periodonticsPeriodontal treatment starts with prevention: regular cleanings and good hygiene habits are excellent precautions to take to avoid gum disease. The main cause of periodontal disease is bacteria in the form of a sticky, colorless plaque that constantly forms on your teeth; however, other factors can cause the disease or influence its progression. Periodontal laser therapy treats the disease more effectively and comfortably than ever, removing scar tissue in periodontal pockets, killing bacteria causing the disease and promoting the reattachment of the gum to tooth. Scaling, root planing and local delivery of antimicrobials can treat and prevent the progression of the disease. In some cases, surgical therapy or cosmetic solutions may be necessary to correct the damage from gum disease physically and cosmetically. Dr. Patel can evaluate your situation and present the best treatment options for you.
