What periodontal treatment options are available at Cambridge Family Dental?

Cambridge, Wisconsin, area patients who are diagnosed with periodontal disease may have a lot of questions about this condition and what can be done. If you are considering your options for periodontal treatment, we encourage you to visit with Dr. Angela Bauer Williams and her team for an evaluation and solutions for restoring oral health and wellness after infection has occurred.

What is periodontal disease?

Dr. Bauer describes periodontal disease as a gum infection that requires treatment from a gum specialist. There are several stages of periodontal disease, including the initial stage, known as gingivitis, and the later stage referred to as advanced periodontitis. When this condition is diagnosed, patients should seek periodontal treatment, deep cleanings, and maintenance recommendations from our team.

What type of treatment may be required to address periodontal disease?

Depending on the severity of the disease, several different treatment options may be recommended. Regular dental cleanings and improved oral hygiene practices might reverse the condition in mild cases. However, additional procedures may be necessary in more advanced stages, including scaling and root planing, laser treatment, or even surgery.

The goal of effective periodontal treatment is to eliminate the bacteria responsible for the infection. While the condition cannot be cured, it can be maintained over time to reduce the risk of damage to the teeth, gum tissues, and bone. In fact, our team encourages patients to have their condition under control before considering other restorative and cosmetic dentistry treatments to enhance the smile. During your initial consultation with Dr. Bauer, you can speak to her about treatment for periodontal disease and other treatments that can enhance and restore your smile!
