Periodontal treatment

Periodontal treatment refers to a range of dental procedures designed to treat the gums and the surrounding tissues that support the teeth. It is also commonly known as gum disease treatment. 

Periodontal treatment involves cleaning the teeth and gums to remove bacteria and other harmful substances that contribute to gum disease.

It is important to seek treatment for periodontal disease as soon as possible to prevent further damage to the teeth and gums. Your dentist or periodontist can evaluate your oral health and recommend the appropriate treatment for your specific needs.

A dental hygienist can provide routine scaling and deep root surface debridement to remove plaque and tartar buildup from the tooth surfaces and below the gumline. However, for more severe cases of gum disease, it may be beneficial for patients to seek advice and treatment from a periodontist.

Periodontists specialize in the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of gum disease and periodontal disease, and receive additional training in these areas beyond their general dental education. They are typically qualified to perform more advanced and complex procedures for managing gum disease.

Dr. Naresh Hirani at Chalfont Dentist has a Master of Science degree in Periodontology and is trained and experienced in carrying out advanced periodontal surgery procedures such as gum grafts, gum recontouring with lasers, bone grafts, and other advanced techniques.
