Heritage House Dental and Periodontal Disease
Periodontal disease, gingivitis, gum disease. What is it and how do you treat it? If you have been told you have periodontal disease, gum disease or gingivitis, you are not alone. These oral conditions affect many adults in North America. Dr. Kate Bazydlo and associates of Heritage House Dental in Mississauga are trained in all aspects of periodontics and are ready to help.
Periodontal diseases range from simple inflammation of the gums to a more advanced serious disease that results in major damage to the soft tissue and bone that supports the teeth. In the worst cases, teeth are lost.
Once you are diagnosed by your dentist or dental hygienist, it is important to establish a dental cleaning routine. Regular cleaning, scaling and root planning are a must. This helps to reduce the amount of bacteria present in pockets surrounding the teeth which have developed due to gum tissue damage. Periowave therapy, a dental laser, may be utilized to promote healing in certain area where pocket depths are increased.
Maintaining a regular home care routine is the key to successful treatment of periodontal disease. Whether your gum disease is stopped, slowed or even gets worse depends a great deal on your dental care efforts at home. Together with your dentist and dental hygienist at Heritage House Dental in Mississauga we will develop a dental treatment plan most suitable to you and your dental needs.
