When it comes to your oral health, preserving the natural teeth you were born with should always be the primary goal. Teeth are not just tools for chewing; they are essential to your overall well-being. That’s why it is crucial to explore non-surgical periodontal treatment options to maintain healthy gums and teeth before considering replacement solutions. In this article, we’ll delve into the world of non-surgical periodontal treatments and introduce you to the expertise of Dr. Bret Dyer and Dr. Thomas Nguyen at Fort Bend Perio in Sugar Land.
Preserving Your Natural Teeth
Every great periodontist understands the value of preserving your natural teeth first. These teeth are uniquely tailored to your mouth, and no artificial replacement can quite match their functionality, aesthetics, and overall harmony with your oral health. This is why non-surgical periodontal treatments are often the first line of defense against gum disease and other periodontal issues.
Non-Surgical Periodontal Treatment Options
Non-surgical periodontal treatments are minimally invasive procedures designed to address gum disease and other periodontal problems without the need for surgery. Here are some common non-surgical treatment options:
- Scaling and Root Planing: This deep cleaning procedure involves removing plaque and tartar from the tooth’s surface and below the gumline, followed by smoothing the tooth’s roots to prevent further buildup.
- Antibiotics: Local or systemic antibiotics may be prescribed to help control infection and reduce inflammation in the gums.
- Laser Therapy: Laser technology can be used to remove infected tissue and promote gum healing. It’s a minimally invasive and precise method for treating periodontal disease.
- Home Care and Maintenance: Your periodontist will educate you on proper oral hygiene practices and may recommend specialized tools or mouth rinses to help maintain your gum health at home.
