What Is Periodontal Therapy?
Frequently called gum disease, periodontal disease is a chronic condition that can cause bleeding and inflamed gums, bone loss, and loose teeth. Caused by a buildup of plaque along the gums, periodontal disease is primarily composed of three progressive stages: gingivitis, periodontitis, and advanced periodontitis. Drs. Bill and Becky Thomas at James W. Thomas, DDS, INC provide periodontal therapy to treat periodontal disease, regardless of its phase. Early detection and treatment are vital to preserving your teeth and oral health. Call our practice in Oxford, OH today to learn more about periodontal therapy.
How Is Gum Disease Treated?
At James W. Thomas, DDS, INC, we provide comprehensive screenings to detect each phase of periodontal disease and will develop an appropriate course for treatment. The first phase of gum disease, gingivitis, is frequently taken care of through a thorough cleaning and improving your daily dental hygiene. To manage periodontitis, the second stage of gum disease, scaling and root planing (also referred to as SRP) treatments are offered and can be combined with locally delivered antibiotics. Progressive-phase cases of periodontal disease can be better treated through a more intensive option, such as flap surgery or bone transplant techniques.
