Periodontics Services in New Milford, CT

Periodontics deals with your gums’ health. Your gums are just as important as your teeth when it comes to your oral health. Gum disease can be a painful experience to go through, so it’s best to take every step we can to prevent it. We offer many types of techniques and procedures to keep your gums healthy and strong. We focus on prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of periodontal diseases and other ill conditions. Bacteria causes gum disease and plaque. When you fail to brush your teeth and care for them, plaque builds on them. Over time, this turns into tartar, which can only be removed by a dentist. This bacteria buildup irritates and inflames your gum tissues, as tartar is porous, leaving plenty of room for bacteria to stay and flourish.

If your gums are red, tender, swollen, or bleed during regular brushing, you may have gingivitis. At the first sign of discomfort or any of these symptoms, give us a call and make an appointment. The longer you wait, the worse the issue can become.

Root Planing & Scaling

We have many ways of dealing with the prevention and treatment of gum disease at our office. Root planing and scaling is the most conventional periodontal therapy technique. We clean deep below the gum line to treat any disease that may be hiding down there. This is a way of accessing hard-to-reach pockets between your gums and teeth where bacteria thrives.

Dental Prophylaxis

This process involves administering antibiotics to a patient to treat and prevent harmful bacteria that can lead to disease. It’s important to know what types of applications and how frequently to administer them to each patient to treat bacteria.

Debridement

If left untreated for too long, bacteria buildup can cause severe infection. The only way to start the healing process, in this case, is to remove the dead, damaged, or infected tissue. From there, we will begin helping your gums get healthy again.
