Periodontal Tissue & Root Therapy

Gum health has been directly correlated to your overall health. For this reason, it is of vital importance to keep the gums as healthy as possible. If you have been diagnosed with periodontal disease, it is imperative that you seek the assistance of a specialist immediately.

Failure to do so could lead to numerous oral health complications and potentially devastating general health issues, such as the development of diabetes, experiencing heart disease, and even having a stroke.

It is not at all unusual for periodontal disease to detrimentally impact the appearance of the smile and the overall level of functionality of the mouth.

The good news is, you do not have to wait for a diagnosis of gum disease to optimize the health of your mouth.

There are wide assortments of procedures that are non-surgical that can prevent and treat periodontal disease. This is referred to as “tissue and root therapy”.

It is a comprehensive oral health maintenance plan that offers many benefits. If you have already been diagnosed with gum disease, it is imperative that you receive tissue and root therapy as quickly as possible to reduce the opportunity for any other complications to develop.

Tissue and root therapy starts with the complete and comprehensive cleaning of all components of the mouth. Plaque and tartar are removed from the teeth, as well as from just below the line of the gum.

In many instances, the root surface is smoothed so that gum tissue is capable of reattaching itself to the tooth so that complications – such as pockets – are prevented from developing.

In addition to that previously mentioned, you may be given antibiotics or provided with a comprehensive irrigation procedure with anti-microbials.

These aid in controlling the overall growth and speed of growth of bacteria and also helps to prevent toxins from stagnating and colonizing in the mouth; therefore, reducing the possibility of periodontitis from developing.
