Your Personalized Path to Healthy Gums: Vancouver Periodontal Treatment Experts

Periodontal treatment methods depend upon the type and severity of the disease.  Your dentist and dental hygienist will evaluate for periodontal disease and recommend the appropriate treatment.

Periodontal disease progresses as the sulcus (pocket or space) between the tooth and gums gets filled with bacteria, plaque, and tartar, irritating the surrounding tissues. When these irritants remain in the pocket space, they can cause damage to the gums and eventually, the bone that supports the teeth!

Stopping Gum Disease Receding: Early Treatment & Prevention Tips

  1. If the infection is caught early and there’s no lasting damage, you’ll be recommended for 1 to 2 regular cleanings. You’ll also be given tips on how to practice good oral hygiene daily and have regular dental cleaning. In addition, your dentist may suggest periodontal treatment to get rid of all the bacteria beneath the gum line and help keep your gums healthy.
  2. If the disease has progressed to more advanced stages, a special periodontal cleaning called scaling and root planing (deep cleaning) will be recommended.  It is usually done in one quadrant of the mouth at a time while the area is numb.  In this procedure, tartar, plaque, and toxins are removed from above and below the gum line (scaling) and rough spots on root surfaces are made smooth (planing).  This procedure helps gum tissue to heal and pockets to shrink.  Medications, special medicated mouth rinses, and an electric toothbrush may be recommended to help control infection and healing.
  3. If the pockets do not heal after scaling and root planing, periodontal surgery may be needed to reduce pocket depths, making teeth easier to clean.  Your dentist may also recommend that you see a Periodontist (specialist of the gums and supporting bone).
