Periodontal Disease and Treatment
You’ll understand how sophisticated Makefield Dental’s periodontal protocols are from your first examination on, something you’d expect in an office run by an Associate Professor that teaches and publishes articles on periodontal disease. Our biggest secret to keeping our patient’s gums healthy is our emphasis on prevention and education. Most offices tell their patients to brush and floss, but never show them how to do it. We understand that it takes no longer to brush correctly than it does to brush ineffectively. We match the tools and techniques to our patient’s abilities and preferences because the best tool to use is the one you’ll actually use!
Preventative Care is Key
We’re commonly told we need to get our teeth checked every six months. Less discussed is the very important field of periodontal treatment. It’s a subject which isn’t talked about enough. Here will provide more information as to why this field of dentistry is so important, and why you shouldn’t ignore it.
What is Periodontal Disease?
Periodontal treatment is essential in keeping your gums and teeth healthy. The treatment includes checking your gums and other parts of the mouth which support your teeth. This is done during an evaluation you’re your local dentist or periodontist. It’s recommended that you visit a qualified practitioner, like our very own Dr. Sibner, at least every six months. There are many reasons you should make a visit and the most important reason is periodontal disease.
One of the most common forms of oral disease is periodontal disease. This is usually an infection around the teeth which needs to be dealt with as soon as possible. A range of nasty bacteria can come together to damage otherwise healthy teeth. The other risks this poses to you include the following:
- Damage to the supporting bone around the teeth
- Gum disease
To protect yourself it is best to see a fully qualified, and impartial, dentist like Dr. Sibner that can help determine and diagnose periodontal disease. Due to the complex nature of periodontal treatment, Dr. Sibner only works with top periodontists that provide the same personal care he provides his patients.
Finding the Right Care
You can now see why it is so essential to have periodontal treatment. Your next step is to ask for an evaluation. During this process, the following body items will all be looked at:
- Your head and neck
- Your mouth, throat and teeth
- The joints in your jaw
A good evaluation will put your mind at rest, and ensure that you keep that welcoming smile in good condition.
