Periodontal Treatments and Procedures
Periodontists specialize in treating periodontal related diseases. Up to an additional three years of specialized training in periodontology is achieved by periodontists. They are also highly skilled in the performance of cosmetic periodontal surgery procedures. Periodontists are experts in the placement and restoration of dental implants, which are used to help permanently restore missing teeth.
Depending on the severity of the periodontal disease, the following treatments may be used to help restore the health of teeth and gums:
- Non-surgical treatments such as scaling and root planing are used to remove harmful buildup
- Laser assisted periodontal treatments are used to help improve periodontal health
- Pocket reduction procedures are used to eliminate pockets of infection
