When patients are diagnosed with a gum infection, need immediate treatment to bring the smile back to health. Dr. A of Philadelphia, PA works provides appropriate diagnosis, treatment, and even preventative care to avoid future issues.
The infection of the gums is commonly known as gum disease or periodontal disease. This condition can cause permanent damage to the teeth, gums, and bone. Dr. A and his team of professional believe in providing quality, comprehensive dental care to ensure patients are keeping their smile healthy. When poor oral hygiene causes the development of a gum infection, prompt treatment needs to be provided.
The treatment for gum infections depends on the stage at which it has reached. The three most common treatments include:
These options are available for our patients at the practice of Innovative Dental. Dr. A will determine which is best, based on the diagnosis. The earlier stage, known as gingivitis, often responds well to a deep cleaning, while the more progressive stages may benefit from scaling and root planing and prescription antibiotics. Once the smile is brought back to health, the condition must be monitored closely. Periodontal disease cannot be cured, but it can be maintained with the help of a dental professional. Patients with gum infections may need to see their dentist every three months instead of every six.
