Periodontal treatment encompasses the care and treatment of the infection in the gums, bones and supporting tissues surrounding the teeth. Three out of four adults have some form of the disease. Periodontal disease is usually caused by plaque – the sticky film of food, bacteria that are constantly accrued on the teeth over time
At our Riverwalk Smile Dentistry office in Rock Hill SC, we use Debridement technique which is thorough removal of heavy plaque and tartar using an Ultrasonic scaler. It is an effective procedure in treating periodontal disease. An Ultrasonic scaler produces soft ultrasonic vibrations. The small click vibrations along with the high frequency water waves thoroughly removes tartar by decreasing the number of destructive bacteria below the gum line. Antibiotics or irrigation with anti-microbials (chemical agents or rinses) may be recommended to help control the growth of bacteria that create toxins and causes periodontal disease. Follow up evaluations determine the effectiveness of the treatment by measuring the pocket depths around the teeth. In complicated cases, the patient may be referred to a periodontist. We offer BreathRX products which can help maintain fresh breath in between teeth cleanings.
