If you’ve been searching for a dentist near you who can treat and help prevent periodontal disease as well as provide precise placement for dental implants, then look no further than our dentists at Station Dental. Our conveniently located dental offices use the latest treatments and techniques to provide you with excellent care in a broad suite of services, including periodontics near you.
When you visit our dentists at Station Dental Group for periodontics evaluation and care, we’ll be looking for some of the earliest signs of periodontal disease, including red and swollen gums. We’ll ask you whether you’ve been experiencing painful chewing, sensitive teeth, or bad breath, in addition to noticing the degree of infection currently present in your gums. We’ll also ask you about any medications that you’re currently taking as well as any current health conditions such as heart disease and diabetes.
Our dentists near you will use a small and pain-free measuring instrument to determine the current depth of your gums’ periodontal pockets, and we may take x-rays to determine the health of your bone structure in your jaw. Once the level of your periodontal disease is determined, our dentists will recommend the level of treatment pertinent to your level of gum disease. For example, some patients may require scaling and root planing, while others may require more advanced oral surgery. Our dental care team will provide you with a customized treatment plan specific to your need for periodontics, including dental implant placement near you.
One of the best things you can do today to prevent the need for periodontics in the future is to maintain a regular and consistent schedule in preventive dentistry. When you visit our dentists for regular exams and cleanings, your gums’ health is always a part of the appointment. If early signs of gum disease are noticed, we’ll treat the condition with more advanced cleaning techniques to help prevent the disease from advancing. If you’ve noticed that your gums or teeth are sensitive or that your gums are swollen or bleed when you brush or floss, we invite you to make an appointment today to treat the condition sooner rather than later.
