Periodontal Disease Treatment
The knowledgeable and experienced dentists at Noles Family Dental provide quality periodontic care to the Greensburg, Indiana community. Our dentists, Drs. Noles, Estes, and Sullivan don’t just treat gum disease. We work together with our patients to help them learn how to prevent and maintain it.
Noles Family Dental Treats All Stages of Periodontal Disease
Periodontal disease is progressive. The longer it is left untreated, the worse it gets. At Noles Family Dental, our dentists, Drs. Noles, Estes, and Sullivan have experience treating all stages of periodontal disease.
When creating a treatment plan for gum disease, we focus first on treating the disease. The procedures our dentists recommend will vary depending upon the severity of your gum disease.
Gingivitis, the beginning of periodontal disease, and early periodontitis may be treated with scaling and root planing or antibiotics. Oral surgery and tooth restoration may be needed to treat the more serious stages of gum disease, moderate periodontitis and advanced periodontitis.
Working With You to Keep Your Gums Healthy
After successfully treating your periodontal disease, our dentists, Drs. Noles, Estes, and Sullivan shift our focus to helping you maintain healthy teeth and gums.
For our patients who have a history of gum disease and who recently underwent treatment for it, we recommend scheduling appointments for periodontal maintenance every three to four months. During these appointments, your teeth will be professionally cleaned. Our dentist will also measure the depth of the pockets around your teeth and assess the health of your teeth and gums.
Regular periodontal maintenance appointments are time-consuming yet extremely important because they allow our dentists to monitor your progress. Our dentists want to make sure that we have stopped the progression of your gum disease. We also want to make sure that your gums and teeth remain healthy.
Scheduling regular appointments also allows our dentists to quickly address any issues or problems that arise. Many dental problems, especially those associated with periodontal disease such as gingivitis or cavities, are easier to treat in their early stages. Our dentists conduct examinations during these appointments that can lead to the early detection of a number of dental problems.
Educating Patients on Preventing Periodontal Disease Progression
What our patients do daily plays a huge role in preventing periodontal disease from progressing. Our dental team takes the time to educate our patients on the importance of creating and following a good daily oral hygiene routine.
We not only help our patients create a good oral hygiene routine, but we make sure you know what to do to properly follow it. Our dental team can guide you on proper brushing and flossing techniques. We can also provide education and guidance on simple lifestyle changes you could make that will help to improve your oral health
