What is periodontal disease?

Periodontal disease references any infections that affect the structures that hold your teeth in place, including your gums, your periodontal ligament, and your alveolar bone.

When people talk about periodontal disease, they usually mean gum disease. The team at Sharp Dentistry & Associates offers periodontal treatments for gum disease types like:

Gum diseases such as these form from plaque, a sticky bacteria that builds up on your teeth and hardens if you don’t remove it through regular brushing. Left unchecked, gum disease eventually destroys your gums and teeth.

How does periodontal treatment work?

Generally, periodontal treatment works in 2-3 different phases, which Dr. Sharp’s team adjusts according to your periodontal health. If you’re anxious about any in-office treatments, don’t hesitate to ask the practice for sedation to relax and calm you.

Phase one

During the first phase of treatment, Sharp Dentistry & Associates focuses on getting your infection under control. To do this, your team identifies the source of your periodontal disease and helps you address it.

Controlling your infection requires a concerted effort on your part, as well as your dental team. Typically, your part of the equation involves making certain changes, such as improving your oral hygiene or smoking cessation.

Meanwhile, Dr. Sharp’s team does their part via non-surgical periodontal treatments like scaling and root planing. During scaling and root planing, he carefully removes plaque and tartar from deep periodontal pockets and smooths your tooth roots to eliminate bacterial toxins.

If needed, Dr. Sharp & his team of periodontists follows scaling and root planing with add-on therapy, such as a round of antibiotics to help kill the infection.

Phase two

If non-surgical treatments don’t seem to work, or if your infection is too deep to clean well, Dr. Sharp may suggest you move to the second phase of treatment, you might need a surgical approach such as A) Osseo Surgery B) Extraction of the hopeless teeth or tooth and placement of an implant  C) Bone Graft and after 3 to 4 months placement of an implant.

Phase three

Finally, phase three is maintenance. Maintenance ensures that your periodontal disease doesn’t come back by observing good oral hygiene habits. When you finish your periodontal treatments, Dr. Sharp and his team discusses your oral hygiene in detail with you to make sure that you know what you need to do to keep your teeth healthy. He also schedules you for a three-month check-up.

Periodontal health matters. Left to its own devices, untreated periodontal disease correlates to an increased risk of developing diabetes,heart disease, stroke, and respiratory illnesses. Even when it’s less severe, it’s unpleasant.
