At Northpointe Dental, we understand the critical importance of gum health in maintaining overall oral wellness. That is why we offer comprehensive periodontal disease treatment to combat the various stages of gum disease, from gingivitis to advanced periodontitis. Our goal is to restore the health of your gums and prevent further damage, utilizing the latest in dental care practices and technology.

Combating Gum Disease With Advanced Treatment

Periodontal disease, a serious condition affecting the gums and bone supporting the teeth, can lead to tooth loss and has been linked to other health issues if left untreated. Our treatments range from non-surgical methods like scaling and root planing to advanced surgical procedures, depending on the severity of the disease. Each plan is tailored to halt the progression of gum disease, alleviate symptoms and rehabilitate your gums back to health.

The Periodontal Disease Treatment Process

The journey to healthier gums involves a personalized approach, focusing on eliminating the bacteria causing the disease and repairing the damage:

  1. Comprehensive Assessment: Our first step is a thorough examination to assess the extent of the periodontal disease, utilizing diagnostic tools to determine the best course of action.
  2. Treatment Planning: Based on the assessment, we develop a customized treatment plan that may include deep cleaning procedures, medication or surgical interventions to effectively address the condition.
  3. Execution of Treatment: Treatments are carried out with the utmost care, focusing on removing plaque and tartar buildup beneath the gum line and, if necessary, reshaping or regenerating bone and gum tissue lost to periodontitis.
  4. Ongoing Maintenance and Support: Following treatment, we provide guidance on maintaining your gum health and schedule regular follow-ups to monitor your progress and prevent recurrence.
