Periodontal Disease (Gum Disease/Gingivitis) Treatment Gainesville, FL

Periodontal disease treatment options

Dentist in Gainesville, FL offering periodontal disease treatment. The main cause of tooth loss in adults is periodontal disease. At Smart Smile Dentistry, we want you to keep your natural teeth for life, and that is why we have an experienced dentist on staff to treat all stages of gum disease. The earliest phase of periodontal disease is gingivitis, which is marked by puffy, bleeding gum tissues. Caused by irritation from oral bacteria, gingivitis can be reversed with professional dental teeth cleaning (prophylaxis) and increased oral hygiene measures at home.

Once pockets have formed between the gum tissues and teeth, you have moved beyond gingivitis and into true periodontal disease. At this point, your Gainesville, FL dentist, Dr. Samant will do everything possible to arrest the condition and prevent further damage from occurring.

The most commonly used initial periodontal treatment is scaling and root planing, which is also called a deep cleaning.

Deep cleaning treatment involves removing debris and tartar deposits from below the gumline, followed by smoothing out the rough surfaces of the tooth roots. Your dentist may also administer Arestin, which is a localized antibiotic placed in the periodontal pockets, to stave off further bacterial growth so that the gums can heal.

If the inflammation and periodontal pockets worsen, your specialized dentist in Gainesville, Florida offers a wide range of surgical periodontal treatments to remove bacteria and regenerate lost tissue in the gums or supporting alveolar bone.
