Now Offering PerioProtect!
At-Home Periodontal Treatment
Periodontal treatment is critical to prevent further infection and oral health concerns. With PerioProtect, patients can treat gum disease from the comfort of their own homes. A powerful medication is put in the trays, which are worn for about 15 minutes at a time. This powerful treatment not only treats the cause of gum disease below the gum line but also oxygenates the good cells, replenishing them to create a healthy environment beneath the gums. This treatment is safe, effective, and pain-free.
Signs of Gum Disease
There are many symptoms of gum disease, including:
A healthy gum line will be pink, not bright red. Inflammation can also cause bleeding.
Pain or Sensitivity
Tooth or gum pain and sensitivity can be caused by bacteria buildup below the gums.
Chronic Bad Breath
Bacteria can cause chronic bad breath, which may be a sign of gum disease.
Gum disease can cause periodontal pockets. This can lead to loose teeth and eventual tooth loss.
A receding gum line can expose the tooth roots, which can lead to oral health complications.
Can Periodontal Issues Be Prevented?
In some cases, yes. Preventing gum disease is always the best option. This can be done by maintaining good oral hygiene. Brush with a soft-bristled brush twice a day, and don't forget to floss. Regular dental exams and cleanings can also prevent plaque buildup. You can also lessen your risk for gum disease by not using tobacco products.
Do I Need a Periodontist?
No, you do not need to see a periodontist. A periodontist is a dentist who specializes in the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of periodontal disease. Our dentists are skilled in a variety of dental treatment options so you can get the care you need at our office in Archdale, NC. Our treatment options include cosmetic, general, and restorative dentistry options, including dental implants. This means you can see our dentists for routine care as well as periodontal services.
