Periodontal treatments focus on gums for enhanced dental health
By: RLJ Dental
Periodontal treatments focus on the foundation of oral health, restoring and preventing additional deterioration to gums. With independent offices throughout eastern Wisconsin, RLJ Dental provides expertise in periodontal treatments that ranges from non-invasive procedures to advanced surgical techniques.
Inflamed, tender and bleeding gums are the most common symptoms of periodontitis, commonly known as gum disease. Approximately three in every four adults will experience gingivitis, an early form of gum disease, during their lifetime. This is an important aspect of dental health in minimizing risk factors for heart and lung diseases.
RLJ Dental's dentists specialize in providing appropriate treatments for patients including non-surgical treatments, crown lengthening, dental implants and pocket reduction procedures.
Periodontal treatments get to the root of the matter
An annual comprehensive periodontal evaluation (CPE) from an RLJ Dental dentist is a good first step in the prevention of gum disease and development of an action plan for periodontal treatments. A CPE involves assessing the patient's teeth and gums, plaque level, bite, bone structure, and other risk factors. The goal of a CPE is to identify gum disease symptoms in their early stages to protect teeth and gums.
Periodontal disease can develop when bacteria in plaque builds up between the teeth and gums, causing the soft tissue in the gums to become tender and inflamed. In addition to regular brushing and flossing, risk factors such as age, smoking, diet and genetics can play a role in the development of gum disease.
