Periodontal Treatment


It’s easy to think of teeth when we think of general dentistry. Your teeth are what people see when you smile, after all, and they tend to become the focus of our efforts when we consider what we want to achieve with dentistry.

However, if you want strong, beautiful, healthy teeth, you need to keep their support structures just as strong. This means maintaining your gums and ensuring they stay healthy and sound. Fortunately, the experienced dentists at Dentonics, Inc. are capable of providing you with the top-notch periodontal treatment you need.

If you live in or around Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania and you’re looking for comprehensive general dentistry services, please call Dentonics, Inc. today at 412-487-6910 for a consultation.

What is Periodontal Treatment?

Pittsburgh Periodontal TreatmentPut simply, periodontal dentistry is targeted at the treatment of your teeth’s support structures – specifically, your gums. You can think of your gums as the equivalent to the foundation of your home. If your foundation crumbles, your house will eventually fall. Similarly, if your gums aren’t healthy, your teeth won’t be either.

Periodontal treatment is designed, above all else, to prevent, detect and then treat gum disease. There is little more dangerous to your oral health than gum disease. Insidious and easy to develop, gum disease, if left untreated, can disintegrate the basic superstructure of your oral health.

During your routine, regularly scheduled dental exams, we will conduct a thorough review of your periodontal health. We will check for:

  • Gum bleeding
  • The basic condition of your gums
  • Gum recession
  • Signs of bone loss
  • Signs of gum disease

When it comes to periodontal disease, prevention is crucial, and the key to prevention is a regular schedule of professional dental cleanings. But if gum disease does develop, early treatment is crucial. The longer gum disease is allowed to linger, the more it will be able to ravage your oral health.

Our office is equipped to provide you with the dental cleanings you need to keep your gums healthy. But we are also able to detect gum disease and treat it so that you can restore your teeth and gums to their appropriate level of health and beauty.
