How a Periodontist Can Help Minimize Tooth Loss

Signs of gum disease do not have to mean “game over” for your smile. Periodontists are experts who can deliver the latest techniques for treating periodontal disease. Procedures like scaling and root planing in addition to dental implants help patients with gum disease to improve gum health and minimize tooth loss successfully.

Contributing Factors

Gum disease is not always a result of poor oral care. Illness, hormone changes and genetics also play a role in who is at risk for periodontal problems. Medications, smoking and even conditions like diabetes put people at a greater risk for being diagnosed with gum disease.

Treatment

Treatment means disease management. Depending upon severity, outcomes are usually contingent upon how a patient maintains oral health at home. In addition to deep cleaning the gums, it will be paramount to keep up good daily care in addition to ceasing habits like smoking.
