Understanding periodontal disease

Conditions such as periodontal disease are often common in patients who struggle to maintain their oral health between dental visits. The condition is essentially an infection that begins in the soft tissues. That is how it received the name “gum disease.” The infection develops from bacteria that settle in-between the gum tissue and the natural teeth. Pockets open up where bacteria thrive, causing the infection to worsen. Once periodontal disease has developed, it cannot be cured, only controlled, which is why prevention is vital to ensuring a healthy smile. Periodontal disease is often addressed with:

  • Antibiotics
  • More routine visits and examinations
  • Scaling and root planing procedure
  • Thorough cleaning of the teeth and gums

When Dr. Clint Bruyere diagnoses periodontal disease, the next step for patients is to discuss treatment. Treatment varies depending on the stage the condition has reached. In the earlier stage, known as gingivitis, many patients will benefit from a thorough cleaning of the teeth and gums. More advanced stages might require scaling and root planing. Regardless of the treatment method, many patients will also take oral antibiotics that can help in controlling the infection from the inside out.
