Dentist in ON Canada discusses possible non-surgical treatments for gum disease
Patients in ON Canada want to keep their natural teeth. However, when conditions such as gum disease develop, it can have a negative effect on one’s smile. Gum disease, sometimes known as periodontal disease, is an inflammatory condition that can affect the gum tissues, bone, and teeth. At Downtown Dental Centre Family Practice, our team of professionals can provide non-surgical gum treatment to halt the damage caused by gum disease and bring the smile back to health.
Non-surgical gum treatment solutions
There are several non-surgical options for patients who are faced with gum disease. Choosing the right one for you is done with the help of Dr. David Favell, who can assess the stage of periodontal disease and make a positive recommendation. Treatments include:
- Topical medications
- Root planing
Our team will provide patient education on how to maintain oral health at home between appointments, and ongoing assessments should be performed to monitor the condition and provide additional treatments if necessary. Developing a treatment plan for gum disease is necessary to control it.
What treatment am I a candidate for?
There is no “one size fits all” solution for patients with periodontal disease or other dental problems. Therefore, patients are advised to work regularly with a dentist they know and trust to monitor their oral health and wellness and to help make decisions regarding treatment options available. Choosing solutions together with a professional is the first step in restoring a beautiful smile!
