Understanding Periodontal Disease

Understanding Periodontal Disease

Periodontal disease, also known as gum disease, is a condition that affects the tissues surrounding and supporting the teeth. Left untreated, it can lead to severe infections, tooth loss, and other significant health issues. Our goal at Layton Family Dental is to halt the progression of periodontal disease and maintain your oral health through effective treatment and regular maintenance.

The Importance of Periodontal Maintenance

Periodontal maintenance is crucial for patients who have experienced signs of periodontal disease or those at high risk. This ongoing treatment plan is designed to:

  • Prevent the Progression of Gum Disease: Regular cleanings and check-ups help keep periodontal disease at bay, preserving your natural teeth and gum health.
  • Detect Issues Early: Frequent examinations allow for early detection and treatment of potential problems, minimizing their impact.
  • Customized Care: Each patient’s periodontal maintenance plan is tailored to their specific needs, depending on the severity and progression of the disease.

Our Periodontal Maintenance Program

Comprehensive Evaluation

Our periodontal maintenance begins with a thorough evaluation of your gum health, assessing the depth of periodontal pockets, inflammation, and any bone loss that may have occurred.

Personalized Treatment Plans

Based on your evaluation, Dr. Layton devises a personalized treatment plan that may include deep cleaning procedures such as scaling and root planing, targeted antibiotic therapies, and recommendations for improved at-home care.

Regular Maintenance Visits

Periodontal maintenance involves regular visits to our office, typically every 3-4 months. During these visits, our team performs professional cleanings, monitors your gum health, and makes adjustments to your treatment plan as needed.
