Gum Disease Treatment and Periodontal Services
When your body senses threats like infections, lacerations, or foreign bacteria, it is designed to rush to protect the area being threatened. The inflammatory response in healthy individuals kills off bacteria and helps to speed healing.
Unfortunately, when it comes to infections in your mouth, treatment can be a little more complicated. When your body detects plaque, tartar and bacteria in your mouth, instead of actively attacking the bacteria, it starts to protect itself by backing away. If the early stages of gum disease are left untreated, gums will recede away from the teeth, which can trigger a variety of other dental and oral health problems.
Thankfully, Dr. Landy offers treatment for any stage of periodontal disease to help your gums and the rest of your body heal.
Pinhole Gum Therapy
Receding gums can weaken your teeth, cause root damage and even leading to tooth loss. Through Pinhole Gum Therapy, receding gums are stabilized without using traditional surgical procedures such as cutting, grafting and stitches. This minimally invasive procedure can restore years to your smile and improve your overall health.
Gum disease increases your risk of systemic health problems, making it more difficult for your immune system to do its job. Ask Dr. Landy how non-surgical periodontal therapy can help prevent serious health problems like heart disease, pneumonia, premature labor, and more.
Gingivitis is often painless at first, making it difficult to diagnose without regular dental checkups. Inflammation of the gums can be a potentially serious condition, which is why it’s vital to get regular dental exams from ReNew Dental Care.
If you have been diagnosed with or are concerned you might have gingivitis, Dr. Landy offers a range of treatments to reverse or stop the progression of gum disease. If you are in the early stages of gingivitis, most treatment options are non-surgical procedures.
Gum Graft Surgery
Gum grafting is a common periodontal procedure performed at ReNew Dental Care. This procedure is commonly used to treat gum recession. Once completed, the soft tissue surrounding your teeth can begin to naturally regenerate, restoring a healthier smile. Benefits include reduced sensitivity, an improved smile appearance and overall improvement of gum health.
