Patients in the Springfield, MA area who have been diagnosed with periodontal disease at any point in time may be worried about the treatments required to bring their smile back to health. The dentists at Taylor Street Dental encourage patients to take the time to learn about this condition and how it can be treated.
What is periodontal disease?
At Taylor Street Dental, our providers describe periodontal disease, or “gum disease,” as a soft tissue infection. It begins in the gums but then can spread if left untreated. The earlier the condition is diagnosed and treated, the easier it is to bring the smile back to its original health. Our dentists need to treat the infection by providing special treatments based on the stage at which the condition has reached.
Our pracitce offers a variety of periodontal therapy options including:
• Soft tissue laser treatment
• Scaling and root planing
Treatment performed with our lasers will help combat bacteria while treating the infection at the source. This treatment will reduce the amount of bleeding that can occur during treatment, while also allowing patients to experience shorter healing times. Of course, the sooner the condition is caught, the easier it is for our dental team to intervene successfully. Periodontal therapy should be done the moment it has been diagnosed during an evaluation.
Can periodontal disease be cured?
It is important that our patients understand that the development of periodontal disease is completely avoidable with proper care and attention to the smile. Once it has developed, it can only be controlled and maintained, so we encourage patients to take the time care for their smile with brushing, flossing, and routine dental examinations at Taylor Street Dental. This proactive approach to dental health will greatly reduce the risk of developing not only periodontal disease, but cavities that may negatively impact the smile.
