The Gums Need Proper Dental Hygiene

Periodontics Columbia, SC

The structures supporting teeth need proper care, or they will become infected and damage the teeth.

Periodontics

With such a focus on cleaning the visible surface of the teeth, it can be easy for people to forget about the structure of their teeth. You may not even realize that the structure of the teeth is just as susceptible to tooth decay as the other areas of the teeth. This is where we can help.

A periodontist receives three more years of training on top of dental school in order to provide advanced treatment for specific types of infections. We can help to eliminate the signs and symptoms of periodontal disease to prevent it from spreading further.

We will consider treatment options such as scaling and root planing, which is the cleaning of infected root surfaces. We may also consider root surface debridement, which will remove damaged tissue. The type of treatment will be customized to the needs of each patient.

Periodontics involves focusing on the structures of the teeth that support the crown of the tooth. These structures are known as roots. If these structures do not receive the proper care, then the teeth will be more susceptible to infection.

Following the initial treatment, we will schedule follow-up appointments to continue keeping an eye on the patient's oral health. If we notice any signs of returning infection, we will conduct the necessary treatment to remove the source.

If you are suffering from periodontal disease, infection, or toothaches, give us a call today. We can help to determine the cause, customize a treatment plan, and help patients receive the dental care they need.
