Most Americans experience some form of periodontal disease, often without realizing it. Periodontal disease is chiefly responsible for adult tooth loss, bleeding gums, bad breath and receding gums. The truth is, it is easily prevented with proper hygiene, home care and professional treatment. If diagnosed in its early stages, gum disease treatments are easier, less invasive and more effective. Your visit to Dr. Trembley includes a complete examination of your gums and supportive structures, and you will have access to advanced periodontal therapy to heal and restore your oral health.
Preventive Fluoride Therapy
Fluoride is a mineral that is found naturally in many things we eat or drink. It is nature’s way of helping prevent cavities. Professional strength (in-office fluorides and low strength (home fluorides) each play important roles in helping to keep your teeth for a lifetime. Professional fluorides make teeth stronger and even heal weakened areas while home fluorides assist in this process. In the lifelong fight against cavities, both adults and children benefit from in-office treatment and home fluorides.
Root planing and scaling
This extensive cleaning treatment is provided by the hygienist for patients who have tartar, calculus and bacteria buried below the gum line on the tooth. Your regular tooth brushing and flossing removes the tartar that is above the gum line of your tooth. Root planing and scaling helps to prevent and in some cases treat gum disease. This technique is most often used when the gum pockets at your tooth have a measurement that is greater than 3mm. The average pocket depth is less than 3mm. When tartar and calculus attach to your tooth below the gum line, they pull the gum tissue away from the tooth creating the deep pocket. The tartar and calculus must be removed so that the gum can heal and close the pocket to less than 3mm. If not treated, the tartar and bacteria will begin to cause gum disease and deteriorate your bone, tissue and teeth.
