Both surgical and non-surgical techniques are used in periodontal therapy. All of these techniques help to prevent tooth loss and restore health to the gums and bones that support the teeth. The therapy includes the following procedures:
The primary cause of periodontal disease is dental plaque. A simple and effective way to prevent buildup is to brush and floss your teeth every day. Because some areas are out of reach for a toothbrush and floss, it is important to also schedule regular checkups with your dentist, where thorough cleaning can be performed. Early signs of gum disease can also be detected at these visits with a dental exam. In addition to this, maintaining a healthy, low-sugar diet, and refraining from tobacco use will increase your periodontal health.
