Periodontal Therapy for Patients with Gum Disease


Is gum disease destroying your smile? One of the reasons why Dr. Ally screens for periodontal disease during every exam is because of the huge impact that gum health can have on the future of your smile. In fact, gum disease causes more tooth loss in adults than cavities do.

Symptoms of Gum Disease

How can you tell if you have periodontal disease? Look for signs like:

  • Bleeding gums
  • Gum recession
  • Tooth sensitivity
  • Food packing between your teeth
  • Bad breath
  • Loose teeth

To manage gum disease, we recommend a series of deep cleanings (periodontal scaling and root planing.) These visits remove the plaque and tartar buildup deep below the gum lines, which cause the gums to detach from the teeth. Once a healthy, clean environment is achieved, it makes it easier for our patients to reverse their oral infection.

After a deep cleaning, we will probably recommend a 3 or 4-month recall program until symptoms are completely reversed. This allows us to monitor your improvement and prevents the need for retreatment.

In some cases, Dr. Ally may recommend placing medication into deeper pockets to improve their ability to recover.
