Preventing Serious Issues With Periodontal Disease

It is important to deal with the effects that gum disease can cause you to experience, but you should know that professional periodontal care can benefit you even before the problem has become severe. While our Encinitas/San Diego, CA periodontal practice is prepared to help those patients who are struggling with the effects of periodontal disease, we also offer support for those who are working to prevent trouble with their periodontal health. By taking action to stop the progression of an infection when you have gingivitis, or scheduling supportive periodontal maintenance appointments, you can avoid issues with tissue damage, and tooth loss. The right intervention at the right time can have a significant impact on your long-term health, and make it easier to preserve your smile.

Responding To Gingivitis Before Your Condition Progresses Further

If you seem to be experiencing the effects of gingivitis, taking action against the matter before it progresses can help you avoid more involved work to save your smile in the future. Through a professional periodontal cleaning, also known as a scaling and root planing, your periodontist will clear away the destructive bacteria below your gum line that are responsible for causing your infection. On top of removing bacteria that are currently present, the surfaces of your teeth will be treated in order to make bacteria buildup more difficult in the future. For patients who need help managing periodontal disease, supportive periodontal maintenance can keep your infection in check, so you are not stuck battling the more significant consequences of this condition.

Fighting Harmful Bacteria By Providing Ozone Therapy

Ozone therapy is used to fight the “bad” bacteria in your gums, meaning those microbes that are responsible for causing infections. Why is it important to target those microbes, while preserving healthy ones? Doing so will help sustain a healthy environment in your mouth, helping you recover from your problems more easily.
