Periodontal treatment focuses specifically on structures that support the teeth, including the jaw bone and gums. It typically involves a deep cleaning of the teeth, down to the root, in order to remove plaque and tartar deposits.
In some cases, surgery may be required to remove hard-to-reach areas of infection. Grafts or modifications to the shape of your gums can also form part of your periodontal treatment, having an aesthetic effect as well as a functional impact on your oral health.
If infection sets in around the base of your teeth or your mouth shows signs of gum disease, (gingivitis), perio treatment is required to resolve the problem, limiting damage to the underlying bone. Gum health issues can have a number of different causes, including hormonal changes, illnesses or medication. It isn’t necessarily an indication of poor oral hygiene.
Although dental implants are typically problem-free, disease and infection can build up around the implant. Periodontal treatment is the appropriate method for addressing any bacterial build up deep below the teeth, scaling to the severity of the issue.
Periodontal treatment covers a range of procedures, the cost of which varies depending on which treatments apply to your mouth.
