About Periodontal Treatments

Gum (periodontal) disease is an irritation of the gum tissue that can cause serious problems, including tooth loss of infection if it isn't detected and promptly treated. The three progressions of periodontal disease are gingivitis (stage one), periodontitis (stage two), and advanced periodontitis (stage three). During every patient's annual dental exams at Saddle Brook Dental Care in White Settlement, TX, our dentists will look for periodontal disease, but typical indications include swollen, red gums; bleeding while brushing or flossing the teeth; receding gums; and chronic halitosis. Based on the level of periodontal disease when it is detected, our dentists at Saddle Brook Dental Care can perform surgical or nonsurgical treatment procedures: antibiotics, scaling and root planing, tooth extraction, gum surgery, and gum tissue grafting.

What to Expect

Gum disease can vary between mild to severe and our dentists will decide on a gum disease treatment to fit the patient's level. One of the easiest and most common periodontal treatments offered is scaling and root planing (SRP), a noninvasive deep cleaning of the plaque build up under the gum pockets. Our dentists may add on a course of antibiotics with the SRP treatment to decrease inflammation if the condition is farther along. For the final level of gum disease, our dentists will need to perform an invasive service: pocket reduction, laser gum surgery, or regenerative gum surgery.

Treatment Aftercare

As soon as the gums are restored from the patient's gum disease service, it's critical that the patient start a good dental care regime at home to stop another case of gum disease. Patients should ask our dentists about an at home regime, including correct flossing, brushing, and other treatments our dentists suggest. Patients should also remember to schedule appointments at Saddle Brook Dental Care at least two times every year for a regular cleaning and at least one time a year for an examination with our dentists.

Insurance Coverage

Generally, dental insurance policies will pay for periodontal services for gum disease, although the amount of coverage may differ based on the individual policy. At some point in the initial consultation, our dentists can go over personal expenses, payment options, and offered financing plans.
