Periodontal Maintenance

Periodontal Maintenance

Periodontal diseases occur in the tissues of your teeth’s roots. Poor oral hygiene habits can lead to plaque formation, which over time can harden to form tartar. It can accumulate in your gum lines, and the bacteria penetrates your teeth roots leading to periodontal diseases. At an advanced stage, this disease can cause sore and bleeding gums, pain while chewing, and even teeth loss. Hence it is essential to brush your teeth properly twice a day and floss between them. Visit your dentist at least once every six months to ensure your oral health. In this way, you will be able to keep your teeth free from all types of periodontal problems. If you are still having issues with your gums or teeth, contact us at Doral Dental Specialty Center in Doral, FL.

Why is periodontal maintenance important?

When you visit Doral Dental Specialty Center, our expert dentist will first check your teeth’s conditions. Based on the test results, they might suggest surgical or non-surgical procedures for your teeth. The main aim of Periodontal Maintenance is to clean the pockets around your teeth and also the gap between your teeth to prevent gum disease and bone damage. After your treatment, you must maintain proper oral hygiene. Also, you will need to modify your lifestyle so that your habits will not interfere with your oral health, like stopping tobacco usage.

If you have periodontal issues early, then treatments like scaling, root planing, and antibiotics might work. However, for advanced stages, your dentist might refer you to oral surgeons to undergo processes like flap surgery, soft tissue grafts, bone grafting, etc. So if you notice any of the above symptoms, do not delay to contact us. Treating the disease early involves fewer hassles, and your gums will heal within less time.
