Non-Surgical Treatment

According to the AAP treatment guidelines, periodontal health should be achieved in the least invasive and most cost-effective manner. Often this is accomplished with scaling and root planing (a careful cleaning of the root surfaces to remove plaque and calculus [tartar]), and adjunctive therapy such as local delivery antimicrobials and host modulation. The treatment of cavities, inadequate fillings, broken fillings, crowding of teeth, rotated or tilting teeth are also a component of non-surgical therapy. These patients are then maintained with proper home care and periodic professional maintenance cleanings. Non-surgical therapy does have its limitations. When it does not achieve periodontal health, surgery may be indicated to restore periodontal anatomy and facilitate oral hygiene practices. The following are periodontal surgical options to obtain or improve periodontal health.

  • Pocket Reduction Procedures
  • Regenerative Procedures
  • Crown Lengthening
  • Soft Tissue Grafts
  • Dental Implants

After a thorough periodontal examination, you will be presented with a tailored periodontal treatment plan created to your specific needs and ability to complete your recommended treatment.
