Why Would You Need Periodontal Disease Therapy?

It is not enough to just care for your teeth. You must also take care of your gums and the underlying tooth-supporting bone structure.

Periodontal disease is a bacterial infection that threatens these tissues. Our dentists at Abington Dental Arts are always checking for early signs of periodontal disease with each visit, as you may not notice a problem until much later.

When signs of trouble become apparent, periodontal disease therapy may be suggested. It can take many forms, but the goal of each avenue is the same: To restore diseased tissues.

Periodontal disease can spread throughout your gums and bone structure, causing tooth loss in the most severe cases.

We at Abington Dental Arts offer outstanding periodontist services, together with our general family dentistry.

Trust in Abington Dental Arts’ Periodontist Services

You can fight periodontal disease with preemptive measures: Regular professional cleanings, oral examinations, and general family dentistry services by Abington Dental Arts. But if periodontal disease does strike, necessitating periodontal disease therapy, Abington Dental Arts is there for you, as well! Our dental staff offers the services of a periodontist in the same location as your general family dentistry practitioner!

Periodontal disease therapy includes both surgical and non-surgical treatments to restore health to your gums and the supporting structures of your teeth. Some of these include:

Scaling and Root Planing: These deep-cleaning treatments will remove plaque and tartar from beneath the gum tissue, using hand scalers and ultrasonic instruments.

Gum Grafting: We can replace areas of lost gum tissue to protect exposed tooth roots. We use healthy gum tissue from another area of your mouth or donor tissue.

Periodontal Plastic Surgery: We use surgical procedures to reshape the gum tissue appearance.

Periodontal Laser Treatment: Removing diseased gum tissue with lasers offers advantages over traditional surgery, including less discomfort and gum shrinkage.

Crown Lengthening Surgery: This surgical procedure exposes the tooth structure covered by gum tissue for either cosmetic reasons, such as make teeth look longer and a smile less gummy, or to aid in securing a dental crown.

Dental Implants: We place titanium dental implants beneath the gum line and into the jawbone during a minor surgical procedure. We then attach a realistic-looking dental crown that is visible and indistinguishable from a natural tooth.

Without a doubt, Abington Dental Arts offers you and your family peerless, professional periodontal services!

Fight the Periodontal Fight on the Homefront, Too!

We at Abington Dental Arts are committed to the fact that to maintain proper dental health, our patients must not just rely on our dental staff and regular appointments. You must also fight the battle at home, alongside our periodontist services!

Dental plaque is the main cause of periodontal disease, so it is vital for you to remove it every day with effective brushing and flossing.

There are, however, some areas in your mouth that you just cannot reach with a toothbrush and floss, so it is important to regularly see our friendly, professional dental staff at Abington Dental Arts! Your appointments will reveal early signs of periodontal disease, long before they are apparent to you.
