What is Periodontal Disease?

Mission Hills Dental

Periodontal disease refers to inflammatory gum disease that affects the soft tissues around the tooth, and possibly even the jawbone itself when the condition is advanced.

The best way to prevent such disease is through regular cleanings and examinations. After all, periodontal disease usually begins with gingivitis, a bacterial infection of gum tissue.

At Mission Hills Dental, we believe regular dental hygiene can greatly assist patients in avoiding this difficult condition.

However, should it occur, we are well skilled in treating this progressive disease that can, if left untreated, lead to gum and jawbone destruction, shifting or loose teeth, and teeth loss. In fact, periodontal disease is the leading cause of tooth loss.

Treatment Options

Scaling, Root Planing and More

While there may be few or no symptoms as periodontal disease separates teeth from infected gum areas, we can recognize the common types of this disease and help you to stop it in its tracks, whether it is chronic, aggressive, necrotizing, or systemic.

We offer a variety of treatments to deal with periodontal disease, following a thorough exam in order to best recommend treatment types. Scaling and root planing are one type of procedure, that involves cleaning gum pockets and treating them with antibiotics.

Tissue regeneration is another treatment option, through grafting. Pocket elimination surgery and the use of dental implants due to tooth loss are also offered by our skilled team at Mission Hills Dental.
