If you have been experiencing gum problems, you will want to visit us at North Broad Family Dental. At our dental practice, our Roselle Park NJ local dentist, just one of whom is Dr. Jacob Plawner, can provide you with expert dental care, including periodontal care.
Depending on the type of gum problem you are experiencing, the treatment that you need will vary. If our Roselle Park NJ local dentist sees that you are developing gingivitis, a common precursor to gum disease, this problem can usually be easily addressed. You will simply need to have a series of regular dental cleanings over the coming months in order to get your gums to return to good health. If our dentist sees that deep pockets have formed between the teeth and gums, and that you have mild to moderate gum disease, you will most likely need to have a periodontal root scaling and planing treatment at our office. This treatment will clean out all the tartar, plaque, food debris and bacteria that has gathered in the deep pockets. You may also receive topical antibiotics during this gum treatment, as well. A scaling and root planing treatment can usually help gums to recover from gum disease. Although, sometimes the treatment will need to be repeated more than once. Additionally, it may be recommended that you have periodic periodontal cleanings on a preventive basis. If you develop gum disease, it will never go away by itself. So, it is very important to follow preventive care which includes excellent oral hygiene. And, if you are diagnosed with gum disease, it is important that you come to our dental practice for scaling and root planing treatments. Other periodontal treatments may be needed when there are other types of gum disease present, such as aggressive periodontal disease.
