Periodontal disease, such as gingivitis, are serious ailments that can have a great effect on the health of your gums and the rest of your mouth. Some periodontal diseases can result in mild inflammation or cause damage to the gum tissues that can have an impact on your teeth. An accomplished dentist in Santa Clarita can make sure that you are receiving the right gum treatments for your specific condition. At Santa Clarita Valley Dental Care, we have been helping patients in Saugus, Canyon County, Valencia, and Stevenson Ranch receive outstanding dental and oral health care since 1979!
- There is a range of surgical and non-surgical options to treat gum disease, including:
- Professional cleanings included with routine dental care
- Root planning and scaling
- Bone grafts
- Soft tissue grafts
- Pocket reduction surgery
- Bone smoothing surgery
- Guided tissue regeneration
In addition to the deep cleaning and surgical options to treat gum disease issues, there are medications that can be used in tandem with those treatments or separately. This can include a prescription mouthwash, antiseptic chip, or antibiotic gel to reduce and control bacteria in the mouth. You can also take oral antibiotics or what is called an enzyme suppressant to help prevent the breakdown of the soft tissue in the mouth.
At Santa Clarita Valley Dental Care, we are known for offering an honest assessment of the health of your teeth and gums. That’s why we are trusted by many patients to be a credible second opinion on many issues. We can provide a personalized and helpful course of treatment for your gums.
