Periodontal disease (also known as gum disease) starts out small – you may notice some blood in your saliva after brushing and flossing, or your gums could seem strangely swollen. However, untreated cases can quickly advance in severity, eventually threatening your healthy teeth and jawbone. At Shore Dental, our team will always keep a close eye out for tell-tale signs of this infection, and therapy options are available to combat the damage done and help your smile regain full health. Please contact us today here in North Port, FL to schedule a checkup.

Scaling & Root Planing

Mild to moderate periodontal disease can typically be alleviated with an in-depth cleaning known as scaling and root planing. This procedure goes much deeper than your typical hygiene appointment, targeting harmful accumulations of bacteria from underneath the gum line. Our team will also carefully smooth any rough spots from the tooth roots, which can develop over time and are prime targets for plaque. The finished result should be a much healthier oral environment for your smile to thrive in.

Antibiotic Therapy

Antibiotic therapy may be recommended by our team as a supplement to the above two treatment methods in order to ensure more successful and comprehensive results. We will apply medication to the treatment site so that it can continue eliminating traces of harmful bacteria. This type of treatment may even reduce the size of the patient’s periodontal pockets, helping them avoid future flare-ups of infection.
