral care routine to prevent recurrences of periodontal disease. You should talk to your Start Smiling dental physicians about a home routine, including proper brushing, flossing, and anything else the dentist recommends. You should also come into the office at least twice a year for a professional cleaning and at least once a year for a dental exam.

Insurance Coverage

Most dental insurance companies will cover periodontal treatments for gum disease, but the amount of coverage will vary based on your policy. During your consultation, we can discuss out-of-pocket costs, payment methods, and available financing plans.
