5 Successful Treatments for Advanced Periodontal Disease

Posted on 10/24/2022 by Todd Jorgenson
5 Successful Treatments for Advanced Periodontal DiseaseIf you are one of the millions who suffer from advanced periodontal disease, you know how frustrating and embarrassing it can be. You may have tried several treatments, but none seem to work. Here is a list of five successful treatments for advanced periodontal disease! Keep reading to learn more about these treatments and how they can help you regain your smile.

Scaling and Root Planing


Scaling involves the removal of tartar (mineralized plaque) present around the gum line, both above and below. Root planing eliminates dark spots seen at the root where bacteria can hide. It helps to prevent bacteria from reattaching to the teeth. Your periodontist may use a local anesthetic to numb your gums before scaling and root planing.

Antibiotics


Periodontitis can cause the gum tissue to separate from the teeth and form pockets. Bacteria enter these pockets and cause infection. You can take antibiotics by mouth and circulate them throughout the body. They are usually only used for severe infections. Commonly prescribed antibiotics for periodontitis include tetracyclines, amoxicillin, and penicillin.

Surgery


Severe periodontal disease can cause damage to the tissue and bone that support your teeth. Sometimes, your dentist or periodontist may recommend surgery to help restore these structures. Surgery can also reduce the depth of pockets around teeth, making it easier to keep them clean. It involves removing the bacteria and infected tissue from around your teeth.

Platelet-rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy


It is a three-step process that involves taking a small sample of blood, processing it to concentrate the platelets, and injecting it into the gums. PRP helps to regenerate tissue and reduce inflammation. Periodontal disease can separate the gum tissue from the teeth, creating pockets where bacteria can accumulate. PRP therapy helps to close these pockets and reduce the risk of further damage.
Our dental clinic offers different treatments to our patients depending on the severity of their periodontal disease. We will also consider your oral health before developing a treatment plan that is best for you.
